My learning experience in this course
This course has taught me some valuable lessons of intellectual capital (IC) and the benefits my organization has received from it over the years. For instance, in my department, my co-workers have given the organization great praise for the training and the wealth of knowledge they have gained from the many educational classes HR have conducted. I further learn that IC in every cross section of my organization has increased the retention of employees. Another learning experience that I gain from IC is the increase level of every employee’s skill and their capability of solving or providing solution to customer’s problem.
I further understand that in order for my organization to achieve long lasting change, leaders embrace a commitment to learning for not just themselves, but also the organizations. They have made significant strides in establishing a philosophy that further individual development through the institutional, experiential, and personal development constructs. This philosophy has influenced individual development from the early stages of their career to retirement; because, the organization realize that additional benefits further develop a philosophy of long-term learning for the organizations. For example, Senge recognizes the linkage of individual and organizational development in his statement, “Individual learning does not guarantee organizational learning. But without it, no organizational learning occurs” Senge,

I started writing my first real essay in the Eighth grade, and I never knew why I was given such an awful task. I am a terrible English/Writing scholar and I never could comprehend the concept of writing. I put a lot of work and heart into my first essay, but that still didn’t get me the grade that I wanted. Needless to say I got a “D” on the essay. I was extremely disappointed in the grade I made and I wanted to reject writing all together, but that is not the kind of scholar I am, so I began my journey during my Eighth grade year to become a better writer. I had many academic goals that year, but my main goal was to excel on the English state writing test at the end of the year. The test would determine if I moved on to ninth grade English or if I would get placed in a pre-high school English program. To achieve my goals I knew that I was going to have to work hard not only on developing the papers I write, but also making sure they are grammatically correct, interesting, and that each story or essay gets the main point across as well.
How are you doing? This is Will, the tall black guy you would sometimes see in service. I'm writing to say goodbye. My project in Carson City came to an end and I've moved back to Texas. Thank you so much for making me feel at home at Hope. Your messages kept me going while I was in Reno. God used your words to truly bless me and also show me where I need to improve. Sorry I didn't get a chance to say goodbye in person, but everything happened so fast.
Going to college can be a very rewarding experience for a traditional, or non-traditional student who wants to go back to school. More money on a paycheck can be a reason why someone would want to presume their education. Another reason why someone would want to go on to college would be to increase their intellect so they can be more sophisticated in life. Someone might also want to further their education because college teaches your life skills. A college education can be very rewarding for a traditional or nontraditional student by making more money, more intellect, and learning life skills for the world.
A decade or two ago, a college education was considered more so a privilege rather than a choice. Today, our society takes education for granted by opting out of it because of the expenses, the stress and many other reasons that comes with going to school. Is a college education still worth having? Arguments will continually arise that it is no longer needed to be successful in today’s world. However, research and statistics continually prove that having one will remain far more beneficial than not earning one. Your time in college is the prime time for you to explore your options, make lifelong connections, and discover your strengths and weaknesses while working to earn something that will give you the feeling of pride. Life after college is significantly better for college graduates because they attract high paying employers which in turn will help earn a higher income, not to mention the added perks that will provide security and satisfaction in life. Above all those reasons, getting an education is an example and a legacy you can pass on to your children.
At the very beginning, of when hearing about First Year Experience I was indifferent about going. I knew that if I attended FYE then I would not get my summer after my high school career. Instead, I would graduate high school and then enter school again, but sooner than others. I do wish I had a long summer before entering school again, yet living in the experience now changes my whole outlook of entering college early. There are the good times, bad times, stressful times, and the sad times. One just has to take it all in and try their best to process what happens. I, myself, has done that, and still am doing, since starting the summer program. And with every decision I make, they’re either a benefit or a toll on my body both physically and mentally.
With over half of my internship completed, I am eager and proud to review the progress I’ve achieved, so far, toward my learning and experience goals. Concerning bullet A, I have gained a greater understanding of storm water pollution and our regional watershed though my experiences distributing and installing outreach materials and signs. At a couple of outreach events held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, my general knowledge of pollution and our watershed was communicated to the public at a very professional level, which improved my confidence for outreach. Bullets B and C match well to my personal strengths, and once given the experience of working with CSP volunteers, SAC and SCYEC I was able to
I would like to commence this speech by saying that we have all been truly blessed in being given the opportunity to celebrate our graduation with each other in such a manner. Being able to spend our final moments as a class in such an important place is wonderful, and before I delve further into this speech, I want to thank the man who allowed us to graduate from the church, Father Jenik. He’s a great preacher, a charitable bishop, and most importantly, he is a great man.
Congratulations to my fellow graduates and their parents and guardians. The only way out is through and we did it. I am proudly standing here as valedictorian of the first graduating class here at Humanities III. Before I begin, I would like to offer specials thanks to the staff and faculty who have journeyed along with us and kept our heads on straight, especially those who have stuck by us for these past four years.
After living at Syracuse University for the first semester I have done things both inside and outside of my comfort zone as I have adjusted to life as a college student. I used to cheerlead throughout high school for both the basketball and football seasons, so attending my first football game in the Dome was something I easily crossed off my checklist within the first week of being a college student. From freshman year to senior year of high school, I had attended every single football and basketball game, whether I wanted to be there or not. As a member of the varsity cheer team, at every single game I cheered on my school and learned the basics of each sport. The second I received my acceptance letter in the mail, I asked my parents to purchase me the season tickets for all of the Syracuse football and basketball games. Although I do not necessarily love all sports, the idea of going to every football and basketball game was a goal of mine to show my school pride and get the full experience of college. One of my requirements when searching for the right college for me was a lot of school spirit and sports, along with educational requirements, all of which Syracuse fulfilled.
“I always thought I would sink so I never swam”, but Peirce showed me that I wouldn't sink. My eight years at Peirce is something I will never forget. Something that I’ll think about if I’m ever down. Something that makes me realize that I can do it, and I will, because my success is up to me, and only me. Over the years I have learned such an immense amount that it’s hard to even begin. My time here left me with so much more experience and skill that if you were to tell me eight years ago how amazing and supportive everyone is to help you succeed, I wouldn’t believe you. Everyone staff member, every student, everyone wants you to do your best. We are a community of supporters, and that's the best kind of community. Together everyone has grown and grown and there is still much more to come, but I’m sure everyone one of us graduating class of 2017 will be ready for it.
In the United States, the outlook for recent college graduates seems bleak. In 2014, graduates left college with both a degree and an average of $28,950 in student loan debt (“Survey of the States” 1). In addition, over half of all millennials are having trouble saving for the future and seventy five percent were unaware of late payment charges on their credit cards (ibid). All of this builds up into the current situation in the United States, where collectively, college graduates have over one trillion dollars in debt, the second largest debt category (ibid). Now, the spending and saving of money starts at an earlier age than ever before. Students fresh out of high school are being asked to make thousand dollar investments in the
This class, UWP 104FY, has lead me to realize the areas I struggle in and how I overcame those struggles. When I entered this class, I lacked practice with writing and was unable to adjust my habits to accommodate the flow of this course. I had not written an essay, except for research papers, since my fall quarter of freshman year. It was especially hard for me to adjust my time to account for all the activities in the class. Since the course is a hybrid course, I only had one face-to-face meeting with the class. Half of the class requires self-pace and constant checking of what needed to be accomplished. With my initial abilities, I was unable to excel in the course. However, as the course progressed, I was able to change some of my
English class seemed to be the most dreadful to take within school. Writing essays for most of my grade in a class is not what I was looking forward too. When I entered college I knew that it would be one of many challenging classes I would have to take. Starting from the lowest English class to moving on up, the writing assignments became longer and more thought out. The time came when I got into this class that I knew more work was going to have to be put into essays and thus brought out what I had not seen before in my work progress.
Learning organizations are featured by aggregated employee engagement in a process of shared handling, cooperatively responsible change directed towards mutual values or principles (Watkins and Marsick, 1992). From theses definitions we see that for learning organizations to be successful there must be a modification in behavior, learning in itself is a change process for enhancement to adapt with various external environment forces. we can also presume that a company must appraise and exploit internal resource to produce and sustain competitive advantages.
