Self Assessment . In addition to the internship instructor’s assessment, the candidates also self-assess their knowledge, skills, and demonstrated proficiency of the specialization outcomes and sub-competencies. The pre-internship self-assessment provides the candidate with an opportunity to reflect upon their understanding of the specialization outcomes and sub-competencies, and to analyze their understanding and abilities within each one. The ultimate goal of the pre-internship self-assessment is to identify areas within the portfolio that need to be strengthened, and then use the internship hours to fill these gaps with new artifacts and demonstration of skills. At the completion of the internship, a final self-assessment will be completed to ensure competencies have been addressed and mastery will be demonstrated that presents a strong representation of applicable abilities, knowledge, and skills for each of the specialization outcomes.

Conclusion

As more and more institutions of higher education deliver courses and programs through distance learning, it will become increasingly important for them to have a clear understanding of how to adapt to a new delivery system. While the old cliché think outside the box would seem to apply here, it may be more appropriate to lose the box all together. Frequently, we are prisoners of our own inability to embrace inevitable change. “As inescapable as change is in today’s world, we still hope that change will avoid us personally and professionally” (Hall&Hord, 2005, p. 3). Yet, based on reoccurring trends and changes in education, educators cannot be so optimistic. Therefore, it is imperative that the schools of education and educational leadership programs prepare themselves for the changes that will occur.

Delivering administrative internship programs through distance education, and specifically in an online venue, may not be inevitable for every educational leadership program; however, what is inevitable is that we will no longer be able to conduct business as usual. Multiple reports call into question the effectiveness and credibility of many educational leadership programs throughout the United States. Something must change.

Principal preparation programs, and specifically administrative internship programs, have been taken to task for not connecting content gained in course work to practical application in the field. As increased demands for new and dynamic school leadership emerge, administrative preparation programs must equip the next generation of school leaders with the skills necessary to lead schools in a rapidly changing global society.

This paper has presented on online university’s effort to embrace that change. By offering state approved licensure programs in educational administration, including the internship, Capella University has attempted to eliminate the box. The internship program is designed using the latest national standards with the needs of tomorrow’s schools in mind. The commitment is to develop competent and dynamic leaders to lead those schools. By implementing a series of best practices that are based on current state and national standards, and by implementing a thorough and comprehensive planning and assessment program for the internship, Capella University has taken seriously the need to connect class room instruction and academic knowledge to the application of leading schools in the 21 st Century. Further, by offering this program in an online delivery system, Capella has embraced new and emerging technologies and provided a model for both its graduates and other institutions of higher education.

To pursue a career as a psychotherapist you'll have to do your bachelors in psychology. (bsc honors is preferable). since there are many fields and you've chosen as a therapist. a masters degree in clinical psychology or therapy and family counseling is preferable.

hae everyone, hope you are well this evning my question is what is the difference between drive and motivation
Michael
good question
Rainee
drive is more like an impulse or urge and i think they both go together (drive and motivation) even if there is a slight difference
edem
@ Michael Drive is delivered to be innate without the use of an external stimuli, motivation normally evolves an outside stimuli which may include praise, appreciate, or reward.
Reginald

@Reginald, can't the motivation come from the inner self?

Roger
the biggest problem with scientific research and data is that ya you could get the same result 1000 times then it could go the other way 1000 times, but we would never know that and we did, we would still say ya but the proof is there. The only thing science proves is that humanity has
Roger
no facts about human behavior in the scientific context, but more in the trial and error.. sorry to tell you, but so far no one has proven Father of anything, thats up to you and i, judgement is bias, science is good enough lazy

Anyone knows about Techno-fascism?
Hussein Reply
Ecofascism is a theoretical political model in which an authoritarian government would require individuals to sacrifice their own interests to the "organic whole of nature". The term is also used as a rhetorical pejorative to undermine the environmental movement.

what's the big difference between prejudice and discrimination?
Danice Reply
A prejudiced person may not act on their attitude.  Therefore, someone can be prejudiced towards a certain group but not discriminate against them.  Also, prejudice includes all three components of an attitude (affective, behavioral and cognitive), whereas discrimination just involves behavior
