ASSIGNMENT

1. I need to develop a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation that provides an overview of two assigned theories. Each theory will include a discussion of the following:

1) Overview
2) Scope/application
3) Major tenets/principles
4) Example (of application)
5) References

The presentation includes speaker notes to expand on the bulleted slide contents. All references will be on one slide following the individual's content presentation. Citations must be included in the speaker notes, a title slide including the name of each team member and the title of the presentation. Style/Format: Professional and graduate-level, APA, grammar, spelling, etc.

I need resources & suggestions. Thanks.

RESPONSE:

The assignment instructions provide excellent direction. It tells you to include the five areas for two theories (overview, scope, etc.). I also provided an illustrative example of constructivism below (using Piaget's theory of Constructivism) that uses the above heading (e.g., overview, scope/application etc.). The references are to be listed on the last slide in APA format. The title slide will include your name and your team member's name as illustrated in the example below.

Example: Title Slide:

Learning Theories: Behaviorism and Constructivism

Yourname (names centered)
Team member1's name
Team member 2, name
Team member 3, name

Now for the resources that you have asked for to get you started. I have indeed located a wealth of resources to get you started.

Have you given some thought to the two theories that you want to use? Learning theories tend to fall into one of several perspectives or paradigms, including behaviorism, cognitivism, constructivism, and others. The following links provide this information on three learning theories, which you can choose from (also see the attached resource for an excellent overview of each theory: Learning Theory Paradigms.doc), which you can use for both the PowerPoint and the notes.

As mentioned above, I also provided an illustrate example of constructivism (Piaget), using the above heading (e.g., overview, scope/application etc.). The suggested websites taken together provide enough information for you to complete an overview, scope/application and major tenets/principles of two theories, together with the notes. A good way to do this is to use the information from the websites, make points for your PowerPoint, and then go back and use this information for the notes (putting it into point form too, for organization and easy following). Then, as directed in the assignment instructions, reference the ...

Solution Summary

This provides resources and suggestions for a presentation on two learning theories. To use as exemplars, it also provides links to Powerpoint presentations on learning theories and extra resources on learning theories for further research.

Personality Development Theory, Online Studies & Presentation of Self

1. Do you think that a person's identity becomes fixed in adolescence or is our identity (our idea of who we are) something that changes and develops throughout our life? What makes you think the way you do? How does this compare to Erikson's idea of life long stages? Can people make major and dramatic changes of who they are in middle age? What sorts of events might contribute to major changes in identity in middle age? How does your observation of your own life and people you know compare with Erikson's idea of what happens in middle age versus young adulthood? What about when we form intimate relationships? Must we do that in our twenties or can that happen at other stages of our life? How does your observation of people today and their life patterns compare to Erikson's stages? What happens to people's intimate relationships (such as marriage) when they go through a major life change (such as changing jobs, being laid off, going back to school, becoming disabled, and so forth)? Do you think that we can describe the development of all adults in the U.S. today in one simple set of stages like those Erikson described? Why or why not?

2. What advantages are there to students (or at least some students) of making an entire college degree available on-line as this school has done? What advantages (in addition to the one mentioned above) are there to the colleges of using the principles of McDonaldization to develop a uniform and standardized set of distance learning courses? (Be sure to demonstrate that you know what the principles of McDonaldization are). Given your experience to the present time with distance learning what disadvantages do you see to distance learning courses compared to those based on a more traditional classroom. (For your comparison, include as distance learning not only this course but also any satellite courses, interactive TV or compressed video courses, KET or other telecourses, as well as Internet or web-based courses you've taken). What disadvantages, if any, do you see a person having who gets their college degree through distance learning? Are there any courses that you think just can't or shouldn't be taught through distance learning? Why or why not? What would you tell an employer who was concerned about whether distance learning students were acquiring the same quality of education? What do you think should be done to assure quality of education (for classroom or distance learning)? In summation, do you think that distance learning is a good way for community colleges to help students deal with role conflicts? (Compare your views to others through the class discussion board)

3. What are the main tips (do's and don'ts) for behavior, dress, and general presentation of self in an employment interview? Be as complete as you can in giving a guide for job interviews. Discuss Goffman's ideas about "presentation of self" and discuss how much of this involves playing a "role" that is quite different from how one "normally" behaves? Be specific and give examples. In the attempt to create a positive impression and get hired what sorts of things is it all right to hide or cover over? (For example, if you are bald is it okay to cover your baldness with a toupee or wig? If you were once arrested, but found not guilty do you need to reveal that? ) What things about ourselves do we have a right to keep private and not reveal to the interviewer? What types of things is it NOT okay to hide? (You should check out what the websites say about the things employers cannot legally ask about) Explain and give examples for each question. Legal issues aside what sorts of things are it morally and ethically acceptable to embellish upon and what must always be the plain "unvarnished" truth?
