Discussion: looking inward to move forward | EDUC 6357 – Diversity, Development, and Learning | Walden University
As mentioned in this week’s reading assignments and introduction, though you are completing the final week of this course, it is just a starting point of a long journey of self-discovery and social activism. Take time to think about the process of reflection, which can be defined as an intentional account of what you have learned. Keep in mind that understanding what and how you have learned can generate more that’s of learning. For the final Discussion of this course, thoughtfully consider what you have learned and how you plan to “act powerfully” with the knowledge and tools you continue to develop.
