This is why I choose to do most of my work outside of the classroom. With that being said, I understand the reasons for attendence and have the outmost respect for the rules. But as a personal note, I find that some courses can sometimes be less beneficial from being in the class because the professor might have an accent or an argument that confuses me more times than not. Another way I have improved my grades is by utilizing the members at the tutoring center. The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand.
This whole journey was very reflective to me. Lets just say there were many things that did not work for me this semester, no matter how hard I tried or pushed. What definetly did not work was sending out emails to my peer mentors, that really turned out bad. I would send out emails to my mentees asking for their opinion on activities for us to do, and also to remind them of the planned activities. So realizing that emails did not work at all, I decided to do announcements at the beginning of class.
In addition to this I am quite introverted and have never enjoyed talking about myself. As a result of this I often struggle in interviews and fail to mention key facts that would improve my employability in order to not appear boastful or too unreserved. To combat this, I did a number of things. One of the first things I did was speak to other students who have previously had interviews in this section. This was especially beneficial as not only could they reassure me that it would be fine, they were also able to give me advice on the things to talk about.
As of today, most of all the students don’t give much attention on values courses which is in fact can help them mentally in dealing on their major courses. This research aims to explain how values courses are being set aside and why Khalil Gibran 's book "The Prophet” can help ignite the interest of the students towards values education. The researchers sought to answer these questions as we plan to conduct the research: • Why does Khalil Gibran’s book, “The Prophet” be used as a mode to teach values in college? • What makes the book effective in imposing such values? • How can “The Prophet” contribute to values formation?
I have always considered myself to be an introvert as I prefer to listen to others than converse in front of a sizable audience. Since grade school, I had always been told by my teachers to present my ideas and participate often in class discussions. Sometimes, I used to like expressing my thoughts during a in class discussion but I soon learned than this was more often dependant on the topic that was being discussed. Sometime around the end of my junior year I had perfected the topics that interested me and had almost told myself to shutdown during class discussions that revolved around a specific topic which I did not like. Most of the topics that I rarely shared my thoughts about were connected to our society and its cultural values.
Of course I have real friends, but they are not in my class, and others are not even in my Faculty. When I was in secondary school and high school I felt very lonely, but I think that since elementary school I understood that I was different from the rest. I studied at Professor Luis Villarreal Martínez Elementary School, and the kids there used to say that “I wasn’t normal”, but why? Surely, because I wasn't like them. I didn't used to play with
I think the main reason this project failed all boils down to lack of motivation in students, insufficient time and work load. If you think about it in a constructivist point of view interest and motivation are important factors in learning. They might see it as a waste of time. Considering the amount of work load we have, most students have classes from 8am-5pm; any free time they get is precious which can be used to complete assignments, study for quizzes or for resting. And the failure might be due to the fact half of the time we didn’t really know what to do.
In general—even prior to my communications class—I consider myself a skilled communicator and a friend that is beyond willing to listen and resolve struggles; however, I did not recognize how much psychology was behind the way we communicate. Former to registering for the class I knew I had areas to improve upon such as body language, lack of self-disclosure, and attribution, all of which I created plans to therefore enhance, yet I had no doubt in my capabilities to be empathetic, skillful at solving conflict, and confident while speaking in front of others. Throughout the class I realized that above my words, my body
These theories have crucial points for one’s life. However, literature has lack of evidence to find a connection between them. Since attachment and resiliency have so many concepts in common, realizing the connection between them and using this at counseling session may help counselors and also clients to make the process better and quicker. Especially for university students and university counseling centers, time is the most important issue. Since there are so many students who want to get help from counseling centers but there are lack of counselors and also places to give counseling service, counseling centers are usually restricted the intervention process for students.
But, even though I have experienced elements of management in Master’s class, such as group work or class project, I still lack knowledge of how to motivate, inspire and engage people and definitely need to learn and improve. One illustration can be a situation of my current sales team where very few people are committed, and I do not have any clue on how to involve others. But there are few elements with tacit knowledge that I am good at like planning and organizing which I used to do on a regular basis when I was working for Infosys. Teamwork is another element, which I have learnt
