Conclusion

Overall, the knowledge and skills I learned during this course will allow me to effectively use rhetoric as a means of portraying my argument and influencing others in my career as a Recreational Therapist. This will be helpful when it comes to advocating for my patients or speaking to fellow colleagues at conferences. The content on my ePortfolio should showcase many examples of how the various assignments in the course addressed the course learning outcomes and how the outcomes are translated into everyday use. Through the reflections aspect of this ePortfolio, I was able to complete the final course learning aspect as well which is outcome #4: analyze the effectiveness of their own texts and processes for specific rhetorical situations. I look forward to further learning and utilizing the course learning outcomes in my upcoming internship experience as well as in my future professional career in recreational therapy.
