You have made the decision to continue your formal education and pursue an advanced graduate degree. As you reflect on the title of this learning module, “Igniting Your Passion,” consider your topics of interest in fields related to education. What factors contributed to your decision? Have you considered how you might pursue your passion in your course work? What expectations do you have of yourself and of the degree program?
In this Discussion, you will introduce yourself to your colleagues and Instructor with whom you will share a learning community and focus on the topics that ignite your passion as well as the passions of your colleagues.
Post a description of the work you are doing in your professional practice. Also, expand on your work-related experience so that you get to know one another and begin building a network with your colleagues as you journey through your program.
Then, explain what motivated you to pursue an advanced graduate degree in education and identify three topics of interest in fields related to education that ignite your passion. Finally, explain why these topics are important to you.
In the Discussion, you identified three topics in the field of education that ignite your passion and that may inform yourend product in your program of study.
In this Assignment, you will address, in more detail, the topics about which you are passionate, why you have decided to pursue an advanced graduate degree, and what you hope to accomplish with your degree.
Consider the information you shared with your colleagues and reflect on what your colleagues shared with you in the Discussion posts and responses. Ask yourself what impact you would like to make in the areas about which you are passionate and what changes you would like to implement. Think about how advancing your education might contribute to you making a difference in the areas about which you are passionate.
Note: As you move through your courses and begin to investigate topics that call for educational change, it will be very important for you to narrow your focus. The purpose of completing an advanced course of study is not for you to tackle and change the entire world but to begin your professional journey by focusing on a meaningful, targeted problem within the scope and the time frame available. As you can see from the inverted triangle, topics are broad, issues are subcomponents of topics, and problems are specific, narrowly focused statements for investigation. As you collect more and more information and begin to critically analyze the topic and the issues, you must begin to synthesize information to refine your target issue to a manageable size—the problem statement. This will demand that you begin to work on the skills of synthesis and advanced academic writing.
