Choose two of the student expectations from the 10 expectations discussed in the Learning Activity and explain how they will help you be successful in completing this course.
Weegy: Students need to believe they can be successful if they are going to try. Their expectations for success influence their willingness to engage in learning. [ For example, a student who believes that he is good at writing is more likely to spend his time crafting and revising his short stories than a student who does not have confidence in his creative writing skills. Numerous studies have shown that students with confidence in their abilities to succeed on a task work harder, persist longer, and perform better than their less efficacious peers .Other students, in contrast, believe that intelligence is something that can be cultivated and that it is not prede- termined or limited. Students who espouse these “incremental” theories about intelligence are more likely to believe that their intelligence is linked to the amount of effort they devote to learning and improving. They will tend to work harder when they encounter an obstacle, rather than giving up. In the classroom, teachers need to emphasize the importance of effort and encourage students to believe that through effort they will indeed improve. ] (More)

Weegy: Name 3 General Project Guidelines and provide a short explanation of their purpose The project lifecycle In order to manage effectively it helps to understand the typical lifecycle of a project and how it applies to your specific project. [ You need to decide how the management activities of the lifecycle steps will be achieved, and precisely who will be involved. You must make sure you understand your role in making these things happen in the right way and at the right time. Much of the project management effort across the lifecycle will be driven by the owner/sponsor of the project (known as the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) ), and the Project Manager. To achieve success they will almost certainly need to draw upon the skills and experience of many others from within the organisation, its partners and suppliers. The BIS Project Lifecycle While Step 3 - Running a Project is by far the most resource intensive part of the project, it is the care and effort devoted to project start up and initiation that makes the most significant contribution to project success. The following diagram summarises the project management tasks at each step in the lifecycle. Programme and Project Governance "Governance - the functions, responsibilities, processes and procedures that define how the programme is set up managed and controlled" (source: OGC Managing Successful Programmes) Purpose All projects involve decision-making and stakeholder relationship management at different points in the project lifecycle and at a variety of different levels. The decision-making element should ensure that a new project does not start or continue unless it is: • Worthwhile • Viable • Affordable • Good value for money • Planned and controlled • Within tolerances for acceptable risk source basis: ] (More)
