As I begin my 7th learning journal Daudelin's guideline continues to make me question weather I am following it properly. Perhaps I am only benefiting from writing my reading journals and through looking back being able to judge my progress. I struggle to add the depth and content required in these such reading journals as my feedback shows and conflicting feedback creates confusion and uncertainty as for which to angle. Peters feedback on other peoples journals has been in honesty the best way for me to gauge what to write. Overall I think in reflection I need more content and until I get that my overall learning experience is lacking key parts of Daudelin's reading.
This is apparent as when I was reading trying to figure out what I can add to my learning process the explanation of the "what else" question by Daudelin helps to expand the mind to more and more opportunities I can achieve along with his famous "may I". This in turn performs powerful functions of making me more prepared and angling myself around certain boundaries to further expand my abilities.
The Argyris reading further talked about teaching smart people how to learn and as I am a student I believe that is is hard to learn from failure and skilled professionals where we have already achieved so much. I Mikes Bikes the simulation teamwork reflects this as we have time and time again made similar mistakes with quality and over spending on marketing which is my role. Because we get results each week this becomes very frustrating as we continue to see very little change in our share price. Further this is increased with embarisment and pressure leading to criticism from the people in the organisation and teams. Argyris clearly states this and he makes a good point with our student learning as our decisions direcly reflect into our grades at the end of the term.
