LB Part 1

The highlight of the course for me centered on the qualitative
coding assignment conducted based on the designated discussion board post
provided by my fellow cohorts. First of all, I found interesting
everyone’s perceptions and feelings of what it meant to be a doctoral student
and how each of our lives had changed. For the most part, a significance
in the similarities in the collective responses centered around professional
achievement and advancement, a yearning for continued education, knowledge, and
improvement in research. Many of us had similar experiences with regard
to motives, concerns, and struggles encountered before and during enrollment
into the program.

Getting
back to the coding exercise, I have been aware of a number of qualitative coding
software applications and solutions available to researchers; however, much
like the early navigators, I felt an understanding of using rudimentary, manual
methods for coding might increase my understanding of the coding process,
assist with the creation of the code book, and enhance my appreciation for the
overall process. My only regret in the coding exercise resided with not
leveraging the automated process to evaluate the validity and credibility of my
manual approach. Due to timing constraints in my schedule, I was not able
to complete an automated coding process prior to the assignment due date.
I hope to compare the automated coding results to my manual results in
the near future.

Moving
forward in the doctoral journey, I do feel an increased level of comfort in my
qualitative analysis approach. From identifying the prospective sources,
identifying a methodology for sampling of those sources, and generating
interview inquiries and observational methodologies posed against a centralized
research questions, I have found this course and the nature of the assignments
very supportive in developing a better understanding of in conducting
qualitative research.

In
preparation of my own doctoral research, I’m committed to learn more about the
intricate details of the qualitative approach to be taken in researching the
skills deficiencies of cyber security professionals in the Colorado Springs
federal labor market. Through developing the interview and observational
framework, I plan on expounding on the nature of the questions, and
observational activities planned to increase validity and credibility in my
study.

After reading Jamals
issue i would say:

Hey
jamal i hear ya math isnt my strongest subject either, and man who knew
how hard college can be! im glad you had no issues with the first unit, but i
see your struggling to complete the second one. I myself am in the same boat
but did you know that our school offers FREE tutoring? i didnt either til i
reached out to my admissions advisor. Try to reach out to yours and see if they
are able to provide you anymore info about it if not im here and i can help you
get set up!

According to the scenario, Jamal is having some problems in
math. I feel that this is a subject that many people have problems understanding
at times. I think Jamal should take a break and regroup. Maybe some time away
could give him a little more perspective on what he is learning. Many times
people dwell on something for way too long and this can have a negative impact
on his achievement in the class going forward. He should also move on to
another lesson and then he can go back and try this unit again. It may just be
that he has spent so much time on this unit that he is just discouraged. This
can make him feel bad about himself, thus having a negative impact on how he
views himself going forward in the class.

Jamal
could really use the support of his family and friends. He should reach out to
them and let them know what he is struggling with. He should also reach out to
his learning coach for some possible ideas to help him achieve his goal. He
should also consider asking for help with the problems he is struggling with.
He could reach out to his instructor for help or even use the online tutoring
to help overcome this obstacle. The main thing is for him to continue on and do
his best. He can succeed as long as he doesn’t put too much pressure on himself
and continues to communicate with family, friends and faculty that are there to
assist him.

AW Part 4

I decided to enroll in CTU when traditional college wasn’t
working out for me. Although what I’m studying does not directly relate to my
field that I’m interested in studying at CTU will help my GPA increase
dramatically so I can re-enroll at a traditional university to eventually
obtain my bachelors in biomedical science. Through proper organization and
maintaining a good studying schedule I know that I will be home successful at
Colorado technical University.

AW Part 5

My motivation for wanting to
enroll at Colorado Tech was very simple; I wanted to be equipped and geared for
success in the future to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a self made
millionaire. I had several friends, all military, that had discovered CTU and I
received and email one day saying that a friend had suggested I try CTU and being
the curious individual that I am I decided that I wanted to at least send out
and inquire. What I received in the way of response was overwhelming, starting
first with my admissions advisor, Jonovia, who was heads and tails beyond
efficient and amazing and truly made matriculating into CTU one of the easiest
and most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had getting into school.

My life will
exponentially grow in forward lateral progression with my degree from CTU not
only because of the credentials that it will provide for me but also because I
will have the pride of having completed something that I have for so long
wanted to complete but never had the emotional and mental strength to complete
it. I believe that I will finally find my place in this world and truly begin
to grow in ways that I have always dreamed of growing and be the person, the
man, I know that I am capable and created to be.

A couple of strategies that I believe will keep me motivated and
on track and number one, first and foremost, my family. My family has always
been my biggest advocate, my biggest fan club and have always, always stood
behind and beside me urging me to go further, stronger, faster, longer and to
never give up. Without the support of the family that God has blessed me with I
would never be in the position that I am today. Secondly, shear success and
lateral upward progression will continue to be something that propels me
forward and continues to keep me motivated and equipped and ready for whatever
challenges that life may bring post graduation and even during my education.

AW Part 6

Hey yall so im back again and i went to the
learning center and found many of amazing things there, but the one that caught
my eye the most and i feel will be very helpful for any student in their
journey of college is student success center, in there i found the student
success skills so i took a dive and found something called stress
management!

Stress management is a source for
students to utilize to help them control the stress and methods to help bring
their stress levels down. They have videos you can watch that will essentially
motivate you to get the stress out!

This resource interested me because i myself find
to get stressed out fairly quick, and when i get stressed i start to shut down.
I like that it can give me things to do to help stay stress free, and
motivational videos that will help me remember i got this and to stay
positive!

I will find myself in this section very
often, i will definitely be using this resource when i feel like i’m
overwhelmed, when i feel myself unable to handle stress for life itself, and
when i need to just remember stress is apart of life but i have ways to
help reduce it! i will try the methods it gives, me read over the articles i
can utilize, and watch the videos.

AW Part 7

As a new student at CTU and first time college student many
resources are very useful to me. The resource that selected is the Smart
thinking resource. I chose this resource because with this resource you
can go there any time you need and get help. That is a helpful tool/resource to
me because most of the time you would need a little help to accomplish all the
things you need to get done on time. The purpose of this resource is to get
help from a tutor whenever you are have difficult times finishing an
assignment. I took interest in this resource because I intend to wanting to
give up easily and get stressed out when I can’t succeed in my work. I like
that it gives me a go to person when I really need help. I will find myself
here very often when I need help completing a difficult task.
