Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Burnout

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search


I think this would be a very interesting topic, especially relevant to uni students. What constitutes burnout, and are individuals shown to have different thresholds to coping and stress before burning out? How is burnout distinguished from general fatigue? Is there a particular group/s at risk of burnout? Eg. surgeons, doctors, other kinds of shift workers, athletes. Can burnout occur in the absence of physical exertion? eg. sitting around studying all day? Can dietary supplements actually prevent or reverse burnout? Hope you can use these questions! Best of luck! PatrickBateman (discusscontribs) 03:17, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

Overall, this chapters provides a good attempt at explaining burnout as an emotion topic for a self-help audience, but needs to be rewritten to more closely follow the exercise's marking criteria.


The chapter was missing any theoretical background coverage. A starting point could be identify theories used in the cited articles.


The chapter includes some interesting research information. This aspect could be improved by including a wider span of research to give the chapter a bit more substance. In addition, the reviewed research should be critically examined.

Written expression[edit]

The chapter is written well, though it strays from academic writing a little more than is appropriate. Though it is a Wikiversity book chapter, it is still an academic resource 

The chapter could also be improved by follow the marking criteria in regards to heading and structure. The chapter could have used a lot more learning features to make it a bit more interactive and engaging. APA is well done, but needs hanging indents and DOI’s or web addresses for all refs.

Overall, a good attempt. See comments below for feedback

Structure and content[edit]

The presentation had a logical flow and covered the key points of the chapter. More solid theory would help improve the content in the future. For future improvement, try including some of the more specific points from the chapter about overcoming burnout.


The presentation was well paced, good job. The visual aspects of the presentation were easy to follow and I liked the images. To make the presentation more engaging perhaps include some illustrative case examples

Production quality[edit]

The quality of the production was good and the voiceover was clear. The presentation made effective use of basic tools, good work. For future improvement, remember to include references and copyright licensing info. Great effort! Courtney.reis (discusscontribs)

Heading casing[edit]

FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==
