Individuals assess their learning styles differently. Self-Awareness allows learners to determine their preferred learning style and how to maximize it. Each person will have a different style of learning and a way that they prefer to learn. They may also be more prone to distractions. It’s obvious that, when I work alone and with minimal interruptions, I am more likely to learn. In a busy work environment, I am easily distracted.
My Self-Awareness involves taking my time and focusing me on important documents like this course. I am a hardworking individual who is passionate about my job. I have a hands-on approach. I find this difficult at times, especially when I need time to finish my work. It is important that I work in a peaceful environment, free of distractions. This will allow me to achieve my goals and to learn more effectively. Working from home allows me to focus on my work and be more productive.
Everyone has a different style of learning. You can self-evaluate to find out what you like best. My style of learning involves gathering lots of facts and evidence, either through research or note-taking. To ensure the accuracy of my information, I ask many questions. My laid-back personality helps me to maintain a stress-free learning environment and ensures that I am able to learn in a stress-free manner.
Each person works differently. A neat office equals an organized mind. Others may learn more effectively through visual, auditory or kinesthetic means. Some people may choose to write down their thoughts or share them with others. I’m more of a hands-on learner who likes to combine the latest research with a more active approach. You need to make sure that you are living a healthy life to be able perform well in your daily role.
The strategies that each person uses to improve their memory will be different. Mind mapping, mind games, quizzes and other activities can help sharpen your mind so that you have a good memory for each subject. I read, research and use mind maps with notes in order to remember and improve my memory. My memory is often improved by removing myself completely from the scenario, evaluating it on my terms and researching the facts. My memory seems to improve when I take a more relaxed approach. The information becomes more ingrained. When I am organised and have a structure, my mind is clear and it’s easy to learn.
It is crucial to be able collate all the information you store in order to create a logical structure. Documentation is organized in colour-coded folders, with monthly divisions and a front page. To ensure that you and other users have a clear structure, it is essential to collect all the information. All documents must be kept in a secure place and stored efficiently (GDPR). As a manager, I think it’s important to find a way to store and collate information in a way that makes sense to other people. I’m a fan of being organised. Each file has a list at the top that explains what it contains, when, where, etc. It is also helpful to other users who can then find the information more easily.
In evaluating online information it is essential to check the validity, recentness and accuracy of any information. It is essential that you document and record all evidence in your files, such as statements, supervisions, and investigations. All documents need to be signed by both the writer as well as management. Then, they should be stored in a cabinet that is locked. It’s important to evaluate yourself to show any future improvements and improve your learning styles. Also, it is good to look at how others are doing. It is crucial to give feedback and work with others.
To conclude, being organised is key to a successful study session. It is best to study in a calm, quiet place like my home or office where you can focus. It is helpful to keep a pad of paper nearby so that you can take notes. Then, when the time comes to put it all together and produce your work, you can go back and review what was written. I keep the work area clean, free from distractions like TV, phones etc. and use my laptop for any research I need to do. I prefer to write out as much detail as possible on the task before starting. I like to gather as much information as possible before starting to write an essay. It is not uncommon for me to spend a number of hours collecting information over the course of several days in order to examine the data from various perspectives, before writing an assignment. Once I start, it is hard to stop. When you are prepared and organized, the words flow. I prefer to drink a beverage and not be disturbed.
