Achieving Success through Educational Goals

Learning takes place in various ways. We have discussed the concepts of visual learning, auditory learning, and kinesthetic learning. As a child, we learned by all three methods. As an adult learner, we tend to favor one method over the others.

If it has been many years since you were placed in a serious learning situation, you may want to go back in time and review and analyze what used to work for you as a young learner. You should determine the type of learner you are and extract from previous learning experiences those situations and activities that were very positive. What was it that made the learning experience meaningful? You also can learn from your earlier negative experiences.

To achieve success, the adult learner must be ready to establish educational goals, and make changes to adapt to various learning activities and situations. Adaptation means survival. Fail to adapt and the learning light is extinguished.
