Keynote Presentatoin at the Phi Theta Kappa Induction Ceremony

Phi Theta Kappais the nationally affiliated Honor Society at KVCC. I was nominated and elected to present the key note for the induction ceremony.

The title of my presentation was "Now that you have succeeded, it is time to fail!". The presentation focused on the need to fail in order to more fully understand where growth can occur. I discussed the Zone of Proximal Development and its application to establishing goals for personal, professional, and academic growth.
