My Experience: Volunteering and Community Service
I was not able to volunteer at the Houston or NYC Food Bank, so I'm writing about my other experiences for Service Learning, Volunteering and Community. I have volunteered to assist my colleagues whom are from the nation of Haiti. e have collected toiletries from hotels stays (I'm a flight Attendant all F/A's contribute), school supplies, clothing as well as food. I have also had the honor of flying to Haiti to delivery these donations.
On one occasion, I had the opportunity to visit an orphanage and a home that housed mothers and their children. This was the saddest most emotional part of the trip, seeing the mothers of these precious babies. As I interacted with the families and got to hold this one particular baby, he was so cute. The mother said, "You can have him, you can keep him." It brought tears to….
I took that learning styles quiz and for me that was quite illuminating. I had never really thought before that there were different learning styles, but it makes sense now having seen that I definitely have a predisposition for a certain learning style. This actually did end up helping in the teamwork situation because we were able to help each other understand things. You could have somebody who did not understand something but the team would work together to find different ways of explaining it.
Also, I think the learning style thing is going to help me next year as well. University is a special challenge for me and I am excited to begin this challenge. Having gone through the exercises and learned a little bit about the ways I learn best, I think I can actually make some changes to the way I approach school, and that this will….

(10) the work of Pohl, et al. (2007) relates that the Academic Nurse-Managed Centers (ANMCs) are sponsored by schools and colleges of nursing and are furthermore "increasingly reaching attention" as their importance is being recognized is the response they provide the particular health care needs of communities. (11) the work of Deal, Fountain, Russell-roaddus, and Stanley-Hermanns (2006) entitled: "Challenges and Opportunities of Nursing Care in Special-Needs Shelters" relates the challenges that were stated by nurses in providing assistance in a special needs shelter following Hurricane Katrina. Challenges included the varying methods of volunteer recruitment, the operations of the shelter, the availability of supplies, methods of identifying patients and their locations, organization of medication for those unable to self-medicate, patient privacy and….

Service Learning Observation of Psychiatric Patients
Patients with normal health problems behave in a different manner as compared to patients with psychiatric problems. It has always fascinated me that psychiatric patients have an ability to look normal as compared to the patients with other health problems despite the fact that they are suffering from what can be in a longer term a fatal mental disease. My interest in psychiatric patients encouraged me to voluntarily work at a local psychiatric hospital to observe these patients and identify their attributes to develop better understanding of how they would react to certain situations. The paper aims to elaborate on my experience of work there and also elaborates on my observation of the psychiatric patients in the observed local hospital.

"Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts"
(Einstein, as cited in Freeman & Jackson, 2007, p. 338).
An old adage asserts that people remember what they see; they understand what they do
Freeman and Jackson (2007) note in the book, UnCommon sense about learning. In addition, just like the sounds one hears and the words one speaks have consequences, the things one sees in life also birth responses. One primary component contributing to students feeling included in school relates to them feeling "seen." In the first of a three series report relating to service learning in a small school setting, "What would it look like if all students felt included?," Frodge (2004) reports that teachers discussed how they currently "see" students. Teachers typically "see" students who routinely "act out" and demonstrate behavioral issues or problems as well as students failing classes right away. "What about….

Hope Chicago esearch ProjectHope Chicago is a non-profit organization that was founded by businessman Ted Koenig and entrepreneur Pete Kadens. The organization seeks to lessen economic and social inequity through financing post-secondary scholarships and non-tuition fees for Chicago Public School. This non-profit agency seeks to provide such funding to graduates and adult family members who want to return to school and improve their skills (Hope Chicago, 2022). To achieve this objective, Hope Chicago seeks to raise and invest at least $1 billion over the next ten years. However, achieving debt-free higher education in Chicago remains a major challenge requiring huge financial investments than the targeted $1 billion over the next decade. This paper discusses a solution that will result in a service-learning opportunity that positively contributes to society and deals with matters of equity and cultural responsiveness.Problem IdentificationHope Chicago believes that offering free college for all would help increase enrollment….

Discussion Question #1Service learning is an integrative experience that enables students to understand how education can be used as a tool for serving communities. As a result, this approach to learning seeks to promote academic and civic engagement, which implies that the latter is a major area of focus in service learning. According to Strait & Nordyke (2015), the major goal of civic engagement is to generate meaningful service and experience for the involved parties. Therefore, teaching civic engagement is critical to the achievement of service learning outcomes. The process of integrating civic engagement into service learning requires incorporating all the elements listed by Strait & Nordyke (2015).Personally, I would first focus on developing campus-community partnerships in effort to ensure successful outcomes are achieved in service learning. Such partnerships would help enhance the achievement of learning outcomes by providing students with field experience. I believe that campus-community partnerships give students….

Week 3 Discussion QuestionThe need to understand the role of service-learning for success in technology-based courses lies in implementing different learning modes and acquiring experience in the real-world practice of learned material. For example, the longest engagement of students in civil engagement results in deeper learning and yields significant community impact. Technology-based courses can involve assignments that stem from service-learning experiences that directly contribute to the students grade (Odegard, 2015). Collaboration with other students while covering learning material is also critical to enhancing their understanding. Understanding the correlation between academic study, practical experience, and civic engagement in complementary learning intersects with service learning. This approach enables them to identify acceptable service opportunities on learning materials and ensure the learning activities are integrated to connect with the courses academic and civic learning objectives.The academic preparation to ensure success in the service-learning project would involve setting learning objectives and planning the course….
Service-Learning VideoService-learning contributes to enhancing teaching methods by identifying learning gaps. It also provides learners with better experiences by experiencing diversity. The video \\\"Service Learning Projects Fall 18\\\" shares practical aspects covered in the course. It demonstrates a need to eliminate an imaginary learning approach by having students engage more closely with children. This requires a deep understanding of the learners to aid in developing different teaching methods. According to Strait and Nordyke (2015), service-learning outcomes advocate for knowledge contextualization, enhanced communication, research, critical thinking, techniques, and praxis. These integrate cognitive and intellectual skills, developing positive attitude and motor skills. When these form part of the learning structure, learners experience reduced stereotypes often attributed to cultural differences and a feeling of social responsibility.Lessons demonstrated in the video resonate with the course outcomes where such practical learning methods motivate educators to put more effort into enhancing benefits for children. Diversity is….
Service Theory design is not a basic foothold that can be explained in only a few sentences. There is a lot of thought, experimentation, research, and trial and error that goes into the creation of a sound theory. First, it is important to acknowledge all of the things that can play a role in the design of a theory itself. esearchers have reported that community and culture significantly influence value orientation (Goel, 2010), perceived needs, and motivation as well as provide the ground for creating shared understanding. All disciplines have their own cultures, and all cultures evolve through cross-cultural exchanges. It all starts with a series of questions and ideas that the researcher would like to find out background information on, and possible determine information that may not have been evident upon first glance.
The questions that would need further clarity are: (1) what model best fits the current prospective theory….

Learning Platforms -- K-12 and Beyond
A Comparison of Learning Platforms that Focus on the K-12 and Higher Education Learning Environments
Many of the educational initiatives in recent years have focused on improving the delivery of services by incorporating learning platforms that focus on the K-12 and higher education learning environments, such as WebCT or Blackboard. To determine how these learning platforms are being used today and for what learners, this paper will provide an overview of the features of learning management systems (LMS) that have assumed increasing importance for a wide range of corporate and government-sponsored learning environments. A comparison and evaluation of these platforms and their applicability to the different learning environments is followed by a summary of the research in the conclusion.

Given the capriciousness of the human condition with respect to continuing redefinitions of personal and professional success, human resource managers are faced with some difficult choices in formulating recommendations for best practices. Therefore, the learning journal would undergo a series of draft versions that would be used to solicit feedback from experts in the field who could point out flaws and areas that required additional research or support to be valid and trustworthy. The solicitation of feedback process would follow the guidance provided by Neuman (2003) who recommends having a manuscript reviewed by knowledgeable individuals who possess the requisite credentials to provide informed feedback. This feedback would be carefully reviewed and the collaborative process would result in changes and additions where they were deemed necessary and appropriate.

Learning Needs Assessment and Analysis
The University of San Diego Counseling Center (USDCC) has been established to provide enrolled students with access to quality counseling and healthcare services. Employing a diverse selection of the university's most accomplished psychiatrists, psychologists, medical doctors, registered nurses, and other healthcare professionals, the USDCC operates a high-volume Critical Intensive Care Unit with the assistance of a 50-member nursing staff. Although the USDCC has built a reputation for delivering competent and qualified critical care services across a number of years, the organization's management structure has become concerned that educational priorities have not been updated to reflect modern advancements in the field. To that end, the USDCC recently elected to conduct a comprehensive Learning Needs Assessment and Analysis to identify the paramount educational needs in place, and the institutional forces working to facilitate or impede the implementation of these needs. Empirical research on the efficacy of various instructional….

(3) According to the Multiple Intelligences Survey, I have quite a bit of intrapersonal and interpersonal intellegence and a moderate amount of musical and kinesthetic intelligence. This makes sense because I enjoy analyzing people and situations; and, I decided to leave my old job because I was bored sitting still behind a desk and not talking to anyone for most of the day.
As I was enjoying the surveys so much, also I took Kolb's Learning Styles Inventory and discovered that my learning style consists of doing and feeling or what Kolb would abbreviate as "CE/AE." When these findings are placed on the two-by-two grid by Kolb, my learning style is accommodating. An accommodating learning style is often times referred to as a "hands-on" style and one that relies upon intuition over logic. In fact, these findings also did not surprise me because I have to do something at least two….
