Your goal in this project is to plan, design create and produce a professional, fully functioning website or blog that reflects your skills as a Year 3, Bachelor student. Your aim is to produce an individual, technology-based, record of your learning during this course.
This project is designed to help you to reflect on and then to describe your learning each week, and then to summarize your journey through this course.
You will add a reflective statement for each of the Modules and will be expected to include all other relevant documents to your E-folio. You will also add an overall reflective statement, outlining your learning and your progress towards development of workplace transferrable skills to prepare you for the competitive UAE labour market of today.
When creating this E-folio, take this opportunity to showcase your skills and talents. Ask yourself, “would I be proud to display this efolio of my work?”
|1.||This is an individual project.|
|2.||Go to http://webbyawards.com. This site has the "Best of the web" awards to many web sites for their design and content. Browse through this site and make note of sites that you like and pay close attention to how the sites have used layout, images, navigation animation and other content.|
|3.||The layout, format and presentation is your decision – but remember – this is an E-folio and must reflect your image as you would want a prospective employer to view you.|
|4.||If you decide to include PowerPoint presentations, they must be in slideshow format and be viewable online without needing to download the file first.|
|5.||Consider the person viewing your efolio. Everything must download quickly and without interruption. Graphics must be broken down into smaller pieces rather than one big graphic template that you have created in Photoshop.|
|6.||Make sure that music and/or sounds on your site are appropriate and professional. Be very careful!!|
Your E-Folio must include reflections of your learning during each of the 6 Modules in this course.
You MUST include reflections covering all of the following:
|Introduction to Emotional Intelligence||150-200||A statement explaining what you understand by EI|
|Self-Perception||500||Emotional Self Awareness, Self –Regard, Self-Actualization|
|Self-Expression||500||Emotional Expression, Independence, Assertiveness|
|Interpersonal Relationships||500||Interpersonal Relationships, Empathy, Social Responsibility|
|Decision Making||500||Reality Testing, Problem Solving, Impulse Control|
|Stress Management||500||Flexibility, Stress Tolerance, Optimism|
|Application of your new knowledge||150-200||Details of the ways in which that knowledge can be translated directly into the workplace environment.|
Make sure that all of the following are clearly and fully discussed:
- the learning process – what have you learned during this module?
- what have you learned about yourself?
- where appropriate - mention your career goals and/or your personal goals
- discuss your skills
- where appropriate - discuss the types of jobs in which you are interested – relate these to your goals
- discuss the skills that you feel you need to develop to be successful in your future career and explain how you will develop these skills now that you know more about your Emotional Intelligence
- problems experienced and how you dealt with them (during the process of this course)
- successes and what you have learned from them (during the process of this course)
- skills you feel you did not completely mastered and why you feel this way
- brief list of tasks completed
All points above must include several supporting details and/or examples. Points must show originality and depth of thought. Reflections must be error-free.
Points to note:
- You must make full and meaningful contributions. Submitting a 1 line statement or simply repeating what you wrote for the previous Module is not acceptable and will result in lower grades.
- Write about something different that you have done/learned/experienced during each Module – make your comments interesting to read.
- All comments/reflections must be clearly labelled.
Your E-folio and its contents must be professionally presented.
Your reflection will be based on your Self Assessments, therefore it is important that you complete all of these Self Assessment activities.
The project is due on Thursday 20 March 2014 (compressed section).
