This class forced me to become more organized. Through the various assignments, I have mastered the use of technology. I learned to communicate through discussion question with my classmates and instructor. Therapy is very effective treatment for mental and emotional problems; however, in order to reap the benefits, it is important to choose the right therapist. Someone a person can trust who make them feel cared for and has the experience to help make changes for a better life or self.
Because it was a collaborative writing project, I was able to benefit from my peers based on the skills they already had so I improved by permitting my peers to teach and help me through the use of their skills that they already possessed. It has allowed me to understand ways that my peers conduct their writing and observe their habits which endorsed me to develop new habits/practices that will benefit me in the long run. These habits and practices have allowed me to improve in ways that have helped me shape who I am as a
I enjoy learning from others and listening to their ideas or thoughts about certain topics. Collaboration is a huge part of working in the schools because speech-language pathologists work in a multi-disciplinary team within the schools. We must collaborate with classroom teachers, social workers, and psychologists. I have an open attitude towards change if someone else’s idea sounds more beneficial and efficient than mine. I am creative in preparing and implementing therapy goals and materials for sess... ... middle of paper ... ...t writing to becoming more effective and efficient.
This class not only made me a better writer, but gave me the ability to more effectively share whatever it is I have to say in a way that can be received and understood, maybe even enjoyed. I now see why this class is required and how it will help every student prepare for whatever it is they go on to do. UWrite1104 was not just a class I needs to fill for credit hours, but a class that gave me life skills that I will continue to use throughout my
I know I could use some improvement, but being able to have my own personal learning theory has helped me out a lot. Because of my personal learning theory, I have gotten far with education. To be an effective teacher they have to consider different learning styles for their students. For teachers to do this, they first have to understand that each student has a different way in learning. Once the teacher can figure that out he or she will be more productive in the classroom and use a strategy that works well for all students.
I will focus more in the skills such as listening and eye contact. I believe that the more I will be better at these skills, more I would be helpful to others. The listening skills would help me to understand the problems and find the most appropriate way to solve them. So, in order to improve my listening skills, I will make sure that I follow the peer advice and always keep an eye contact with every person I am communicating, specially while listening to them. On the other hand, I will work more and more on my listening skills to polish them and to use them effectively, when required.
I also will be talking about how I grow throughout the class. The first topic we learned about what are the goals of a Career and Work Counsellor? Well the goal of Career and Work Counsellor is to help the client understand his/her responsibility and helping them make their own decisions. What does a Career and Work Counselling do, is to help their clients find the skills they have and help them find a job that fits those she skill... ... middle of paper ... ...could be and some I am not but I think learning them is great and it could help be a better counsellor. Overall as a counsellor I think there are many other things, I have to learn and improve on.
One of the strongest beliefs which I cling to with regards to teaching is that, teaching never stops and a teacher must always possess the same eagerness as a student. Through several interactions with other teachers, I always strive for new ideas, techniques, teaching styles and strategies that I might add to my pedagogical knowledge. Furthermore, through personal reflection, feedback and evaluation... ... middle of paper ... ...ng than in the content of their conclusion. Following these simple guidelines and objectives, I am able to plan engaging and stimulating lessons that not only motivate the students but are also meaningful to their personal and academic development. Indeed, involving the students in the learning process can only enhance learning and self-development.
Working with patients provides me with great professional and personal gratification, and because of that I feel a strong connection to the population I serve. After closely studying the coursework offered by the MPH program at the University at Albany, I am empowered with the essential tools to address important public health issues nationally and globally. I am excited to pursue Internal Medicine because it is a field closely aligned with my passion for forging a deeper level of primary care for the patient. I am better prepared to pursue this path than I have ever been in my life. My goal is a life of clinical practice and research to close the gap between the known and unknown, in disease prevention and treatment.
I became a more organized thinker, writer, and student, driving me to better myself as an educator. Developing analogies and providing examples led students to discover information themselves, while deepening my understanding of the course material as well. In addition to learning more, I became better at quickly mastering any subject. For example, I learned to
