Explain what the phrase “taking ownership of your learning” means to you.

EXPLAIN THE IMPORTANCE OF APPLYING THE KNOWLEDGE LEARNED IN THE CLASSROOM TO CONTINUED PERSONAL AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL.

I need a 320-word paper based on the following:
1. Explain what the phrase “taking ownership of your learning” means to you.
2. To complete this assignment address the following using your own experiences.
· Explain how you set personal educational goals and monitor your own progress.
· Are you self-motivated to learn and understand; not only driven by grades or external praise?
· Do you push yourself to think deeper about issues and draw connections to your personal, academic, and professional lives?
· How do you view the instructor? Do you view the instructor as a guide, but yourself as the pursuer of deeper understanding? Do you consider the instructor the expert and you as the novice?
· Do you see a value in collaborative learning, pursuing knowledge through peer engagement and feedback?  Do you see a difference in how deeply you explore a topic when you are alone vs. when you’re working in a group?
· What is your understanding of the scope of the University, its departments, and its learning philosophy and approach?
· Explain the importance of applying the knowledge learned in the classroom to continued personal and career development potential.
