Then again, I do not work as indicated by agendas and in order to start achieving my goals, I need to be highly motivated. After taking the survey, I learned that I need to manage my time accordingly. There should be time for fun and time for serious work. Individuals who have lower future orientation experience arousal procrastination, putting things off to get a last minute rush. I sometimes distance from or reject future goals so that I can reduce present tension and look for more immediate and pleasurable rewards than longer arranges or future objectives.
For the PowerPoint I will write what I need to and make sure that there are a lot of visual aids like pictures and graphs to back up my point but I will check over the work more than once so that there isn’t any mistakes such as spelling or wrong information that would make it look less professional. But for my speaking I will write down what I’m going to talk about and go over it more and more to make sure that I have memorised all of my lines or at least got the idea of what I wrote. When I write down what I’m going to say I have to keep in mind of my audience so I don’t speak in to many high level terms if I’m in a beginners class or speak like a beginner in a professional class. Also if they are my bosses or important people that I have to look professional and keep in the zone whereas if it was a presentation to people my age or younger I could relax a little and not have to worry as much as I could try and get on the level with them creating a better environment where everyone can join in and not feel like I’m just throwing words at them. So throughout this I think that overall I have made good use of all of the interpersonal and written communications techniques that I have learnt throughout all my units.
My communication skills need improving to make sure I speak clearly ( this could have been due to being nervous), and a little more loudly and slowly than normal. I have learnt that some of the words used in communicating verbally need to reflect equality and inclusiveness and not be biased in any way. Some of my peers said if this was a core subject I needed to identify which elements of the minimum core is being addressed, especially the specific ones and to add these to my lesson plans and scheme of work in
The less important tasks can be done when it’s quiet or at a later date. The important tasks would be labelled urgent and would prioritise them again. This will help me with each task and it will ensure that each task will be done to the standard required of me. I would also create a check list so I can check that each step has been achieved. Project 2.
For example, participants were primed before the study began to to use to “f” fricative. This was achieved by the experimenters priming participants by only using words which made sense to have an “f” fricative, for example, “sco__” which would become “scoff”. This meant that when participants began listening to words with ambiguous fricatives, they immediately returned the “f” fricative because they had be lexically guided towards that fricative. The are limitations regarding using eye tracking technology for the study. For example, participants began to search for the “f” fricative before the words had appeared on the screen, suggesting that they may have began to understand what the research aim of the study was and therefore showing demand characteristics.
If I am unable to maintain to the planned schedule, I will either make up for the lost time in my own time, or I will instead reschedule so I can still complete the set task(s) on time. 4. What strategies do you use to prioritise your personal goals and objectives with those of your team and organisation, to ensure they are all addressed? When I am working in a team or an organisation, I make sure that I have addressed those tasks over other individual tasks to
My Learning Style Essay The reason for doing this essay is to try and discover which is my best and worst way to learn and then to come up with a strategy for improving my ability to learn. The first thing that I need to do is research what different learning styles there is, after I have done this I can determine what are my preferred learning styles. I have always thought I learned better when I took a hands-on approach. This type of learning is called Physical (kinesthetic). After taking a short questionnaire, I also found that I prefer to learn with visual aids, such as pictures and graphs.
The effective and controlled use of paralinguistics and body language ensures that the desired message is expressed effectively and assists in the audience’s interpretation of the presentation. These skills will alleviate the speaker’s anxiety and enhance the audience’s attention. Public speaking is used to convey a message to the listener/s and the process can be amended by discovering information about the audience, allowing the speaker to create a bond with the audience. (Seiler and Beall 2011: 178) refer to audience analysis as ‘the collection and interpretation of data about characteristics, attitudes, values, and beliefs of an audience’. An inquiry of the audience can be made through direct observation, making an inference from the observation or data collection.
Personal Reflection Paper In my first discussion question that I answered for this course I said that the difference between thinking and critical thinking was the way that we act upon a thought. I also said that a critical thinker will ask more questions to have a better idea about a particular issue. According to Elder (2009), “It is the art of analyzing and evaluating with the goal of improving thought.” (p.9). During this course I have learned many interesting subjects in relation to critical thinking, but there are three that I found to be most significant. The first one is that individuality means more than claiming independence, it means achieving it by acknowledging the influences that have shaped my thinking, by sorting and evaluating my ideas and attitudes, and finally by choosing the best ideas by resisting the pressure of habit and by changing the ways that I think because the evidence tells me to do so.
In completing certain exercises that are in different chapter s in Burley I am able to see my faults, strengths and weakness. There was an exercise on dissipating bad habits and the end result of not ending them is disorder. Those s help one examine oneself introspectively and to begin to work on self reformation.. The article on self disclosure stated that one must be careful not to disclose any information that the other person might feel is offensive, he or she must be careful to start off slowly self disclosing and hopefully, the relationship will grow and one can add much more as time permits.
