Session: A Five-step Thought Process for Self-discovery: From Chemical Engineering to AI Education Science
Career and self discovery is a lifelong subject for everyone. Underneath that is the ultimate self-discovery. Self-discovery is a process during which we practice 1. defining who we are, 2. knowing what we want, 3. figuring out ways to achieve goals, and 4. developing the skill set to quickly learn and find solutions. Since it is a process of practices and experiences, young people may not have that crystal understanding of who they are, where they are headed for, and how to get the desired status from the current.
This session aims to introduce a practical five-step thought process that I have developed along my journey (a chemical engineer to an AI Education Science Researcher & Practitioner) hoping that people can start practicing their critical & analytical thinking skills as early as possible.
The five-step thought process is a practice through which we attempt to identify what we want, rationalize why we want it, assess whether or not the true desire can be fulfilled by the move we take, estimate the effort and energy it requires and how ready we are for that course of action, and retrospect regularly for iterative improvement.
This session also intends to analyze any of their situations, dig into the true desires, and advice on potential actionable moves to bridge the gap.
