I started the Basic Study Course feeling enthusiastic and bright, ready to learn how to study. However, my very first barrier came into play when I decided it was "too easy." I skipped through the first two units. Got to the first essay and realized that I had no clue as to what they were asking. I actually hit the blank of a misunderstood word! I had my doubts regarding this concept initially so. I applied the word clearing, even although I really didn't know WHAT word tripped me up, but I cleared about six words, and began to understand things better.
Prior to this course, I would have reread the material until I found the CONCEPT I didn't get. Now I KNOW how to handle this scenario in future. I LOVE researching, but now I can actually begin to absorb and apply the stuff I discover, and I have the key to unlocking understanding of the topics, whatever they may be! (Just clear the misunderstoods!)
Aside from word clearing, having a clearer view of the processes used in courses, is really going to help me build confidence for my future courses. The best thing I've noticed about this study, is that I can ACTUALLY see improvement in my approach to learning (and teaching) things. Thank you AOGP Team!"
