Review time

After reading Domain of one’s own I now understand a little more of the concept. I thought it would be really helpful towards incoming freshman’s to be able to look at something like this as a guideline on how college is suppose to be and how to improve academically (the way they should right essays, how assignments should be, etc.). Honestly I wished I had this when I was a freshman, it would have helped me so much.

I also understand the concerns  some people will have when it comes to whether this type of thing will be used academically or not. However, it will be nice to have all the work you have done during the years as a reflection on how you use to write and how an individual created their presentations.

I know personally that sometimes stuff you learn in one class can sometimes be used in a different class, but most times we forget and we want that resource to guide us through that task again.

I think it is a good idea to have a domain of our own because we could even use them when we are looking for jobs. Most times interviewers want a portfolio of stuff you have done in the past, so it will be a nice way of showing them you have the skills to do certain things.

One thought on “Review time”

  1. My favorite way to think of Domain of One’s Own has a lot to do with what you’ve described. It’s a practice of making connections across your academic, personal, and even professional experiences. It’s when portfolio doesn’t just become this repository of stuff – that’s there – but’s it’s also an ongoing effort to make sense of what you’re working on and why.

    It can be hard to keep up. I personally wish I blogged more often on my site, but I can’t imagine getting rid of it after having been putting stuff there for the past 4-5 years. It’s been such a big part of what they call a “mid-career shift.” I don’t want to imagine what I’d be doing now if it wasn’t for blogging and discovering domain of one’s one and ds106.
