Confidence in Yourself as a Learner [CLO: 2]. 1st Post Due by Day 3.
Prepare: As Johnston (2013) notes in section 1.4 of your textbook, “Your thoughts, actions, and feelings play key roles in how you feel about yourself as a learner before, during, and after completing a learning task” (para. 17). These learning processes can give you a sense of confidence or fill you with dread as you consider the task that lies before you. In order to be an intentional learner, you need to recognize the powerful role your learning processes play and how to control and direct them before they control you.
Carefully read the true story of David in section 1.4 of of your textbook and watch the video Eddie Henderson: A leap toward a better future – Ashford University, about Ashford University student Eddie Henderson.
Reflect: As you begin your studies at Ashford University, what concerns do you have regarding your learning and achievement as a college student? How do your concerns relate to David’s or Eddie’s college experience? Now think of a time when you found yourself in a learning situation (e.g., a previous school experience or a new job) where you felt frustrated because you weren’t successful.
Write: Keeping in mind the learning situation you reflected on, address the following in your response:
• Share how your concerns relate to David and/or Eddie’s experience.
• Describe the learning situation and identify the possible reasons why you weren’t successful.
• What could you have done differently to reduce your frustration and increase your chances of success?
• What did you learn from the experience that can help you be successful if you face a similar situation
