Can you describe the way you currently learn taught course material?

Having considered the lecture on Wednesday and looking back over my academic experience, I think I can safely say that I have primarily been a 'surface rational' learner. I have tended to cram for exams and then forget the information learnt very quickly, however this approach has been successful in lower level examinations and my neuroscience degree. My desire to become a 'deep learner' is one of the primary reasons I applied to medicine, as I feel that the responsibility of knowing that the information you are learning could one day save someones life or make them feel better will result in a vastly different attitude to learning. Additionally, I hope that i find the majority of the work interesting and stimulating in its own right which has the effect of making me a deep learner, as happened during my intellectually challenging dissertation in my first degree.
