Learning Reflection

Improved Essays
Learning is a process in which we use our experiences to handle different situations. Learning is when we gather information and storing it in our memory for convenient use. Like for example, every time we use our smart phones to check NBA scores, weather forecast, daily news, and etc., we are taking basic steps in the learning process. This class has taught me the real meaning of learning. I have learned that learning involves taking in the world around you and connecting to what you are experiencing; making sense of it; and using critical thinking skills and good sound judgment in order to respond appropriately to any class assignment, job task, or opportunity to interact with other people. Learning is essential to every one of us. Learning …show more content…
Every time we use new knowledge and skills in our work place, classroom, with our family or within ourselves, we are actively learning (Johnston, 2013). Each of us has different approach to doing a specific task. This is because we all have different learning patterns. The make-up of our learning patterns are composed of sequence, precision, technical reasoning, and confluence. Taking learning connections inventory enables us to know how we use each pattern (Johnston, 2013). My learning connection inventory results are: sequence 22 (use as needed), precision 25 (use first), technical reasoning 24 (use as needed), and confluence 23 (use as needed). I use sequence as needed. Sequence is very important in our everyday life. I organize my schedule, my work space, my personal things, and my life space when I need to. I am not really an organized person. I plan schedules; organize stuffs; and do my assignment a head of time when I need to. At home, I organize my stuff whenever we are expecting visitors or if it is really necessary. When it comes to doing my assignments, I only do it a head …show more content…
Applying self-regulation and metacognition is very important in order to overcome those challenges. Self-regulating will enable us to examine our own thoughts and behavior in order for us to determine which of them causing us to be unproductive. Through self-regulation, we will able to come up an alternative thoughts and behaviors that will lead us to a successful learning outcome. On the other hand, metacognition is also very essential. To be an intentional learner we need to notice, understand and regulate our thoughts and behavior before, during, and after a learning experience. Our learning patterns affects as how we metacognate. There are action phases of metacognition. These are mull, connect, rehearse, attend, express, assess, reflect, and revisit. FITting our learning patterns belongs to the phase II of metacognition patterns (Johnston, 2013). FIT is an acronym for Forge (avoid), Intensify (use as needed), and Tether (use first). We forged when we avoid using the pattern. We intensify when we use the pattern as needed. And we tether when we use the pattern first. FITting will enable us to accomplish our task or be successful in college. I have been busy now at work and I am having a hard time managing my time between my work and my online class. I think that I need to intensify my sequence in order for me to be back on track. Organizing my schedule, my work space, and my life space is what I

    What is learning, you ask. Learning isn’t just about memorizing information. Learning involves you taking in the world around you and connecting to what you are experiencing. It then requires that you make sense of the experience – that you come to an understanding of it, (Intentional Learning for College Success, chapter 1). In order to learn you have to be intentional. Prior to this course I thought learning was simply gaining knowledge, however it’s much more than that. I’ve learned that learning requires you to read, write and think critically. I’ve also learned that we all have learning patterns, and by utilizing these learning patterns we can be successful learners. I now have a better understanding of why I wasn’t a successful…

    Learning can be interpreted in many ways to different individuals, although to me learning is about gaining knowledge and embracing every experience encountered and linking it to any task. Also I would explain that being open minded is a strong attribute to apply during the learning process. During my week one I stated that learning is to open and broaden an individual’s mind on subjects to gain knowledge or skills, and I’ve grown to realize its more than that. People can learn using different methods and be more responsive to one rather than the other.…

    Taking this class has been the true definition of Learning. “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Henry Ford. That was the quote I referred to the first week of class. It meant learning is a constant mind stimulant that involves a Sequence, Precision, Technical Reasoning, and Confluence Learning Pattern. Sequence is learning well with labels, alphabetical, or organization. Precision is understanding with exact information, and not feeling the need to skim while reading, rather you read all of the detailed aspects of the assignment given. Technical Reasoning is a Learning Pattern that you tend to enjoy problem solving, building, or doing things hands on to experience what is going…

    To fully commit to improving on my weakness, I plan on incorporating my supervisor as well as my three Staff Sergeants I supervised. I will also share my timeline for goal attainment and the above mentioned actions items with them. Furthermore, I will ask them to take notes of my actions and behaviors to assist in providing me feedback on my progress. Every 90 days for the next nine months I plan on asking for an honest 360-degree feedback from my supervisor and my three Staff Sergeants to measure progression or set-backs. I feel that including my supervisor and three Staff Sergeants is realistic because they are older and mature than your typical Lieutenant and Staff Sergeant. Additionally, I believe gaining honest feedback from these…

    This semester has been a whirlwind. I learned some strengths that I have, as well as some weaknesses, but all in all I’ve enjoyed every bit of this class. Writing the first essay of the semester I found myself unsure and uncomfortable with writing college level essays, but now after submitting my fourth essay I am much more confident. From learning proper MLA in-text citations, to focusing my essays to make a clear point, to bettering my ability to provide proper support for my argument; my knowledge has expanded more than I could have imagined.…

    Heron (1999) describes learning as having four distinct yet interdependent forms which inform, support, and enhance one another. The first form is practical learning, which entails learning how to do something and is manifested in the competent practice of that skill. Heron describes the first level as the physical level of learning, where one has to show the willingness to learn. The second form involves conceptual learning, which entails learning about something (for example, someone saying “I want to learn about leadership”). This is the intellectual, verbal, and conceptual level of learning, pronounced in statements and propositions. Conceptual learning emphasises the kinds of things one is able to do with the information one has acquired.…

    A Learning theory is a framework describing how information is processed and absorbed by our minds. Behavioural, personal and environmental factors, as well as previous experiences, all play a part in our understanding. They explain how different factors can help learners process and recall information, suggesting that as we learn we also change the way we perceive our surroundings and the way we interact with others.…

    The concepts delivered throughout the management problem-solving course have provided me with valuable simulated real-life experiences which can be applied in my everyday work life as a HR Administrator with aspirations of progressing my career. The course delivery was such that as a student, I was able to use my existing knowledge and skills, in addition to that of my peers, to analyse and explore complex organisational problems. This course has challenged the way I think and deepened my understanding of the problem-solving process, which has enabled me to perceive issues from new perspectives, I once would not have considered. Additionally, it has also allowed me to make explicit and authentic connections between the course content and my…
