Reflection Two: The Course Review

Reflection Two – The Course Plan Review For a couple of years I have dreamed of conducting an online course for job seekers. When I was an intern I created a guide and most recently I created a course plan and directions for one session out of this imaginary course. My work as a novice as my instructor has pointed out is a “good start (McKenzie-White, 2015, assignment feedback)” Going forward with this review it is important to imagine that I am taking steps to implement this online course for job seekers of the 21st century as a novice instructional designer. The first managerial decision is the choice of platform. I have a CourseSite account. This would be my choice. My next task to ensure a smooth launch prior to an invitation to job …show more content…
One area needing great attention are the course objectives. Those need to be rewritten and I need to do some more pondering.

So my instruction is helping job seekers explore, synthesize and resolve their problem of unemployment. My challenge going forward is to think about these end results and rewrite my objectives utilizing Bloom’s so that my job seekers will understand clearly how to proceed and produce results. I have some important components required and others are missing. Once again using the Anderson model (2008) the chart below highlights what would work and what was omitted according to the Future Professors (2015) and Anderson (Wilcoxon,

    Fidelity of implementation is critical in improving student-learning outcomes. In order to grow from our mistakes, we need conscience data that will inform our decision process. I currently sit on the SRBI team at Westside Middle School and one of the greatest disconnects we have noticed is that teachers are not always connecting their daily lesson planning to SRBI. Let’s say, hypothetically I was appointed as a central office administrator and charged with improving the SRBI process at the secondary level.

    For example, I learned to be a consumer of research in 590 and 611. This practice of critical evaluation will be essential as I move forward in my career and education, but it also can apply to everyday consumption of controversial reporting, evaluation of political debates, or assessment of a new proposal at work. I learned both hard skills, like the ability to use instructional technology, and soft skills, like communication with stakeholders and subject matter experts. I take away from this program an understanding of methods for designing instruction, from secondary curriculum to user experience to performance improvement, the necessary skills to help contribute on a team, and lifelong critical thinking…

Along with that, I got the important messages regarding a good research must be researchable where it able to apply in past with the current issue and it must be interesting so that the readers does not get bored. I noticed the problems in the research must be explained and an appropriate research design must be chosen. Reliability and validity of the research also is very important so that the findings can be accurate and the limitation of research must be stated. Besides, I also learnt to differential the conceptual framework which is an analytical tool with several variations and contexts used to make conceptual distinctions and organize ideas while for the theoretical framework which is the structure that can hold or support a theory of a research study.…
