Why this blog?

My life has been punctuated with personal experiences of really poor learning! Really Poor Learning! These include how I’ve prepared and engaged with materials in school and in college, how I’ve applied my knowledge to wider contexts as well as a whole host of other issues. But I’d imagine I’m not the only person with such experiences, because very few people have learned to learn properly. This is the journey I’m currently on - to learn how to learn while applying it to my own study. This blog is aimed at helping me gather my thoughts and reflect of the areas I am studying. I guess it’s a little like homework, but without the threat of detention or a phone call home! Of course, everything is public. So if you want to check in every now and then perhaps my experiences can help you learn better. And if you have any questions or comments send me a message.
