When working on the proposal, I had to rewrite my thesis many times until it was able to relate to the audience and purpose of my paper. Another way that ENC1102 has helped me with my struggles has been to be able to go deeper into explaining my points. Whenever I had points I had to make in an essay or any work for my classes, I have
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thoughts, observations, and reflections on the academic writing that was presented within the Capella University writing course. The enclosed portfolio will provide additional detail to what I have learned throughout this course, and showcase my strengths and weaknesses. During the course, I have evolved within my writing due to the specific way this course compartmentalized each step of the writing process. For example, the first three units provided a way to analyze research on a specific topic and critique the data presented in the scholarly article. I have always felt that my research skills were good, however, the feedback received made me realize that I need to critique the studies more to be able to apply the results to my topic of interest.
According to my Leadership Practices Inventory (LPO)/360 feedback, I need to more actively seek out challenging opportunities that test my skills and abilities. First and foremost, I will personally implement the Coast Guard’s Individual Development Plan and reevaluate my goals. This will highlight completed goals, realign my sight if it veered from previous incomplete objectives and illuminate changes to my goals, allowing me to refocus my efforts on new and more challenging directions. Furthermore, to effectively combat my struggling to find challenges to my skills and abilities, I must insert myself into more duties, searching for elements outside of my comfort zone. I already maintain a teachable attitude and a willingness to explore, but my time remains critical and demanded by many existing projects.
Therefore, since conflict is inevitable we must learn how to manage it. Conflict is an indication of a need for change and an opportunity for growth, having a new appreciation for another’s view and improving
Through this class I learned about Focus2. Focus2 is a self-paced, on-line career and educational planning tool that I can use to assist me in making important decisions like choosing an academic major or career. The VARK (Visual, Aural, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic) on-line questionnaire is designed to help me discover and explore career options and major areas of study that match my interests, personality, values and skills. There are four different learning styles Visual learners, Aural learners, Read/Write learners, and Kinesthetic leaners. After I took the VARK Questionnaire, I received my results for each section.
These beliefs are the ones that you should target for change. You need to engage in a project of belief realignment. That is, the process of introducing new a whole new mindset to take place of the older maladaptive one. The current belief structure you have in your mind has failed you, and its time for a new one--one that empowers you and compels you forward toward action. You've already begun that process by reading the first post in this series.
Reflecting on the discussion, I had learnt to use negatives in a situation and examine why it was negative and how I can use my past experiences to develop my pedagogy. This entry highlights that I had realised the importance of talking with a more knowledgeable and reflecting through the discussion and after. Documenting this in a reflective diary shows how I went through the procedure of letting my formerly held values and assumptions to be questioned by another professional. I was open-minded on other views, particularly as they were from people who I valued and knew were knowledgeable and my discussions allowed me to reflect further on the topic of behaviour management. I had time to reflect independently and I started to develop my own opinion.
This module and coursework requirements were directed to present some crucial and effective experience for me. During the entire course, I had learnt a number of different learning, which can be proved quite helpful for me to build a successful and attractive career ahead. I can present the significance of the coursework activities done in terms of my learning from this subject. The reflection of the coursework learning can be presented as below: Problems faced during the research work: Although I have been able to finish my coursework requirements within the time frame.
Introduction Summary In my portfolio I will be outlining my current professional activities where I have been using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), the background as to why I choose to do the Masters in CBT and the current skill base I have learned and continue to improve to help me become a more reflective and effective practitioner. I will describe principles and standards I adhere to that help protect my clients from harm and the models of reflection I use in my practice. I will discuss case studies that will reflect higher order learning including my strengths and weakness and highlight areas that I have been developing and will need to develop ongoing throughout my professional life. Background
Major assignments -Work Projects- taught me how to write essays and include employed academic documentation (MLA). In this course, I’ve completed various reading assignments, did independent analytical thinking about what I’ve read, participate in discussions on what I’ve read, write about what I’ve read, and carry out research, this emphasis on reading was to show the importance of critical reading, and how it is going to benefit my studies. Understanding this academic essay structure, the use of rhetorical strategies in essay writing, writing a summary, formulating a thesis, and writing essays using rhetorical strategies. All these skills were the fruit of researching and
What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something. The steps I had to take was to write a outline overview of what my essay was going to be like and think about the argument and claims I had to pick to support it and find quotes in the book that support my claims. We had to do timed essay about are theme of the essay were going to on. The way we wrote the essay was in TIED format because it would be easier to introduce the claim and back it up with evidence and finally discuss what it means. The leadership skill I used was to complete project effectively because I had to concentrate what I was writing about.
Throughout the semester we have worked on multiple unit papers. Each paper had different categories of learning objectives to accomplish. These categories consist of rhetorical knowledge, critical reading/critical thinking, academic writing conventions, and the writing process. Two essays that I found to be helpful in completing the course objectives were the unit 2 and unit 3 essays. I met some of the course objectives, but also struggled with some.
So the The focus of my education will be to utilize theories on adult learning and methods of long-term retention within the context of their preferred communication and learning styles. Much like the University of Minnesota utilizes voice-over PowerPoints and reading assignments to engage multiple senses and provide a framework for learning, I will provide various sources of content and structure according to cognitive and constructionist learning theories (10x10 with University). I will package my content in modules spread over several weeks, like the 10x10 program, in order to give the students time to fully absorb the information and begin to apply it to their work. Leading into the classes I will provide them with a big picture overview and open a discussion on the importance of learning this material in order to increase buy-in and engagement. I believe that by using cognitive and constructionist theories to maximize LTM as well as theories on adult learning and the Shannon-Weaver communication model, I can deliver exceptional informatics education to my
When it comes to Rhetorical knowledge, I have developed mine throughout the semester in WRTG 120. After analyzing different writing and visual assignments for rhetorical appeals, I have gained a better understanding of the term Rhetoric and how this can help with my writing. The next topic is the writing process. I have increased my knowledge on the writing process in this class after doing multiple drafts for each of the projects we did throughout the class. Doing multiple drafts and revising over and over again helped me realized how much you can change a piece of writing to make it sound that much better.
I gain much experience advising each student and was able to apply much of the theory I acquired this semester as well as some of the counseling techniques I learn last semester from my advising course. Being a former Puente student, I felt that the students could sense the genuine support I was express when acknowledging their problems and at times share my own experiences with the transfer process.
