Comments from the class I visited on 9/26/2008:
–I have a problem interpreting what exactly is said and remembering –I am just a little distracted sometimes –I often have trouble choosing the correct words to state what I mean –I have an unhealthy memory for name-face connection –I need visual, auditory, and touch information to clearly get across the point –From when I was little I experienced a speech problem also it manifests itself in verbal and auditory issues. I am able to hear what you say but it can’t be understood by me.
I’d like for my teachers to learn that it’s hard for me personally to write papers. The time it will take some people x3 is the time it will require me to write that isn’t editing time that is including. All of the knowledge I have had not been obtained by writing responses but by reading class notes plus some of this textbooks. Writing may be worth addressing in education and communication yet not at the cost of not learning the right answers to the relevant questions that have been posed so that the student must research the answers along with other classes.
Inspite of the undeniable fact that when I graduate i am going to owe > $25,000 in figuratively speaking that have taken care of my education, personally i think that that has taught me probably the most is what I actually receives a commission to accomplish … teach. I continue to pump so much money into this university to take classes which, at this point within my education, are irrelevant to life not in the classroom. Why do we pay a great deal for irrelevant knowledge?
Response to the video: 1. Sobering, enlightening, revealing, insightful what i would like my teachers to know about me as a learner 2. to understand that i could think, We have ideas, that I would like to be engaged, I want to be involved aided by the topic and issues in front of you (this class)|as a learner 2. to know that I can think, I have ideas, that I want to be engaged, I want to be involved with the topic and issues at hand (this class)what I want my teachers to know about me. I would like to contribute, be the cause, in addressing the presssing issues raised. I wish to be a participant in ideas that result in contribute and action in positive ways. I wish to understand that my life has purpose and meaning where my passion and talents can meet real needs.
I’d like them to know that I am as human as the high acheiving students. And that there are other factors besides laziness that affects grades.
Class discussions help a whole lot to keep me engaged with the material I work the hardest when my teachers expect a whole lot out of me Applying the material (in a lab or life setting) always helps the materials stick, even I appreciate being reminded of why the material is relevant if it’s just talking about a personal anecdote in class.
I learn through the use of the information–not through straight memorization My time is valuable–don’t waste it
1. They are wanted by me to know the way I learn also to be happy to meet my needs as a learner. I learn best information that is taking and putting it on. Learning by doing 2. As a graduate student I want my professors to carry on to create learning that is authentic assessment experiences. I would like to manage to use the information and learning products in my career.
1. I would really like my teachers to know that I am not a machine and that sometimes no matter what hard I try I cannot carry on with with things that are expected of me – sometimes my whole system crashes and I also need a “reset.” 2. I would like my teachers to understand that I have a life away from school too and that bare memorizations and no-stop work will likely not necessarily benefit me in a real-life.
–I feel a whole lot more motivated to learn once the professor exhibits much passion towards the subject matter whatever the class size –I also feel motivated when it appears as if the professor cares about us learning and doing well regardless of how hectic my schedule is. –Technology is a sword that is double-edged.
I wish to have the ability to have the ability to learn where so when I want to learn. Free us from this medieval way of learning in lecture halls and furiously taking notes we learn in class or read in class is something we will never be able to access in one form or another because it is no longer the case that what. Podcast some classes thus I can listen to them in the weekends, at night etc. I would like to discover more effectively, but there’s a disconnect b/w all of us.
Even though I attend all of my classes and seem prepared, I never study ahead in my classes and frequently, or even almost always, cram the write my paper for me night time before for an examination. I’m able to begin to see the picture that is big but We have difficulty seeing the important points that i will be always asked to present during examinations. I hate memorizing. It is a waste of time.
