Follow–up on Effective learning strategies
Workshop Tutor: Gillian Marriot
Heres a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points
- Being Motivated
Being motivated is something i believe one of the most crucial action points for myself and my studies. The reason being i am here doing my masters while my friends and my family members are back in India, having left everything behind and to study independently in a new country is something that can let you back by thinking about the past and missing out on friends and family members specially when you have never stayed alone without them!
- Having a positive state of mind
Always having a positive state of mind helps and i myself always try to have a positive state of mind, having which can see that my job is half done just because of the kind off approach i have towards a particular task. I believe, leaving all the negative things and thought behind and approaching towards a task with the willingness and the will, will always get you the task done more efficiently than before.
- Cream Strategy
Activeness is one of the main action points which according to me suits me the most. The weather in England is very lousy and lazy and thus is one particular action point on which i am focussing the most at this point of time. I try to exercise daily, if not then go for long walks around the university and breathe fresh oxygen so that i am always active all the time to do my work on time and better than before.
- Setting up priorities
The month of november which is almost the last month of the term before christmas vacations had a series of exams and submissions which i had to complete effectively and submit on time. Thus i noticed using the CREAM strategies helped me a lot in being time bound and effective in submitting all the assignments on time. I hope to take it up in the future for the terms to come!
I’m pleased to read you feel your CREAM strategies were effective. However, as per my previous comment in response to your last blog, I do not feel that you have clearly identified the strategies you were adopting following the workshop or reflected on how your action plan has affected your learning. To help you in this, please could you re-read my second blog comment and structure your next blog around the questions I asked? I think this would help you to produce a more reflective blog. Learning from reflection involves identifying what went well & not so well, the reasons why this was the case, and what you wish / need to do in order to ensure a more positive outcome in the future if some things did not go as well as you would have liked. This may mean identifying new knowledge or new skills you need to acquire and how you would go about acquiring these.
