Overall, the workshop has made me to have a better understanding about how to apply and practice critical thinking in my learning journey. The presentation and activities during the workshop has given simple samples how to be critical especially in reading texts which is an important key point as a student. The workshop has ensured me in term of writing my assignment critically such as types of process of choosing or writing our words (purpose, audience, key information, logical order) and having different points of view (argument and against).
I will apply the critical way process (purpose, audience, key information, logical order) in writing my assignment.
I will prepare a set of challenging questions or mindset when reading books and articles.
I will use different kinds of perspective either advantages/disadvantages or positive/negative when I am writing my assignment.

I feel grateful to join the introduction to emotional intelligence workshop last week since at the beginning of the workshop, I was thinking to apply this workshop for my students. However, I found lots of interesting things that I can apply for my own learning journey in Warwick and my own career in the future.
The workshop has enabled me to understand more clearly about the concepts, benefits and impacts of an emotional intelligence. Some discussions and activities such as Boston EI questionnaire and body scanning have been useful for my personal reflection. Coincidently, the reflection part has helped me to improve one of my action plan under Warwick personal development skills portfolio.
Based on the Boston EI questionnaire, I need to work on my emotion management part to develop my emotional intelligence better.
I am going to apply a quotation from Eleanor Roosevelt which is "No-one can make you feel inferior without your own permission". I believe that this quotation will help motivating myself better in my learning journey especially in completing an assignment.
One powerful way given from the workshop how to show our uncomfortable or unhappy situation by using first person. This is going to enhance my leadership and people skills since I am the SSLC for my course.
