Reflection on Learning: Strengths

Professional EDGE
Monday, November 20, 2017 (All day)
EDGE Points: 
EDGE Competency: 
Self Awareness

Start date for online experience. Students will have one week (8 a.m. Monday to 5 p.m. Friday) to complete required activities via Canvas. 

The Gallup StrengthsQuest assessment is used in many courses (and in the professional realm) at Mizzou, and in countless workplaces that Mizzou students will find themselves as employees upon graduation. This Reflection on Learning exercise allows students to utilize the StrengthsQuest assessment results in a step beyond coursework applications by taking a “deep dive” into how the findings from StrengthsQuest can affect personal and career development moving forward.

Technical notes: Students will first submit the results of their StrengthsQuest assessment (results must be less than five years old). Next, students will answer a series of questions designed to help them reflect and learn from those results. All students will complete the Strengths assesment as part of their BA coursework. 

Students will have one week (8 a.m. Monday to 5 p.m. Friday) to complete.
