Applied learning papers are short (1-2 pages, double spaced) papers that summarize and apply the concepts and ideas presented in the week’s readings. These submissions should demonstrate an understanding of the material and the concepts it covers. Describe in your own words what the author is saying and how it can be applied in your personal work environment or to another plausible scenario. Please note: a simple rehashing or listing of items covered in the material will receive zero points. Your writing must demonstrate that you have not only read the material but also understand it and can apply it as well. APA formatting and citations (both in-text and reference) are required.
