This is a graded discussion: 3 points possible
due Jan 18, 2018
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
|Professional Development: Learning in the Workplace|
Prior to beginning this discussion, read the following required articles:
- “Organizational Learning in Target Setting”
- “Organizational Learning and Learning Organizations: An Integrative Framework”
- “Improving Organizational Learning Through Leadership Training”
- “Systematic Professional Development Training and Its Impact on Teachers’ Attitudes Toward ELLs: SIOP and Guided Coaching”
- “Review of Organizational Resilience: How Learning Sustains Organizations in Crisis, Disaster, and Breakdowns”
For this discussion, you will be focusing on your self-development and your learning experiences in the context of the workplace. In your initial post, apply basic research methods and the alignment of content within research to the questions below by making connections between your personal experiences and the content from the readings. You might also utilize other peer-reviewed articles of interest to you to support your assertions and conclusions. Analyze how your personal development in the learning and cognition domains have matured and developed through your formative years and work experiences. Your writing should not simply answer each question; a fully developed personal analysis of your own growth and learning processes should be concise and well organized in a manner that exhibits your improved writing ability and reflects APA style format.
In addition to answering the questions below, include an introduction and conclusion to your post.
- What types of training and education have you received in the workplace?
- What do you do now that differs from your past educational learning experiences?
- How have your life experiences affected your learning?
- Have events in your life influenced your beliefs and how you assert yourself in the learning process?
- How do you see yourself as a life-long learner?
Next, consider how organizational learning and culture affect you personally and apply skeptical inquiry to the resolution of problems related to your own learning and cognition. How might you adjust your current strategies? Finally, apply ethical principles and professional standards of learning and cognition psychology that you have learned about to teaching or counseling others in the workplace. What implications should you consider when working with others?
This discussion should be approximately 500 words in length and should establish your understanding of the content, apply appropriate methods of ethical practices, and exhibit appropriate scaffolding of personal experience to the week’s content.
Guided Response: Review several of your colleague’s posts and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful interactive discourse. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) on Day 7 of the week and respond to anyone who replies to your initial post. Peer responses may vary in length but should be detailed and thought provoking. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
Did your peer choose differing areas of interest? Does your peer’s explanation of the theoretical perspectives assist you in understanding the content more clearly? Share a personal experience that aligns with one of your peer’s perspectives or explanations about learning and reading acquisition.
