Through organisational studies I would acquire a deeper understanding of human behaviour as it relates to workplaces and a solid grounding in research methodologies needed to inform strategic goals. Qualifications in Psychology and Organisational Studies will allow me to pursue my professional goal, which is to continue working with organisations to solve business problems. As an Organisational Psychologist I will be equipped to do this at strategic level.

And also about the idea of note taking, references, skills development, character build up and many small mistakes which I have done during my past regarding learning and studying.

Instead of beating myself up and blaming the test, the professor, or the course for my performance on an exam, I would own up to my performance and think about how my study habits or techniques might have affected that score

I guess the main takeaway of this story is that there are so many useful academic resources at UCLA, and it is up to us students to take advantage of them as much as possible.

100 Days of A11y

As we’ve learned in Accessibility Principles for ICT, we can apply universal design to fields outside of architecture and web products. CAST, a nonprofit education research and development organization, built up the field of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a educational framework of principles, guidelines, and checkpoints that works towards one goal: create expert learners who are:

  • purposeful,
  • motivated,
  • resourceful,
  • knowledgeable,
  • strategic, and
  • goal-directed.

What are the principles of universal design for learning?

There are 3 principles of UDL. Each principle has 3 guidelines. Each guideline has a list of checkpoints.

  1. Provide multiple means of representation: Recognition Networks, the “What” of learning.
    1. Perception:
      1. Offer ways of customizing the display of information.
      2. Offer alternatives for auditory information.
      3. Offer alternatives for visual information.
    2. Language & symbols:
      1. Clarify vocabulary and symbols.

The Learning Renaissance

Working in schools, I found that I was able to come to a provisional understanding of the culture driving the school simply in the walk from the reception to the Head Teacher’s office. The interactions I heard between staff and students told me most of what I needed to know about which forces were driving the school.

In that short walk I’ve heard apoplectic teachers screaming at students, teachers indifferent to students talking to them and teachers for whom serving the needs of the individual student are clearly paramount. No extensive evidence base is more informative of the ruling culture in a school than the simple interactions students and teachers have on the corridor.

I don’t think enough work goes into ensuring that students receive a consistent and nurturing experience throughout the school day and it is in these inconsistencies that poor behaviour manifests itself.
