Identifying Your Learning Patterns
Prepare: Before attempting this discussion, please be sure you have completed the Learning Connections Inventory (LCI), then carefully read Chapter 2 and the Week Two Instructor Guidance.
Reflect: As stated by your textbook author, “The knowledge of your Learning Patterns provides you with an explanation of how you learn, not an excuse for failing to put forth the effort to learn.” Take some time to think about what you learned about yourself based on your results from the LCI.
Write: In complete sentences and a minimum of 250 words, address the following:
- List the numeric scores and level of use (Use First, Use as Needed, or Avoid) for each of the four Learning Patterns, then identify whether you are a Dynamic, Bridge, or Strong-willed Learner.
- Describe a specific time when you used each Pattern to accomplish a task. Your examples may be from your academic, personal, or professional experiences. Each example should provide a vivid example of how you Use First, Use as Needed, or Avoid the Pattern. For instance: I created color-coded folders for every week of this class. For the assignment later this week, a more general example is appropriate: I am a highly-organized person and have strategies I use to keep my life in order.
- Analyze how the awareness of your Learning Patterns may help you in school, work, and/or personal relationships. Explain how can you use this knowledge to be more intentional in these areas.
Respond to Peers: Review your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. Consider comparing and contrasting how you use your Learning Patterns with how your peers use them. How can your classmates use their Learning Patterns to be more successful in daily life activities? Each response should be a minimum of 50 words.
