Self Managers. I demonstrate the above skills when I complete training and/or distance learning courses. I like to further my learning, by taking part in as much training as possible to better my knowledge in my role as a carer. E.g. I had heard about some ‘distance learning’ courses that a few of my colleagues had completed in the past, and enquired to my manager about any available.
I met with the director of Harambee, an older woman by the name of Mrs. Wendy. She gave me a brief tour of the center, before she walked me to the assigned classroom which I was able to observe for my paper. She spoke very highly of her staff and the relationships they have with their students. As I walked through the center, I noticed various posters of learning, collages of the student’s artwork, and many pictures of the field trips they went on. Already, I can see that they interact with the children in a great deal, confirming that this institute of learning takes the education and love they put into the children very serious.
The use of journals assisted them tracking their thoughts which led to their behaviors in the classroom. The teachers realized pre and post thoughts were different. Cognitive coaching includes skills that are necessary for our future leaders. When teachers can learn from each other the impact on the student’s is priceless. The best way to learn is to teach.
I did enjoy everything I learned on peer reviews and how effective those can be. Especially since I have been able to apply them to my job and to help expand my boss from just mundane comments to actual constructive reviews. Plagrisim is something that has been touched on since I was in middle school, possibly even elementary school but I can’t exactly remember back THAT far. Seeing how it has affected people in the spotlight has shed some huge light onto how it is a serious offensive and isn’t to be taken lightly. Sometimes I will draw and I have friends who are artists and someone taking their work and not giving them credit is a huge offense to them.
In Middle class schools students are expected to learn and follow the guidelines the teachers provide. Anyon analyzed that students in middle class schools must “follow the directions in order to get the right answers, but directions often call for some figuring, some choice, and some decision making.”(p128) Students should often figure out what the directions ask and solve the problem themselves. The teachers are there to give students the first step in order for them to succeed. Milpitas high is also an Affluent Professional school. In an Affluent Professional school students are encouraged to work and think independently, they are as Anyon said, “Constantly asked to express and apply ideas and concepts.”(p130) Suggesting that the
Executives should encourage their communication teams to study what motivates customers to but their product, and then communicate that information to company management and employees (Stuart, Sarow, & Stuart, 2007). USAA does a great job at segmenting their customer base and is in the process of working on a marketing structure to best fit each group. Each generation and culture learns a little differently and varying income level and education affect your ability to have and obtain knowledge on certain subjects. USAA membership has been traditionally an officer based group, who over the years has opened up their membership to family and anyone who has served honorably in the United States Military. As the original membership begins to become a minority of their book of business, the children and family members, as well as the enlisted market has become the largest part of their customer base.
Introduction Market Share is the simulation which bridges real life marketing issues with techniques learned in the classroom. Throughout the 6 periods we learned how to successfully manipulate the marketing mix in a way that was profitable and beneficial to our company. Though the first few periods were major learning experiences, we used knowledge from the book to help us make sound decisions throughout the simulation. We learned to value our customers, and provide satisfaction for our brand. Below is a synopsis of our strategy, showing how we bridged concepts from our reading within the simulation.
ICELT Course 2012 – 2013 METHODOLOGY ASSIGNMENT #1 EVALUATION OF TEACHING INTRODUCTION Reflection is one of the most powerful tools teachers have at hand to explore what aspects or skills of their teaching need to be improved or changed in order to achieve the main aim and learning objectives stated in the lesson plan. Thus, it is my intention to reflect, through this methodology assignment, which elements of the lesson I taught were successfully and less successfully achieved and the probable causes of these. Since this is a business English course imparted to executives and employees of an international company, the lesson I chose for the purpose of this assignment was a skills-based lesson contextualized to job recruitment, application and selection. The reasons underlying my decision for teaching
I want to experiment with what builds a sense of community, support, care, and motivation in my classroom and I assume this will take place in many forms. Torey sought out and found ways to communicate and build relationships with her students, some of the time these ways were non-verbal and rather based on feeling; I hope to create the same sort of atmosphere in my classroom, to have those important one on one moments with my students. This passage in the book also reminded me of a recent conversation I had with my supervising teacher about the hiring process. She told me that some of the best teachers have the worst interviews, but when she’s looking for a potential teacher she relies mostly on intuition; if she believes an individual truly loves children, she is much more likely to hire them regardless of their interview. (Of course the individual would have to demonstrate some basic competencies) The passage also made me think of the beauty of the teaching profession and how it really is difficult to explain to a non-teacher; there are so many small and large events that happen on a daily basis in the academic world that creates a world of amazement and appreciation for the growing
Overcoming Resistance to Learning 1 Overcoming Resistance to Learning 2 Malcolm Knowles’ (1989) principles for overcoming resistance to learning have given me a new perspective on adult learning. His techniques for getting people to become self-directed learners have prompted me to change the way my company presents professional development plans to our employees. There are also obvious parallels between Knowles’ principles, and the Principles of Adult Learning course. Resistance to learning is a challenge I am required to overcome quite frequently in my work as a training manager. Some of the training programs I administer are professional development plans for individuals wanting to be considered for a promotion, or recently promoted from within the organization.
