In the case for presentation, just like mentioned above, I will make sure that I be well prepared before any final presentation, make a better slide which looks professional, do a proper research, and increase my confidence level with a lot of rehearsing time before the presentation. Through the feedback from Problem Solving from IT, I realized that missing classes makes a big difference and thus I don't plan on missing any of my future classes unless it is absolutely necessary. I also plan on becoming more communicative in the future classes because staying passive in the class and just listening to the lecturer is not enough. Raising questions after questions until I get the concept of the topic being taught is what I plan on doing. Lastly, making more time for reviewing the things taught on the class is one of the main task I plan on doing. The things I learn in the class, I need to review it at least once when I get home and also look for the slides of the next

    I always felt I was at a disadvantage in this field because I did not know the educational theories and theorists, which pushed me to improve my understanding by enrolling in this degree program. The knowledge I gained the last two years and its application to working as an instructional designer are great, but I also value the confidence it has instilled in me. I also learned valuable multidisciplinary skills in the IDT program. Each class taught me essential skills for discrete aspects of instructional design, but also critical skills I can use beyond work projects. For example, I learned to be a consumer of research in 590 and 611.…

    But while I have spent countless hours learning how to build RESTFul on StackOverflow, I want to expand my knowledge beyond programming.

    I hope that I will get more opportunities in learning how to reach more content areas across the curriculum, so I will have a solid foundation when I bring it into my classroom. One thing I struggle with is using multiple TEKS to one lesson. I really hope that I will be provided with practice in the classroom so when I am a teacher it will not be such a struggle. Once I am finished student teaching, I plan to devote my first year of teaching to finding effective lessons that can easily be accessed again throughout the year. I felt that it helped the students when their mind was constantly reminded of what they previously learned.…

    Regarding a subject I have trouble with, step by step hands on demonstrations work better for me; listening and visualizing helps me catch on to the topic or demonstration more then reading or listening while learning. My learning style shows how much more consideration I need to have on educating myself on how to adapt to other types of learning styles, not only to feel more comfortable with other sorts but to also avoid difficulty learning. In the Noel Levitz assessment I learned things that I never thought I would be scored on, such as “use of technology”, this was one of my highest scores on the Academic Motivation section of the survey, one that I never thought would be one of my highest scores since I’ve never pictured myself frequently working on a computer in my future career. The VARK assessment really helped me point out the type of learner I am and also showed me different ways I could try to utilize while…

    I expect to use professional communication at all times and always be in the loop with teachers, so I can always have a solution to a problem or if I have a question about something. Students need to know why it is important to learn what I am teaching them and how it can empower their education. I will get better at communicating with parents and staff because I will constantly be providing feedback about students and myself to them. Conducting conferences with students and the school’s staff will mold me into a master teacher as the years come by. My mentor tells me that without communication there would be gaps and that is not a good aspect of your teaching path.…

    This approach is very effective with my students. They need to firmly understand a concept before it becomes more difficult. They benefit from topical sequencing as opposed to spiral because with spiral, skills are touched on here and there and eventually become more complex. With my current students, they need a concept to be fully developed before moving to a new concept. I am noticing that more and more with math.…
