Discuss about the Psychology for Attributes in our Daily Lives.
Reflective Assessment for Online Learning Based on the Weekly Activities
We learn through observing the surrounded environment (Dabbagh & Kitsantas, 2012). Whether it is the corporate settings or any personal community, we have been learning the diversified attributes in our daily lives. Similarly, this report will be discussing the reflection on the learning assessments related to the weekly activities. In a workplace, we have to work with our colleagues and other staffs. The major attribute that I learned during the coursework was the effective communicational process. The workplace is mostly surrounded with the people of diversified cultures (Yusuf & Zain, 2014). While communicating with other colleagues, I found the language differences as well as the diversified attributes. I have learned a set of traits that are beneficial for my future career.
At the initial stage, everyone needs to recognise the potential attributes or the learning skills, knowledge, and attributes. While working in a corporate setting, I need to be knowledgeable enough regarding my responsibilities. However, I have noticed the major attribute that I need to maintain while working with other colleagues is the efficient communication skills. We work in a setting where we have to deal with people of diversified cultures and languages. Hence, if I need to be successful, I need to concentrate on several specified skills that are fruitful for my career. A strong communicational skill is effective enough for me to understand the working attributes. I even need to pay attention towards my emotional intelligence skills to understand the basic needs and requirements of the workplace environment. Another major attribute that I need to adopt is the efficient focus skill. If I can focus on a purposive value, it would enhance my knowledge in the corporate field. It is important to mention that while working within an organisation, I have to acquire the skills of working with team. Hence, the teamwork skill is very significant in terms of developing the career (Gallie et al. 2012). While working in a team, I can gather knowledge about several technicalities and the professional attributes from my colleagues. It is determining the growth of my career skills. Apart from all these skills, I need to concentrate on my balancing power for facing the uncertain situations. I require using my flexible thinking to deal with different situations.
Both the digital learning and the other learning contexts include the pros and cons. If we take the face to face learning into consideration, we can find that it is much easier to communicate with our teachers and other associates. However, in case of the digital learning we are unable to express our thoughts that may arise during the course study. The difference between these two learning processes is much prominent. In case of communication, I can imply that the digital learning process is available through chat forums, video sharing, uploads, and downloads. However, whereas we can communicate directly with our teachers or professors and share our feelings, the chances are less in the digital process (Phillip & Cain, 2015). On the contrary, if we concentrate on the effectiveness of digital learning process, we can ensure that it is accessible to us 24*7. Moreover, we can get more information through different internet sources. However, the personal experiences are always better to derive knowledge about the real scenario.
If I concentrate on my learning materials, I need to focus on the informative sources, which are helpful for enhancing my knowledge. I have used many of the informational websites, e-books, peer reviewed journals, academic papers, and social media sites. People assemble their experiences through their writing in such sources. Hence, obtaining the idea from these sources is helpful for my learning skills. I have found that if I can assemble my extensive knowledge gathered from these sources, I can review them on daily basis and improve my personal and professional skills. It is important for me to collect the information that is relevant and credible. The information should demonstrate the purpose of my study and the areas of interests. While structuring the ideas received from different theories, the comparison between the real scenarios with the virtual world becomes clear to me. However, it is important to search for the authentic and verified sources. If I collect the relevant ideas from these sources, it would be beneficial for me to incorporate my knowledgeable skills with the gathered information. Hence, I do not depend only on the lecture notes and prefer to gather more information from other sources as well. At the end of the learning session, I review these documented skills for improving my professional and personal attributes.
