Benefit Tips For Educator

This election season has proven divisive among Americans, creating deep wounds from the words that have been used. The rift between groups in America are not going to heal just because the election is over with and it will take time for the nation to recover. Now consider how this election season has affected your students. They have surely felt the impact of the negative rhetoric. Have you addressed this in your classes?

What you say and what you do as an educator shapes how your students view the world, how they participate in the learning process, and more importantly, your words have a direct impact on their level of motivation, determination, and persistence. Do you know the power you have given to your words right now?

Tips To Make Your Student Being Better Everyday

When you see a new class of students for the first time, or interact with a group of online students for the very first time, what is your initial feeling about your students? Do you consider the expectations of these students, or are you more focused on helping them become acclimated to the class? What are your hopes for your students? I understand that on the first day of class there is a lot to accomplish from a procedural perspective; however, do you consider the point of view of your students and what they might be thinking as they first interact with you and others in the class?

When I am assigned a new online and it is the first day, even after working in the field of distance learning for over eleven years, I still think about the hopes that students hold for their degree program overall – and how this class is part of their overall plan. I know that each and every one of them have potential to learn, they have a range of experiences to draw upon, and their knowledge about the course topics may also be vastly different

All About Engineering Career

An Engineer is the most intelligent form of human. It is not just a statement. It explains a detailed story. A doctor risks a life at a time. A lawyer risks a case at one attempt. A Chef risks a meal at once. But being an engineer, one bears a great responsibility, as a collapsed bridge can end thousands of lives at once. A crashed plane can destroy hundreds of families in an instance. A failed dam can digest thousands of villages and cities in a matter of time. So, being an engineer is one of the greatest responsibilities, one can bear in a lifetime. Not only a responsibility towards lives, but also towards progress and development. History of mankind evolved around the success stories of scientists and engineers.

No wonder, engineering is the most preferred career option among science students nowadays. And, as our modern education system focuses on specialization, students have many streams to be opted while taking admission in an engineering college. Here we are trying to discuss and explain some of the most common and popular streams (also known as branches)

Having Fun During College

Do Lots of Research

One big mistake many college students make is not doing their due diligence before planning a trip abroad. There’s a lot you need to know about your destination that can actually help you to save money. For instance, you can look up different hotel and airline options with a simple Internet search. You can use sites like Hotwire and Trip Advisor to help find the best deals for your transportation and sleeping arrangements. You can also sign up for travel newsletters like Travelzoo and Travel-Ticker, which delivers exclusive deals to your inbox.

Look for Student Deals

You’ll find countless websites online that boast the lowest rates in town, but there are only a select few that are designed to offer deals to students. You should check out sites like Student Universe and STA Travel, which have package deals and discounts designed just for the traveling student. These are available to you as long as you’re able to prove your university enrollment. You’ll also find great money-saving tips given by other traveling students.

Consider All Forms of Transportation

There are more ways to travel than by airplane and car – you should also consider other modes of getting around, such as trains,

Problem That Happens On Online Learning

In recent years, professors have become more skilled and accepting of online teaching, yet, there are still a few questions and comments that continue to echo in my ear among my colleagues: What can I do to show students that I care? What do I do to make sure students feel connected to me beyond the content? How do I help students to recognize my overall concern for their learning? How do I show my emotions in an online environment?

Having pondered the above-stated concerns, I’d like to share five ways that online educators can demonstrate caring and compassion to online students.

1. In the beginning weeks of class, respond to each student individually. I find that students need the special attention as they are feeling their way in a new learning environment; moreover, I have seen clear evidence that these personal responses lay the foundation for healthy student-teacher relationships.

2. Use appropriate “feelings” phrases when students are experiencing personal issues such as death of family members, personal illness, or financial crises. Students appreciate hearing phrases like “I’m sorry for your loss”, “I’m hoping for a positive change in your situation”, or “I care about your situation”. Upon using these kinds of phrases,

Find The Job That You Want

Most colleges haven’t gotten the message. Students want and need good jobs when they graduate. However, to accomplish that goal, they need a lot of information and guidance along the way. Both students and their parents want colleges to step up and take a firm hold of that responsibility.

As long as students and parents remain relatively silent and docile on this issue, colleges will continue to only pay lip service to this critical need. These colleges will tell their students that they are doing what they can with the limited resources that are available. And yet, large amounts of money and manpower are not needed. Only a new way of thinking and a reallocation of resources would be necessary. That’s where you come in.

Students and parents can make their needs known by forwarding the following questions to The Chair of the Board of Trustees, The College or University President and the Vice President of Student Affairs.

1. There are things that I can be doing during each semester of college, between semesters and during the summers that will help me land a good job. What are they?

2. What yearly informational classes and training sessions are currently offered to students who want

Why Work Experience Is Important

Students who work as they go through college with internships, part-time and summer jobs give themselves an important advantage in the job market when they graduate. Since not all working students understand how they benefit from their work experiences, it is important for them to think about their jobs as a way to support their career goals. For that to happen, students should understand five factors that improve their odds for employment success:

1. Experience – Knowing what to do and actually doing it are two different things. Employees who are experienced can anticipate problems and know how to handle the issues that crop up. They quickly get things running smoothly again and can maximize productivity. Since some skills and abilities only come with experience, employers love candidates who have already demonstrated their capabilities and work ethic in the workplace. Real world emergencies, accidents, mistakes, equipment failures and the difficulties and pressures that go with them will test any employee. The way students react to them depends on the experience and understanding they gain on the job.

2. Performance – Employers seek candidates who will perform well for them. Although doing well in the classroom is highly desirable, that doesn’t always translate

The Meaning Going Into College

As I watched this A4 sized paper which happens to be my University Degree certificate in the computer Science and Engineering department of October 2016, a plethora of memories just came as a silver lining to my mind. This is merely because this single floating paper has a full conglomeration of different feelings of happiness, hard work, perseverance, tiredness and teamwork behind.

As the clock ticked to memories of three years ago, I can still vividly remember how the postman was among the most awaited person during the May-June month of 2013. Indeed the most awaited news- the approval of courses applied at the tertiary level from the University Of Mauritius was on the way. Those who have undergone through this waiting shall reckon, but believe me, no feelings can be better than those first stumbling steps to the university, a yard which shall bring in one’s life, an ever-growing platform to blossom your parent’s dreams, your beloved ones, or simply the one in the mirror dream.

As the day goes by, the same stumbling feet gain momentum and March forward to achieve and shape the best version of themselves for a better world of tomorrow. Since Success is the prime reason

How To Overcame Your Student

What do you believe students remember most about the courses they have taken? Is it the course, the school, their grades, their instructors, or something else? As I reflect upon the courses I took as a student, which wasn’t too long ago, I do not remember many of the textbooks I’ve read, discussions I was involved in, videos I watched, or written assignments I had to complete. What I do remember are some of my instructors – those who inspired me and encouraged me to perform my very best, and those who taught me what I should never do as an instructor. In other words, the most vivid memories I have involved those instructors who stood out for extraordinarily outstanding instructional methods, especially those who took time to develop a personal connection with me, and those who were extremely ineffective in the classroom. Whether instructors invoke the best or the worst emotional reactions, it most always creates a lasting impression for students.

I have learned from my work with faculty development that it is not possible for a school to guarantee that every instructor hired, especially as an online adjunct, is going to create optimal learning conditions and have a disposition

Why Alumni Does Not Donate To Their College

Graduating from college is one of life’s major accomplishments. It should be celebrated ecstatically with all of an alumni’s family and friends. As several months roll by, graduates contemplate their career, or perhaps just a get a job to earn money before starting a career. But, at the same time, most graduates get the “call.” It’s not from an employer interested in hiring, but a representative from your school’s alumni office asking for a donation!

A donation already? Surprise!

Universities and colleges really want to build on their already long donor list. They don’t care about that huge amount of tuition money that a new alumni may be still paying off for the next 20 years. When colleges do call, they try to get the most from you: “Would $50 be enough? What about $100 to be on our “Silver Standard Group? Or, $500 to be on our Gold Standard Group?”

Today alumni are giving less to their school than they were twenty years ago, primarily for seven reasons.

1. According to the August 31, 2016 post of the Washington Examiner, the main reason most alumni aren’t giving money to their college is because they would use the money to give to worthier charitable

All About Doctorate Degree

Completing a doctorate degree is a significant accomplishment. This achievement represents the culmination of hard work, extensive critical thinking and research about the chosen field of interest, and the result is a contribution made in the form of new ideas, thoughts, plans, methodologies, and/or actionable recommendations.

Consider in contrast, the number of individuals who complete their coursework but not the dissertation portion of the doctorate program. Current research shows there is an unprecedented number of individuals who are at the “all but dissertation” or ABD phase, and it is unknown what weight or influence a doctorate degree with the initials ABD in the title may have, if any at all.

Also consider that a doctorate degree, in academia, is the highest level of academic achievement. As those of you know, it is also the costliest of academic degrees as well. In fact, the total number of people within the United States who possess a doctorate degree is less than 10{9be8c68deae6204af2bd206e90a50dedd768560a74f512331f71853f91538809}. Within academia, doctoral candidates are generally told they will become scholar practitioners, and they are encouraged to continue their research and practice what they have studied.

For those individuals who complete a doctorate degree, there is an expectation that their careers will change

Things Before Going College

Are you through with your high school education and looking to pursue a university degree? Here are a few things you should know:

Benefits of having a university degree

There are plenty of benefits that come with having a university degree. Some of these advantages include:

More money: This is a no-brainer. According to the state higher education executive officer’s association, those with bachelor degrees earn almost twice than those with high school diplomas. The higher the level of education, the more money you make. While the amount you make varies depending on the gender, the course of study and location, generally when you have a college degree you earn more.

As you know, when you earn more you afford more thus you are much comfortable than someone without a degree.

Job security: When you have a college degree you are more valuable to the employer than someone who isn’t educated. This is because you have valuable skills that the employer can use in his/her business. These skills make you more attractive thus you are less likely to be fired.

Job satisfaction: Most of the college graduates work in areas they studied in school. This gives them an opportunity to practice what they have been studying.

Signs About Our Education System Is Failing

Recently, today actually, I saw a post of a video on Facebook that detailed simple questions posed to university students regarding BASIC social and historic facts, events and the people who govern our country. The results were astounding to say the least! Abject failure and an inability to name or identify ANY of the people, places and events. Let me repeat… NONE.

The formal education system in the U.S. was designed to meet the demands of the industrial revolution by providing basic education to the masses. Pretty simple right? So why is it that we fail to recognize or refuse to acknowledge that the demands are different today? There has not been a calculable redefinition or evolution of the educational system since. This is scary as it will define the failure of our country step-by-step and bit-by-bit until we are reduced to a social collection of ignorance.

Let’s examine the cause and solutions.

1. Closed for Business!

Schools find their existence tied to community standards and financial restraints based on the community support… or lack of. The result is that schools are closing at an alarming rate across the country. The decision to close a school rarely reflects the needs of a community or,

Tips For Teaching Adults

Teaching adult students can be a transformative experience, for educators and students alike, when both immerse themselves in the learning experience through the exchange of ideas and discourse which sparks critical thinking. Teaching adults is more commonly called instruction or facilitation, and is often viewed as a specific function with associated requirements that depend upon the person’s status and classroom environment. Some persons choose to teach adults as a career in a traditional university and others choose a non-traditional route, such as an online school or corporate classroom.

But why does someone, or why would someone, decide to teach adults as a career choice? I have found there are persons who are good with the delivery of information, effective facilitating a learning process, or excel as public speakers, and those are often the underlying reasons for being in a classroom and holding a job related to some form of instruction. Other persons are subject matter experts or effective researchers, and they enjoy sharing their knowledge with students in the classroom.

Those reasons provide the basis for a teacher or instructor to be effective with the process of teaching or instruction, deliver a lecture in an engaging manner, or have the knowledge necessary

The Advantage of Studying Abroad

The option to study abroad can present a wide range of beneficial experiences for the young person. One of the most appealing aspects is the ability to learn and appreciate the culture of a different country and really see how other people live. Plus, it can really help to bring out a person’s independent nature. Let’s take a look at four of the key benefits:

Discover a new country

A great reason to apply to study abroad is the opportunity to experience life in a brand-new country. This makes it possible to appreciate different activities, customs, and outlooks. In addition to studying, the time in your host country can include exploring the local landmarks, museums, natural wonders and new terrains. Also, there may be plenty of opportunities to visit neighboring countries. For instance, if you are studying in a European country, it can be very easy to reach other major cities like Rome, Barcelona, Paris and London.

Great education

The ability to study aboard makes it possible to learn a qualification or experience a different style of education that isn’t an option at home. Also, when you are away from home with fewer distractions, there is a greater chance that you will fully immerse

Tips For Higher Education

Change can involve excitement and looked at as a great opportunity or be scary and as the worst thing that can happen. Whether it is a good or bad experience is contingent on a person’s attitude. Regardless of how it is experienced, normalizing change is the pathway to a fulfilled life.

A baby’s first steps are shaky, but eventually result in a flop. Moving from middle school to high school for the first time is something to look forward to, but upper classmen can be intimidating. Leaving home to go to college means freedom and independence, but also the potential for homesickness, intimidation with arrogant professors, and hard-to-get-along-with roommates. Day one on the first real job is the start of a new chapter in life, but feeling totally stupid is common.

The aforementioned experiences are a common pathway for students pursuing higher education. Real change begins by making difficult choices. After getting to high school, will the student respond appropriately or react negatively to bullies and gossipers? Are the challenges of pursuing higher education leaned into rather than avoided or denied? Does the fear of asking questions and false pride dictate how the new job goes?

Tough choices continue as life goes on.

Life After College

Each one of us grew up with an aim, a dream in our heads, which determined our higher education, our choice of college.

Coming to college is like a dream come true for many. That sense of freedom, responsibility, the endless possibilities for future, friends, bunking. If you ask me, college life makes a boy a man.

But life doesn’t stop there. In the blink of an eye, college life gets over (I’m in my last year and I have no idea how the last two years went by) and you’re facing the real world; and you know, you have to have a job.

Some of us might be in a corporate job, some in the healthcare industry, some maybe entrepreneurs- whichever we choose, we are now of the working class. And as days go by, you feel nostalgic about those good old college days, wishing to go back.

I have brought together a list of differences between college life and professional life. I hope you can relate to them.

1. Friends vs. Co-workers/ colleagues.

What’s college life without friends? The plans of bunking classes, going out for movies, playing cupid, helping one another for assignments- none of them would have been possible without them. But

How To Manage Your Stress

I’m so stressed, I feel that all of my hairs must be white! I have SATs, Mock preparation exams, TOEFL, WAEC, NECO and about a million things to do for my university application. My teachers and my parents won’t get off my back and I feel like everyone in school is out to get me. My life is totally spinning out of control! Nobody understands me and I feel like I’m losing my mind. How can I get my life back under control?

This is the thought of many students. I have a message for them.

Sometimes in life, it feels like everything is pouring down on you at once. From what I am seeing, it seems like you have a lot on your plate. These are all important exams which will determine a major part of your life. But there are several things you can do.

Firstly, it is important to plan your life out. Since you have such a busy schedule, it is important to plan almost every second of your life for the next few months in order to be able to properly prepare for everything. Having a daily, weekly or even monthly planner can help you evaluate what you
