Final Session Overview

In this session, participants will have an opportunity to write the final examination for the course and develop a personal plan of action for future personal and professional development.

There will be an opportunity to organize all the learning materials provided and ensure that the notes for the course are in a reasonable and accessible form for future use.

There will also be an opportunity for participants to find out any additional information about the Advance Course and other learning opportunities for electrologists.

Final Examination and Course Marking Scheme

The following marking scheme is used to assess your knowledge of the course content.

Weekly Quizzes

A weekly quiz was provided for Modules One to Eight.  The quiz for Module-nine is not included because it would be done during Module Ten when the final examination is presented.  Each weekly quiz was worth 25 marks for a total “Term Mark” out of 25 x 8 = 200 marks.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

A PERSONAL PLAN

Our personal development planning process is a way of collecting and assessing information that may be useful in improving our effectiveness.  It is a way of fashioning our self awareness into an actual step-by-step plan for self improvement.

The final test and electrologist’s assessment are both methods of generating information about yourself that can be converted into a plan for change.  However, other sources of information such as feedback from clients and peers and your own personal reflections can be helpful.  Convert this information into a plan of action for achieving the results you want…enhanced skills, better performance, better self image or more professional service for your clients.

The following planning process is a helpful way to get where you want to go.  Consider each step.  Take your time.  Remember that change only occurs if you truly want it to occur.

A Planning Process for Change

1.  Gather data on strengths and areas for growth and change.

2.  Reflect on how you can use presently identified strengths more effectively.

3.  Reflect on your personal areas for growth and change and consider some of  the current costs to you for not developing your strengths in these areas.

4.  Select the key growth areas that will provide you with the greatest “payoffs” when developed.

5.  Review some of the possible resources available for these growth areas.

     They might include:

  • Additional courses
  • Readings (review present materials or read additional ones)
  • Experts and counsellors
  • Trying new behaviour
  • Getting support from friends and/or colleagues

6.  Identify what additional information you require regarding resources and options and possible sources of the required data.

7.  Pick one promising skill development area from above and act on it (reserving the others for later).

8.  Begin by deciding how you might start and what your specific action plan will be (including timelines).

9.  Consider some of the roadblocks and obstacles that may keep you from following through on your plan:

  • Lack of money
  • Lack of time
  • Insufficient support from others

10.  Plan to overcome these roadblocks and obstacles using your own personal resources, intelligence and creativity to ensure that your plan will be successful.

11.  Initiate the plan and hold yourself accountable for it.  Decide how you will assess your progress and know when you have succeeded.

It is often helpful to discuss your plan with someone else or with a group of people who are preparing similar plans.  This enables you to draw on their interest and ideas, ask for constructive criticism and share a sense of commitment to change.  The group support can be very helpful in the encouragement and challenge we all need.
