Last week, we discussed dual coding theory. I'd like you to look at this image and discuss the elements of dual coding that you see. It is a Nike Ad.

Blog topic for the week of October 19

This blog post is due on October 26, by 11:59 pm.

This week, I'd like you to think about an experience you have had where information was miscommunicated in the work setting.  If you have not had a job, you can also think about how miscommunication impacted a sports team or any social organization.  What happened to cause the miscommunication to occur?  What was the aftermath?  How might the miscommunication have been prevented?

Blog topic for the week of October 5

This week, you will be doing your mock interview. You'll notice that part of your Portfolio 1 grade includes a mock interview reflection. I'd like you to blog this week on the mock interview reflecting on the process. Of course I realize that this is only a 10-minute interview (with an interviewer who is likely not an expert in your field but who also may not have a voice if you're going on Monday, lol), but I do hope that I can make the experience as real as possible for you.

Reflect on the following issues.

1. Were you nervous? How did you deal with this?

2. Did you get any questions that threw you? How did you handle those questions?

3. If you could do the interview again, what would you do differently?

4. What did you learn from this experience?
