Ethical beliefs vary from person to person; however for the most part, there are ethical standards that everyone knows and for the most part understands. Teaching ethics to someone would be defining the basic difference between what is right and wrong and how to apply that to daily life. Here is a simple example of an ethical dilemma a student could face: a friend gives a student the answers to the upcoming test; he or she could do no work and just copy the answers from their friends paper to their own. However, the student chose not to do this and takes the test himself or herself. This student showed a strong positive moral understanding of this ethical dilemma and chose to make the better decision.
I write a vocabulary word on one card and the definition on another card then I make a matching game. I write down how many I get right and how many I get wrong, for each one I get wrong I place them aside and review them again after I finish the game. For each one I get right I provide a reward. Having fun with studying and learning teaches you to enjoy the classes your taking and what you’re learning instead of boring you and make you not want to review or do the assignment. Being an over achiever
When confidentiality is maintained, only qualified personnel have access to the results of the test, however this principle can also be void if the patient poses harm to him/herself or others. This principle goes hand in hand with knowledge of results principle, which ensures that the patient has a right to a full disclosure of the testing results. (Hogan, 2007) In order to ensure valid results, psychologist must make sure that the person taking the test is competent. By ensuring this, norms, reliability, validity and construction are developed and the test is utilized in a responsible manner. Competency also allows for test takers to feel comfortable and capable, resulting in a better diagnosis and treatment.
I have many resources that are available for my success in graduation, continued education, and my career. The resources that I have available to me are my family, my academic advisor, the alumni network for mentoring, my finance advisor, enrollment counselor, and other classmates. I will use these resources when I seem to feel negative and need a pick me up, have questions about my loans, have questions about my classes, etc. I know that in using these resources it will help me toward my academic goals. How will you stay motivated?
“The only real learning for leadership is leadership " THE HISTORY - WHAT I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT MYSELF During my undergraduate study, I had taken the Myers-Briggs test which forced me to admit what I am not capable of performing as an individual. I have learned that I value my strengths and take advantage of my abilities, but ignore my weaknesses. To grow as a person and get what I want out of life I must not only capitalize on my strengths, but also face my weaknesses head on. This will not only better me as a person, but it will also force me to be honest with myself. One of my personal strengths is that I am able to cut straight to the chase in any situation and not be sidetracked by non-essential issues; Moreover, I have a propensity for leadership, which follows naturally, from my ability to control and manage real world situations.
A student can use writing as a learning experience as well; by using the material obtained to ask worthwhile questions, explain details to readers, and get feedback from the material. This allows a student to obtain maturity and flexibility, as well as, evaluate the adequacy of details or information being presented in the writing. Writing is also a vital job skill in the professional world. In every career path an employee is expected to create some kind of note, memo, email, or report; all of these require effective communication. In most professions, individuals start at entry level positions and based on their job performance, their position expands.
Also, if I do not consider the mood or sensitivities of the receiver of my message, its impact is negated. When training to be a teacher, I was always encouraged to be aware that some people learn better by listening, taking notes and reflecting, whilst some are stimulated by pictures, graphs and realia and others learn best by doing things and discovering for themselves. This is dependent on one’s particular modality, or sensory perception, whether it be auditory, visual or kinaesthetic (or a combination). As teachers, we were trained to be student-centred, which seems to correspond with the humanistic approaches of psychologists such as Maslow and Rogers, where “an individual’s behavior is best understood by trying to understand their world from their point of view” (Sanders, 2009:23), These ideas, and more, can be transferred to how one should behave and speak when working with clients, during an induction. One starts with the transparent aim that treatment will be at least partially successful and will thus utilize any means or methods with which to expedite that process.
Reflective Journal 1 – My Experience with Persuasive Writing Melody D. Williams ENG 215 – Research and Writing Prof. Holly Sprinkle January 20, 2013 My Experiences with Persuasive Writing With persuasive writing we try to convince our audience that they should agree with our point of view based on facts, and knowledge. I use persuasive writing in several aspects of my life from business, to college, and even in my family life. In my professional life, I use persuasive writing to convince employees of the benefits of contributing to the company’s 401K plan, participating in the Education program, and enrolling in the Health Benefit program. By showing the employees in writing the benefits of each of these programs with facts to back up my suggestions, they are able to get a clear picture of how they would benefit from participating. During my education, I will use persuasive writing to create papers that will demonstrate my understanding of the subject being discussed, as well as to convince the professor that I have done research and that I am knowledgeable about the subject being discussed.
Just learning theory for the fun of it or without a constructive meaning, isn’t very useful to the online learner. Lieb also suggests that the adult learner is practical. The work must be relevant so the tasks have to complement their professional experiences or interests. If they can apply what they learned on the job the next day, that creates a sense of significance with the learner and motivates their activities. Using survey questionnaires containing both closed and open ended items, C. J. MacGregor also compared students in online and traditional classes.
Moreover, be open to learning from other students. For example, when a classmate receives an A paper, ask to see it. This will give you an example of what the professor is looking for and you can apply this knowledge to future assignments or tests. Interacting and networking with other students will help you to make comfortable with others are doing your paperwork. The third step to being successful students is to request for help if you ever
