Lower-case headings[edit source]

FYI, the style convention on Wikiversity is for lower-case headings. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 11:03, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello ^-^[edit source]

Loving the number of headings you have up already you really look like you are going in a good direction structure wise. Looking forward to reading it as it gets posted up as i'm really interested in your subject. Have you any tips on how i can relate my topic of Body Modification to the reader as you have done in your "How can Meditation help me" section?

Article[edit source]

Hi Erin I found this article on meditation and concentration done in the 1980s. I noticed that's one of your headings so hopefully this helps you. http://www.amsciepub.com/doi/pdf/10.2466/pms.1980.50.3.799 Emily.Antonio (discusscontribs) 02:29, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Overall[edit source]

Overall, this is a very well constructed book chapter, with useful theoretical and research material, supported by practical examples.

Theory[edit source]

Some theories were covered, although this could have been more extensive.

Research[edit source]

A few studies were described, although this could have been more comprehensive e.g., no mention of http://www.ashanamind.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/physiological-effects_Sedlmeier_12.pdf

Written expression[edit source]

Written expression was generally good and the chapter is easy and interesting to read. Some areas for possible improvement:

  1. Grammar: Ownership apostrophes needed e.g., for people's, one's etc.
  2. A good number of wiki links were added (more would be useful)
  3. APA style - check alphabetical ordering of citations (e.g., swap Hernandez & Harhammar, 2013; Davidson, 2001)
  4. Use of interactive features was limited (e.g., no images (uploaded images were deleted due to a lack of appopriate copyright information), links to other chapters, or external links)

Overall[edit source]

Overall, this is an effective presentation and summary of the chapter, highlighting key aspects.

Structure and content[edit source]

A useful summary of chapter content is provided in this presentation. Theory and research are well integrated, and practical applications (e.g., types of meditation) are included. The flow is well organised.

Communication[edit source]

The presentation is delivered in a clear, confident, interesting voice. Slides were well prepared. Voice could have been slower (therefore reduce the amount of content - be more selective).

Sound and picture quality were both good. The presentation appears is well-prepared and presented on youtube.
