Plan for Success: Knowing Yourself and Setting Goals
Sometimes it is helpful to do some self-evaluation, before moving to the planning part of the Learning Cycle. To help you in this process, this chapter begins with the evaluation part of the Learning Cycle. Before you begin your planning, you will consider where you are now. What strategies do you already know how to use? What are your strengths as a learner? What do you hope to improve?
The information from your evaluation will inform your goal setting and planning for the semester ahead.
By the end of this chapter, you will be able to:
- Evaluate your current learning skills and strengths using the Multiple Intelligences framework.
- Evaluate your current study strategies and identify new skills you hope to gain.
- Set your learning goals.
