:1. Reflect on the stimulus reading.
‘Employer” refers to the organisation/institution that you work for.
- In relation to the two sections read from of the Tertiary Education Strategy reflect on and consider the following questions:
- Do you think your employer has a similar vision to the Ministry of Education?
- Do you think your employer shares any of the same priorities as the Ministry of Education?
- 2. Seek resources
- Does your employer have documentation that outlines the organisational strategies and priorities such as mission and vision statements, and a strategic directions plan?
- Do you know where to find this documentation? Internal communications networks and the organisation's website are good starting points to search. Ask colleagues if you are unsure.
- Find your organisation’s/institution’s documentation around strategies and priorities and identify what the key points are.
- Reflect on these key points. Do you consider them relevant to your own work? Note your reflections in your learning journal.
- Share where you found the documentation with others in the course using the Moodle Discussion forum.
