Everyone has their own learning styles. And it also varies by topic. For instance, when I do research on something Baha’i Faith-related, I dive in, compile everything in a Word document, and then read over later. With business, I take notes as I read and make outlines.
The last 4 years of university have taught me some important things about my learning style. I actually pay attention when the professor engages the students in conversation and talks about real-world cases. I prefer to study with other people (even if we’re studying different materials).
The interesting phenomenon at my school (and maybe this is reserved to the business majors) is that people do not study together. I’ve had very few opportunities to form study groups. It is a commuter school, and most people work part/full-time jobs, so this is all understandable, but frustrating nonetheless.
On another note, many of my management professors insist that we dress professionally for our presentations. I have no argument against it, I think it is a good idea. It is easy to tell who the business students are on campus because we’re all walking around in snazzy suits and button-down shirts. It is almost like a uniform.
Speaking of presentations, I’m going to give one in 15 minutes. We’re gonna rock that joint. um yeah. 😉
