reality, what knowledge is and how it is formed, and the value of knowledge. This is
generally called one’s worldview or philosophical paradigm. Recognizing, understanding,
and being able to identify your own worldview is an essential component in articulating
your beliefs about college students and how you facilitate students’ learning, growth, and
development.Your reflection should be guided by the reading from the Abes (2016) New
Directions in Student Services chapter, “Situating paradigms in student development
theory” (provided to you as a reading in Module 2). Your reflection should address the
following questions:1. What do you believe is the nature of reality?2. What is the aim of the
research? What should it enable people to do?3. How do you know what is true?4. What are
your beliefs about objectivity?5. What are the characteristics of good research?6. What is
the role of the researcher?7. How is knowledge gained?8. What makes information valid?9.
