DQ 2: Tulsha,

Public scientific lectures help to improve public knowledge and enable society to appreciate science. Public scientific lectures also enable direct interaction between the speaker and the audience. Public scientific lectures provide education to the public about all types of issues in health care as well as other issues. Positives points of this lecture methods are; it can be presented to a large audience to provide education to many people at once. Learners who like to learn by listening can learn more easily from this type of education. The information can be specifically organized to meet the learners need so, the learners do not have to participate other than listening and taking notes. Negative points are; if the topic is complex, this type of learning method may not be the better method. In this lecture method most of the learners lose attention after fifteen to twenty minutes. Also, not everyone learns at the same level of understanding and it may not be an effective method for the visual learners (Paris.C., 2014).

DQ 2: Jordan,

Personally I have only attended two different in-person scientific lectures, both as part of an energy science class I took in undergrad. I enjoyed both of them, and they similarly discussed energy options such as nuclear, coal, wind etc. If I remember correctly both lectures were roughly an hour plus questions at the end, which I thought was around the perfect amount of time to stay engaged. One of the most positive things about these lectures were that the presenters were very good speakers and kept the audience engaged by asking us questions throughout. The content was easily understandable and was kind of geared towards explaining the pros and cons of different types of energy to a layman crowd. A negative that I found was that it can sometimes appear quite biased and lacks information from the opposing side. This is why I like the idea of doing some sort of scientific debate as well. Apart from these two lectures, I have watched quite a few Ted Talks that I really liked. These are still public lectures but are instead posted online to reach greater audiences. What I like about many of these is that they are often a bit shorter and more direct so you can get all the information in about 30 minutes. One negative of these is that you feel a bit more distanced from the lectures and are of course unable to ask questions directly.

Leadership means to lead by example. Leadership is all about having the right values and morals instilled in you so that you can instill them in others as well. Leadership is about your character and how you treat others. When I obtain this master’s degree, I believe that it will put me in a position to become a great leader to others that may be under me in my profession. If leadership is about who you are, then I would have to lead with my characteristics that I have learned over the years. The first thing that I would do is be an honest leader. Being honest with the individuals that are under you will help them gain trust in you. Gaining trust will help the team progress in the right direction and also help achieve the goals that they set for themselves. The next thing that I will do to be a great leader is communicate with my team. Communication is important in any aspect of life. An important aspect of communicating is having great listening skills. When listening, it is a great idea to be empathetic towards the individual as well. The last characteristic that I have that will help lead a team in the right direction is loyalty. Being loyal to your team will help them be loyal to you. It is important to gain a tight bond as a whole so that conflict does not come up when the team does not agree. Everyone respects each other enough to talk through situations and overcome them as well.

Assignment Overview

For this assignment you will learn what makes each culture and subculture unique. Sociologists use the “components of culture” in order to identify cultures and subcultures. The components of culture are language, material objects, behaviors, and symbols. For this assignment, you will use existing resources to compare and contrast two different cultures or subcultures. Information about the components of culture and different cultures/subcultures can be found using the textbook, online materials, and the South University Online Library.

Below you will find a step-by-step guide for completing this paper:

  • Make certain you have read the chapter “Culture,” in Sociology in our Times.
  • Choose two separate cultures or subcultures to compare and contrast. Examples could be India and the United States or Gothics and Emos. Once you decide which cultures/subcultures you will research, use relevant keywords in your library search.
  • Compare and contrast these two cultures/subcultures, specifically analyzing the components of culture (language, material objects, behaviors, and symbols.)
  • Be sure to include an introduction with a thesis, conclusion that reviews all main points you present, and integration of your personal views on the topic.

Remember to use APA format for the essay style as well as in-text citations and when listing the references. Submit your 2–5-page essay (maximum 12 pt. font) describing your application project and your findings to the Submissions area.
