Me, As A Learner

  • What motivates you to learn? Sometimes the motivation is curiosity and other times it is based on need.

  • What must you have in order for your learning to be successful? I must have time to process, and I need a goal or understand the end product.

  • What causes you to pay attention, even if the topic you’re studying is not your favorite? I'll pay attention better when the pacing is comfortable and there is a chance for collaboration.

  • What makes you shut down? I shut down when the topic is too challenging to comprehend in a given time period.

  • How can we create or avoid these conditions in our learning community? I don't think we'll be engaging with topics that will be too challenging to comprehend so it'll be fine.
