i have attached more info. about my course
– Due On sunday 9th -You have 15 hours from now
To assess your ability to reflect on your experiences in this course and explain what you have learned.
Do you think you learn from experience? Think again. According to Jeff Hurt (2014) and others, experience is not the key to learning. You only learn from reflecting on experience. There is a big difference between the two. And you know what? Neuroscience backs that up (see, for example, Doyle and Zakrajsek, 2013).
You have spent 12 weeks on this course. What have you learned? In this assignment, you will take time to reflect in a systematic way on what you have gleaned from this course and what you will still get out of it.
Thiagi offered a six-phase model for reflection (Hurt, 2014). The model is typically used after a learning activity, but we will use it for reflecting on what you have learned during the course.
Thiagi’s six-phase model for debriefing questions is as follows:
· How do you feel?
· What happened?
· What did you learn?
· How does this relate to the real world?
· What if?
· What next?

1. Think about each module of the course and what you have learned.
2. In a Microsoft Word document, respond to each one of Thiagi’s debriefing questions about the course. Don’t treat this as a quick checklist. Take your time (suggestion: about 30–60 minutes per question, even over a few days). Rushed responses betray the writer. Be specific as you answer the following:
a. How do you feel? (Explain how you feel about your experience in the course, your progress, etc. Tie your feelings to specific assignments, events, interactions, readings, and/or a culmination of them. But be specific.)
b. What happened? (Recall and describe overall what happened for you in the course.)
c. What did you learn? (Tell what you learned, not just what was in the text. Also talk about lessons you learned beyond the stated course outcomes.)
d. How does this relate to the real world?
e. What if? (Briefly describe how your new knowledge and skill could have served you and others in a different situation. What difference would it have made?)
f. What next? (What will you do to use this knowledge and these skills? What’s your plan? This question isn’t a prompt for a simple wish list. Be specific about what you’ll do, why you’ll do it, and how you’ll do it.)
3. Include references, if any, in APA style.
4. We encourage you to first write down answers to the questions without trying to get your paper “perfect.” Just let the thoughts flow. Then come back in a day or two and revisit your answers, finish your reflections, and check for spelling, grammar, and flow. You may also wish to focus on one question and let some time pass before moving on to the next question. However you approach it, we encourage getting some ideas down and letting your work sit for at least a day. Then revisit it and finish up.
