Week 2 Discussion

DQ1 What difficulties or challenges do you anticipate as you prepare your journal entries throughout this course? For your first response to this question, give your answer to this question. Then read the responses of your fellow students and give them some feedback and suggestions as to how they might solve or avoid the problems they are anticipating. Hopefully someone will also have some suggestions for you!

DQ2 By this time, you have been to your site at least once, maybe several times. From what you have seen so far, what theories, research findings, concepts, or other knowledge in your field do you think will be most applicable to you as a volunteer? Explain your reasons. As you look at the responses of other volunteers, especially those in the same major as you, what are your thoughts about what they wrote? That is, can you understand why they wrote what they did? Can you suggest other theories, concepts, research findings, etc., that they didn't think of? If so, explain to them why you think these other ideas might help their volunteer experience.

Week 3 Discussion

DQ1 Briefly describe how you used problem-solving skills to resolve a problem you encountered during your volunteering experience. (The problem may not have been one in the organization. It could be one you encountered that had to do with your role or how you were going to accomplish things as a volunteer.) After you have posted your contribution, read the contributions of two or three other students and make constructive suggestions as to alternate ways they might have dealt with the problem they presented. Be as specific as you can – do not simply say something like, "you should have handled it differently."

DQ2 The IDEAL problem-solving process developed by Bradford and Stein (1993) is implemented by: (I) Identifying the problem, (D) Defining the problem, (E) Exploring strategies, (A) Acting on ideas, and (L) Looking for effects. Think back to the problem you discussed in DQ1 or use a new problem that you have experienced in your volunteer (internship) experience. How can you use the IDEAL problem-solving process to help you solve the issue you have encountered? Please give examples that engage each of the steps in the IDEAL model.

Week 5 Discussion

DQ1 Meet with the human resources director or the hiring person at your site. (If there is no one with that title, speak with whoever does some of the interviews of prospective new employees.) Ask that person at least five questions to find out his/her best and worst interview experiences. Describe the five questions that you asked and the answers that you received when you met with the human resources director or hiring person at your site.

DQ2 What interview types did this person describe? For example, consider the screening, the selection, the group, the competitive, the panel, or the stress interview types.
