My meeting with Betsy went very well today! I enjoyed talking about my different goals and what I can do to achieve them. I actually learned a lot from this meeting today. I was never informed of the free tutoring until Betsy had told me about it. I always thought people had to pay for tutoring and only athletes received it for free. I will definitely use this tool to my full advantage. It will help me a lot next semester because my schedule is packed with six classes. I am worried that I will have a lot of stress next semester, but Betsy ensured me that there are many resources available to ease the stress. Also, I think I will take some requirement classes at my local community college during summer. The cost will be cheaper and the credits can transfer. The business school has many requirements so by taking a class or two over the summer, I can knock out some credits out of the way.

From this meeting, I also decided to do something different next semester. I will make sure I visit my professors during office hours. Betsy told me that going to office hours and making sure professors know whom you are will have such a great benefit. She shared her own personal experience with how her grade went from an A- to an A by building a relationship with her professor. I never really knew how much of an impact going to office hours would make until today. Although it does depend on the professor of course, I learned that most of them will bump up your grade is you’re borderline. I will make sure to build a relationship with my professors next semester by visiting them during office hours so they know who I am.
Overall, I had a lot of fun chatting with Betsy during the meeting. It didn’t even feel like a meeting at all, but more like just chitchatting with a friend. I didn’t think I would gain so much information in an hour that will be very useful. I am glad that I got to…...

...Reflection Paper in our Group Activity As a leader for the group I was chosen because they said that a member with vast experiences about the topic made most of the decisions and disturbed work among to our group. There was no disagreement during our group meetings. There were no arguments about the workload. The group member assumed that everyone was on the same level. Each member needed to do extra research for our activity was to be done properly.  The group work as a team, several suggestions were made by the each and some of them were adopted. The group was selective in adopting new ideas. The group worked well, agreements were reached on almost all issues but little new information was gained by all members. I believe that group work was an ideal method for quick information gathering. While working in the groups there are some barriers that we encountered. It is not easy for us to communicate all the time, because some member of our group is not available because of some personal matters. But I see to it that every time that we have an activity that we need to past or to present, I’ll always remind them to do their part and always update them by giving some information about the topic. Technologies help us to communicate easily, by sending text messages, sending email and through our Facebook. It also helps us to gather some information that we need, to enhance our idea and to present our group presentation on time. By this I could proudly say that......

Reflection

...1 Reflection Reflection is an everyday process. We reflect on a range of everyday problems and situations all the time: What went well? What didn’t? Why? How do I feel about it? We don’t usually follow a formula for this, it just happens as feelings, thoughts and emotions about something gradually ‘surface’. We might choose to do something differently, or not, as a result of reflecting, but reflection is essentially a kind of loose processing of thoughts and feelings about an incident, a meeting, a day – any event or experience at all. Reflection can be a more structured way of processing in order to deal with a problem. This type of reflection may take place when we have had time to stand back from something, or talk it through, as in: ‘On reflection, I think you might be right’, or ‘On second thoughts, I realised he was more upset than me.’ Structured reflection If we consciously reflect, maybe as part of our work or family role, there tends to be a rough process of ‘How did it go? What went well? Why? What didn’t? Why? What next?’ Examples might be of a football coach reflecting after a match, a teacher reflecting on a lesson, or simply a parent thinking about how best to deal with a teenager. In this kind of reflection, the aim is to look carefully at what happened, sort out what is really going on and explore in depth, in order to improve, or change something for next time. This brief guide will look at what is meant by reflection, suggest forms of structured...

The Meeting

Notice of Meeting : To let everyone involved know that you are requesting a meeting for a particular reason, and give them the date, time and location for this. This is known as a 2.

Minutes : During the meeting itself, it is important that all points raised are noted so that a summary of the full meeting is recorded.

...Dan Elder Journal Reflections The flight to from Cedar Rapids to Chicago took me back to the many times I have flown from cedar rapids to embark on my many vacations I have had with my family. But it was different because I was not going with my parents I was going with a few friends and tons of new people I had not met yet. When I got to Chicago I got a better chance of meeting everyone and I knew I was going to be making some new friends right away. The flight to London was like nothing I have never done before because I have never had to fly for that long before and since I could not fall asleep it was a very long flight indeed. The in-flight dinners were a lot better than I thought they would be I was expecting something way worse and they actually were not bad at all to eat I was pleasantly surprised. The airport at Heathrow was really big and it was a surprise to me that we were driving on the left side of the road even though I knew they did that in England it still came as a surprise to actually see it in action. The second flight went by very quickly for me because I was so excited to get to Denmark. Some of the first things that I noticed when I got Denmark that was different were all the biking and walking everyone does. Also the fact that everything is more expensive in Europe as compared to the United States it came as a real shock to me but I should have realized that with all the taxes they have that it has to be. The McDonalds in Europe was also a surprise......

...videoconferencing and Web conferencing technologies. A June 2008 report issued by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative and the Climate Group estimated that up to 20 percent of business travel could be replaced by virtual meeting technology. A videoconference allows individuals at two or more locations to communicate through two-way video and audio transmissions at the same time. The critical feature of videoconferencing is the digital compression of audio and video streams by a device called a codec. Those streams are then divided into packets and transmitted over a network or the Internet. The technology has been plagued by poor audio and video performance in the past, usually related to the speed at which the streams were transmitted, and its cost was prohibitively high for all but the largest and most powerful corpora- tions. Most companies deemed videoconferencing as a poor substitute for face-to-face meetings. However, vast improvements in videoconferenc- ing and associated technologies have renewed interest in this way of working. Videoconferencing is now growing at an annual rate of 30 percent. Proponents of the technology claim that it does more than simply reduce costs. It allows for 'better' meetings as well: it's easier to meet with partners, suppliers, subsidiaries, and colleagues from within the office or around the world on a more frequent basis, which in most cases simply cannot be reason- ably......

...Reflection During the time in HRMN 302, there were many elements of communications that I was able to learn from during this class. Many pieces of organizational and effective communications methods were very evident throughout the text. It provide incite into many aspects of our every day lives. I learned during the time spent in this class that a person is able to communicate more ways that one. This communications class taught me how powerful written words and language can be when done properly. You can use your words, attitude, body language, behavior, and even the way you carry yourself on a day-to-day basis are how we communicate. By communicating what we learn and experiences we may had is just one way to express ourselves to the people around us. In the text when we covered chapter 11, pages 415- 444 (Mclean, 2010), in our textbook, it provided critical information on international communication. This included the ability to have effective communication when encountering people of other nationalities. I was able to learn a lot from this chapter of our text. When entering any situation especially a business setting, it can be extremely helpful to look in to the countries customs and cultures. This can aid in helping to communicate more effectively with people of other nationalities. Each and every culture can be different in many ways, to include their greetings. For example, in the Thai culture you place your two palms together in front of you, at the level......

Welcome to today meeting….. Is there any apologies? All: No. Chairman: Let’s look at the confirmation of minutes of previous meeting……. Any business arising from correspondence? All: No. Chairman: Who propose to confirm the minutes of the previous meeting? Hiek: Raised his hand. Chairman: Who propose to second? Joshua: Raised his hand. Chairman: So let’s start today’s meeting. Now I want to discuss about the subject regarding of the main library in Swinburne University. Currently, there are more than 20,000 students are studying in Swinburne university. Now, during the usual time, the opening hours of the library are from 8am to 5pm daily. Except during the examination period, the library is open for 24 hours daily for two weeks or otherwise the library is open from 8am to 5pm daily. As the library is a place for students to do revision, to study, to do assignment, discussion, to look for information and so on. So now that students have requested to extend the library’s opening hours till 12 midnight daily. However, if we were to extend the library opening hours, there will be not enough staff to maintain the extended opening hours. So others are suggesting that we hire part time students to cover the later hours with minimal full time staff. Moreover, some......

...Final reflection- SPCOM 111 1. Based on the readings and responses I was able to learn more about the design and delivery of speeches. These response assignments help me reflect on different types of concepts that we discussed about in class. The most important piece of information that I got out of the readings and response assignments was how to create a powerful speech. The beginning of the course really focused on what should be used in a speech and what shouldn’t. For example, the readings really helped me open my eyes on the topic of my audience. In order to give a well-designed speech I needed to be able to take into consideration my audience’s interests and how I was going to be able to motivate my audience to be interested in my topic. Not only did I learn about my audience through the readings but I also learnt more about myself as a speaker. The readings helped by giving me tips and suggestions on my design for my informative speech and also my team presentations. For example, the readings helped me through creating my design of my speech. The readings taught me to use nouns in my introduction when I am listing out all of my points that will be discussed throughout my speech. Also, the readings helped me to prepare for some of my team presentations as the content in the readings were used for our design of our presentation. The readings were quite useful as they were used to help us teach the class the content in the textbook. With that we were able to use...

Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings Reflections

...of life’s challenges. My experiences at my AA meetings have shown me that the program does indeed work. And most importantly people are accepted where they are and made to feel welcome. I was able to attend two Awakenings meetings in Plattsburgh. My first meeting I didn’t get to much interaction from others and things might have changed had I been able to stay through the end of the meeting. At my other meeting I was able to stay for the duration and I was able to interact with the group. I was able to see how a “newbie” would/could be turned away from an AA meeting. I met a lady in the meeting, whom I sat next to and she was able to introduce herself to help me feel at ease. However, throughout the meeting she took it upon herself to tell me about certain individuals in the group and picked apart pieces of others stories. I found this to be very offsetting, and I would hope that she didn’t do this on a regular basis. If I had been an alcoholic in crisis, I might have been pushed to go and drink more by this lady. I believe in her heart she meant well, just the method in which she went about it was wrong. Other parts of the meetings involved participation from the groups. I thought this to be good to make everyone feel a part of the tgroup. If you did not want to read or participate you were not forced to and that was a very good thing at these meetings. I did a lot of observation of others while in the meetings, and what I saw was a lot of people engaged......
