Blog Post #1- What About EDM310?
I have heard from others who have previously taken this course who have said that there is a lot of work in EDM310. One of my friends who took the class in the fall of 2013 told me that the work is not hard its just a lot of it. She said what kept her on track was staying ahead, because if you get behind it is hard to catch up. I fear that I may not correctly understand an assignment and do the assignment wrong. I can honestly say that I have never taken a course like EDM310 in high school or college. In my previous college courses all of my instructors taught or gave an outline of everything I needed to know. In EDM310 we are here to learn and teach ourselves with the assistance of the teaching staff. I believe that this method of learning is more rewarding, because if there is something you do not know, you learn and teach yourself and when someone does not understand you will know how to explain it to them because you have taught yourself. I think the most difficult thing in EDM310 for me will be not overwhelming myself when I find myself not understanding how to do something. The best way for me to address this difficult aspect is by staying calm and going to the lab when I need help and asking questions when I do not understand. Although I have already overwhelmed myself, I look forward to the rest of this summer semester and becoming a more independent learner.
