50568040 Yeung Yuk Ling, Grace How I learn? I am glad to share my learning experience in my University life. My learning experience is quite different from my secondary life since tertiary life gives me more time and more freedom. Thus, self-motivation is becoming more important. If you are self-motivated and eager to learn, you will find learning in the tedious academic studies very interesting. Being self-motivated to learn is essential to my academic studies. In my studies, I usually prepare well before the lectures. It will give you a brief idea of what will be going to taught in the lectures. Also, paying attention during the lectures and tutorials can help me to understand the topics better. I won’t skip any of the lectures and tutorials since I believe that each lecture or tutorial is worthwhile to my studies. Moreover, attending the classes can provide you opportunity to raise questions to the lecturers. During weekends, I will read the relevant chapters in the textbooks. When I faced the difficulties in understanding the topic, I will then go to the library to look up the related textbooks about a particular topic. By finding out the solutions by myself, I have a better understanding and memory about the relevant topics. I enjoyed a lot in the process of finding out the solutions by myself. In addition, I do the assignments by myself. Sometimes, the questions in the examinations are similar to the assignments. Doing assignments provides a mean to familiar with the examination questions and therefore get a better results afterwards. Besides academic studies, I find that self-motivation is important to our learning in social life. Most university students haven’t developed a habit of reading newspaper or online news everyday. Reading newspaper everyday is the easiest way to know exactly what happened in the world. I used to read newspaper everyday since last years by subscribing Hong Kong Economics Times. It equips me the practical application of the financial knowledge in the textbooks. I also become familiar with both the local and global news, especially the financial news. A proper time management is a prerequisite for self-motivation in learning. Even though you are eager to learn, you only have 24 hours to learn in each day. Sometime, the time is even less when you are busy or stuffed with assignments or projects in your schedule. So, it should have a good planning before learning. I used to have a weekly study schedule in each semester. For example, I would read four chapters of textbook in each day in the revision period. It is better to have a planning because I wouldn’t need to finish reading the textbooks in a hurry during that period. Learning is an endless process. We do not have time to acquire all the knowledge. Being self-motivated in learning by managing time properly, you will find learning interesting.
