Then, in a five-paragraph essay that is two to three pages in length, please address the following:
- Paragraph 1: How would you explain the concept of learning to someone who has not taken this class? In Week 1 you were asked to define the term learning. Review the explanations given in the textbook and look back at your original definition. Compare that definition with what you know now. What would you change or add to your original response? How has your view of learning changed as a result of this class?
- Paragraph 2: List your Learning Patterns and describe how you used them to your advantage to be successful in this course. What strategies did you use to complete readings, discussions, assignments, and quizzes? Connect each strategy with the corresponding Learning Pattern(s).
- Paragraph 3: Describe the challenges that you may face in the online classroom due to your unique combination of Learning Patterns. How will you self-regulate your Learning Patterns to overcome these challenges and what strategies and resources will you use to be a more intentional learner in future courses?
- Paragraph 4: Imagine you are applying for your dream job. The interviewer says, “I see you’ve taken EXP 105.” Explain to the interviewer the three most important things you learned in the course and how your knowledge of those concepts can help you in the work environment. In other words, what will you bring to the table as a future employee?
- Paragraph 5: Reflect on the past five weeks and describe what you enjoyed most about this class and what you would change about the class. What were your expectations when you began this course? Considering the course content, online learning platform, and interactions with your peers and instructor, were your expectations met? Why, or why not?
