When telling a person about my learning experience in my class with Ashford University it would be all good things. Taking a class on line was a challenge at the beginning. I was very nervous, because I had been out of school since 1986. Ashford made it very easy for me by putting me in a Orientation class. Taking this Orientation class was the best thing for me, before I started my regular classes. Then in order to be successful in passing a class, you have to be very determined. You also have to stay very focus, which was hard to do at first. A person has to set aside so many hours blocked off to make sure you are able to complete your assignments that are due. Since I have started class, I have learned that my study habits had to changed. There is no way I could pass my classes, with the study habits I use to have. When we took our LCI assessments, I learned that I didn’t like taking risk. I found out that, I rather replace something that is broken than take it apart and see why it’s not working. I must say the true meaning to word learning is getting knowledge through being taught about something new.
While learning, I found out that I was a dynamic learner. I learn by asking question in order to get an understanding. There are times I need step by step in understanding also. I am a person who also learns with examples and hands on. I need a break down of clear instructions. Once I have these things I can proceed with my duties or task. With my four learning patterns, I use sequence, precision and confluence more that technical. In my everyday life, I like order, examples, detail and brainstorm.
When doing my discussion I use sequence because, I need order and I have to review to make sure I understand. It is very important that that I have a good understanding of what my instructor wants. In dealing with my assignments and quizzes. I am looking for detail and order. It’s very important also. I become a intentional learner by staying focus and being a deep reader.
While learning through my challenges, I found out a lot on how I learn. When it came to using FIT. I was amazed in how , I was to use it. To better FIT in the future, I learned that I don’t have to increase my Forge. I found out that, I would learn to use tether in the future because of my first use with my learning patterns. In learning about the FIT, I learned that it deals with the type of self-regulation that I need.
