As I have eluded to in previous posts
as well as particular Twitters
I began my Masters this week in residency at Evangel University
, Springfield, MO. I am realizing the difference between the work load and knowledge level when I received my AA in Architectural Design & CAD as well as my BA in Pastoral Ministries to a Masters level education. That coupled with the experience of being a hybrid experience, (Hybrid means, I fly out twice a year for a week of classes, professor introductions, class introductions, etc.) then the rest is distance study at home makes this a very overwhelming jump start.
Though this still is insurmountable in my mind...
I am very excited for what it will bring. When I look at the assignments, like the ones listed below, I see so many opportunities for growth as an individual but also for the organization that I am a part of.
Some of Term 1 Assignments:
- About a dozen or more books to read this term
- Forum discussions
- Case Studies
- Empirical Journal Article Reviews
So what do I want out of it, why am I doing this?
My goals are that the abilities I gain will be directly reflective in the different organizations and followers that God will allow me to lead.
That both the individuals around me as well as the organization would practice proper 'kaizen' in every way, simply meaning continual improvement.
