Australia is a multicultural and diverse country with the input of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and other Australian people. The Indigenous Australians, or Aborigines, are the original inhabitants of Australia who have their own cultures, customs, beliefs, knowledge and languages. The Indigenous people are the early settler of Australia, and they have distinctive perspectives on worldview, beliefs, tensions, celebrations compare with non-indigenous people. As knowledge is the factor of production in its right, and invaluable, the socio-economic development of the organisation or society depends on their knowledge. Knowledge is a type of true belief,
The reflective log will critically discuss and reflect on the process of producing an academic poster as part of a group. To do this, it will focus on the main challenges and positive experiences of working collaboratively with others. Whilst discussing the impact it has had in raising my awareness of the importance of partnerships and collaboration within multi-agency working. Finally, it will reflect on how gaining a better understanding of multi-agency working and the role I take within a group impacts on my future professional practice.
Within describing the group dynamics, the reader’s tone of voice wasn’t clear and it was hard to hear them. The leader of the group was outstanding. The leader had the group members attention throughout the
One of the most effective teaching tools to assess and stimulate critical thinking is questioning. Questions are mostly used to generate the recall of previous knowledge, but effective questioning lead to advance student learning and engender discussions.
By participating as an SIP intern, I hope to gain experience in the scientific field and to further my passion in science. When I am a working adult, I would be most happy spending my days in bioengineering. I highly enjoy delving into biology- I love the classes, reading its applications, and researching what the career is like. Thinking narrowly, participating as an SIP intern gives me a chance to spend my summer well. Real lab experience is something I have not acquired yet, and look forward to gaining. As an intern, I would be able to engage in my passions in other enjoyable ways, alternative to classes, studying, or watching Crash Course Biology videos. Looking towards my future, interning at SIP will expand my network and potentially
I attended a meeting of Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDA). CoDA is an open group aimed to help those who self-identify as co-dependent. Similar to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), CoDA is a self-help group founded upon the twelve steps. This group is run by its members, not by a professional, and it focuses on individual rather than societal concerns (Doel and Kelly, 2014). The meeting was easy to find through their website, coda.org, though it did require some travel to get to a meeting as they are not as common as AA or NA. The meeting I attended was a “Newcomers Meeting”, meaning it was specially designed to welcome new members and help get their needs met and questions answered by members who had been around for a while.
Likewise, their exam results showed the positive effect of group work in mathematics. Students in the experimental group performed better in the integration section of the exams than the control group.
According to Berg and Lune (2012), focus groups are a valuable tool for an ethnographer. The focus group can be used in different ways; from gathering information to start a project, to gauging attitudes about a topic or validating information that an informant/interviewee has described. Much in the way one would get a second opinion from a doctor after a diagnosis, a focus group can strengthen the insight obtained and potentially uncover other cultural information, terminologies and even subcultures. Unlike individual interviews, a focus group can be broader reaching and more dynamic, but could potentially be sabotaged by stronger participants. It is through the group’s discussion that information is gathered, one individual’s comments
I did not know what to exactly do. There was a lot waiting for the meeting to start. I thought the person who led the discussion was taking a bit longer than expected. There was a disagreement with the person not able to attend another meeting because that conflicts with their time. I thought this to be a bit unprofessional to be discussing for the meeting. Especially, if a regular person who took their time to attend this meeting. I excepted that to be the end of the disagreements. But the person brought up a new argument and led to another time spent with useless information. Although, there was a lot of things I was surprised with the meeting. The people in the meeting were dressed professionally. Another thing I found surprising was the main people were in the center while the rest of us were sitting around. I was a bit confused at the beginning. I did not realize we had to pick up papers until the people in the center started to review a paper. Once, I grabbed the paper I saw numbers while the other packet contained bills. They mostly reviewed the packages and read over random
Group facilitators values can tell a lot about whether a group program will be successful for certain individuals. However, it is important, group facilitators keep a select amount of key values. Facilitators should always respect the members, acknowledging each member as unique individuals. The group facilitator should value sense of hope. Although a group facilitator does not have to acknowledge the behaviors or thoughts of a member as right or wrong, or moral in any way. It is important for the facilitator to accept that it is a thought, behavior, or experience of the member and attempt to understand it. Group leaders should also value every member with sympathy, respect, empathy, genuine acceptance, and unconditional positive regard. Leaders should also value members’ choices and opinions, as well as, acknowledge each member is
