Peter Elbow’s essay centers on different ways to examine claims in life. Specifically, Elbow describes two different methods, or “games,” to examine claims: the doubting game and the believing game.
I believe that a good teacher should incorporate more that just academic issues. There also needs to be a great deal of learning
With this lesson, we begin a new unit on epistemology, which is the philosophical study of knowledge claims. In this first lesson on epistemology, we begin by examining the question “What do we mean when we say we know something?” What exactly is knowledge? We will begin with a presentation that introduces the traditional definition of knowledge. Wood then discusses some of the basic issues raised in the study of epistemology and then presents an approach to epistemology that focuses on obtaining the intellectual virtues, a point we will elaborate on in the next lesson.
In conclusion, it would help a student make an appropriate choice of a teacher and their course if a student were offered a description or outside opinions. Many learn by different ways and if a description of how the teacher taught could help a student learn faster and understand the course a lot better. It would help him or her know if they have similar interest to the teacher of specific
This was by far the most challenging course that I have encountered while obtaining my Master’s Degree in Educational Technology from UCMO. That is not a negative comment as this course has actually impacted me professionally more than any other course I’ve taken to date. This course has taken more time to complete the assignments, more of my attention to detail, and more of my creativity. The last point was the best part about this course. I consider myself to be fairly creative and this course definitely allowed me to do that while bringing my somewhat odd personality to a professional forum. For this I am grateful. Let’s get to the good stuff, shall we?
In monitoring my behavior, I will buy a calendar and a journal and write an X on everyday of the calendar in which I accomplished my scheduled time of sleep. In the journal, I will record what I did wrong on the days I didn’t accomplish the task of sleeping at the scheduled time. I will buy the calendar this weekend and I already have a journal. I will begin this plan at the same time I begin having a timer for my scheduled bed time which is on July 17th. A reward for this intention will be a record of all the calendars I’ve used in reaching this goal, it’ll show how far I’ve come.
By completing the interest survey, I felt in the position of a student: to have to think on unusual things and understand that they are part of who I am. I realized that I could know a bit more about me. I learned about my favorite food and my favorite singer, which are different from 10 years ago.
First, I skim the chapter, resting on big ideas that are new, complex, and/or especially confusing, and speeding through things I quickly understand--just getting the gist of things. Sometimes I jot down things if I feel compelled to; sometimes I don’t. If there were any homework problems or quizzes I don’t feel 100% confident on, I redo them until I feel comfortable. I ask the teacher any the questions I have. I read the chapter again, but this time I usually draw some diagrams and come up with funny pictures or mnemonic devices that can give me some shortcuts.
Lecture Question 1: The term attention requires several different processes including different kinds of behaviors and tasks in order to function properly. Attention comes from our cognitive processing systems and gives us the opportunity to select what information we want to process at any time. For example, when I’m looking through the lecture notes for this week, my attention has to be on what new information I’m reading about so that I can store the information and then use it to complete my homework. However, I cannot remember everything that is talked about in lecture, therefore I have to take notes down that way I can look back at them to remind myself of the new information I learned.
Preference, discussion and feedback are important, because different students have diverse opinions, backgrounds, fears, perspectives, expectations and questions. Eventually, more discussions and feedback allow more understanding for both instructor and learner. They actually allow the instructor to evaluate students. Sometimes the questions asked are more towards an insight or a goal the student or the instructor is trying to reach. For
Assignment from Sylabus: Prepare a 2-3 page narrative of your HR integaration project to explain you approach to the project’s sponsor, Hugh McCauley.
Throughout this semester we read numerus of text relating to this semester enduring question “what do we know, and how can we know our understanding is reliable?” with this question in hand I would like to us two text to explore this question. The first text being “In the Grove,” by Akutagawa the second text being “The Return of Martin Guerre” by Natalie Zemon Davis. Both books have multiple people telling multiple stories hence what do we know and how do we know what is true form who is telling us these things. The different tales we hear in both stories exemplifies different methods for pursing knowledge.
It would be better if the teacher is able to find common topics to chat with the students. This would let the students feel like they can relate better to the teacher.
Knowledge is defined to be facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education. There are two categories that fall under knowledge; personal knowledge and shared knowledge. Shared knowledge refers to what “we know because.” It can also be defined as communicated and constructed knowledge; within culture, social norms, and semiotics. Personal knowledge refers to “I know because.” An expanded definition of personal knowledge refers to personal experiences, values, and perceptions. Shared knowledge changes and evolves over time because of methods that are continuously shared. It is assembled by a group of people. Personal knowledge, on the other hand, depends crucially on the experiences of a particular individual. It is gained
Knowledge is a high level of understanding of things (C. Dawson, 2009). It is the use of information obtained from data in understanding ‘why’ or ‘how’ certain things happen. Even though it reflects a personal interpretation of what is obtained from information, knowledge in the world can be seen in books, journals, models, theories and concepts. Adding to
