#, Learning Outcomes of Try College 101 Course
When I started this course I didn’t have any idea what type of learner I was. In Chapter 1 of the College Success textbook it mentioned the different types of learners. Each individual has a learning style. Here are the eight types verbal, logical, visual, kinesthetic, rhythmic, interpersonal, intrapersonal and naturalist. I happen to be a visual learner which means I understand better if I see exactly what is expected of me. For example, using diagrams, Power Point slideshows and video podcast are some of the best ways for me to learn and remember the material.
Meanwhile, as I read further I got more intrigued on how college seem to have so many resources. If you have any sort of problem they have different offices and centers to assist you. Knowing you have that support system make you want to achieve the goal you are aiming for more. Here are some essential offices:
- Academic Advising Office - this office guide you to choose your courses and plan your program and degree. 2. Counseling Office - this office helps with personal problems,including health, stress management and interpersonal issues and much more. 3. Financial Aid Office - this office provides information on ways to pay for your education. 4. Tutoring or Skills Centers - this is a place where students can go for additional help for their courses.
Often we don’t have enough time in a day to do everything we want to.I have found it’s not true at all. This textbook has taught me how to manage my time effectively. Writing your goals and spacing them out will help you a whole lot, You think you can’t cut a few things short but you can. Limiting your time with friends, lessen your time on the computer and reduce your television watching are the most popular time consuming activities.
This course is teaching me how to plan to be a successful student. It is extremely important to be prepared for college. Preparation, dedication and organization are truly good qualities to inherit while in college. As for me I have been out of school for years and this course is very informable. Things have definitely changed a lot since I was in school. There are more resources to get you through college. My goal is to become an excellent student who will accomplish everything she puts her mind to. Furthermore, I am almost halfway through this course and I feel I can achieve anything.
