Investing in Positive Learning Experiences

Survival = Understanding + Skills + Attitude

The first two chapters of this book discussed motivation and attitude toward learning, as well as our learning profiles. Subsequent chapters will focus on the development or redevelopment of learning skills. This chapter will deal primarily with adapting to the existing learning and educational systems.

As we have all heard, history repeats itself. Think back to a specific learning situation when you were a child or a young adult. Why did you enjoy this learning situation? Why was it successful? What was your motivation or attitude toward this learning activity?

Attempting to analyze situations such as this, where successful and positive learning has taken place, may help you to adapt a current learning experience and thus realize a more positive return on your learning investment.
