Instructions:  Capture ideas and reflect on personal experiences pertaining to the module content. Journaling in the SMC is a continuous reflective exercise derived from the Coaching and Student Feedback Process. Reflective exercises (journalism) are essential in the development process.  Semester counseling sessions are designed to discuss individual assessment results, discuss personal strengths and weaknesses, and prioritize needs based on the student’s IDP.

 

Each semester rotation includes allocated time for one-on-one coaching and student feedback sessions between the student and instructor.  However, as discussed in the Assessment and Self Awareness lesson, the SMC uses the Experiential Learning Model (ELM) which emphasizes Active Experimentation (AE) and Reflective Observation (RO) in learning. Thus, students are also expected to take an active role in their development – this means come to each coaching and student feedback session prepared to discuss individual journal responses that were posed during the semester.

 

Student learners are expected use their student journals to gather, collect, store select evidence and capture reflective thoughts relevant to their learning and continued growth.  Students are to capture SMC Capstone-related notes, discussion question notes, lesson specific notes, and/or notes and reflective observations that student learners found significant in their continued  growth and progress as a SMC student and/or future SGM/CSM (or service equivalent).
