GU299 Week 8 Assignment: Reflecting on Learning

Renee Landers

Grantham University


In this paper, I will be talking about my learning experience here at Grantham University along with what I have learned in this course. I will discuss What I have learned about the world around me,How I will create and maintain relationships with others, what I have learned about myself and the way I learn and what have I learned about my responsibility to others. In each section I plan to elaborate on me learning experiences and my everyday life.

What have you learned about the world around you?

This course has been so rewarding and has taught me a lot about life and how I think. Now as an adult, you think that you know everything there is, and that is not true. I have looked at the world in my own perspective and that you cannot do. For example, when someone shows you a face that might not agree with what you are saying, does not mean that they don’t agree, they’re probably just wondering how did you get that answer. This course has helped me to understand the world and the people who reside in it. It has taught me how to empower myself, my rights and the things I need to do to be successful in this world. It has changed the way I look at life.

What have you learned about creating and maintaining relationships with others?

Relationships are based on how you treat someone and you and the other person and or organization will need to have an understanding that are the same. You must be faithful in everything you do including your relationships and everything will fall into place. It is easy forming a good relationship, but it’s up to you to keep it in line and trustworthy.

What have you learned about yourself and the way you learn?

I have learned that it is ok to make mistakes, I have really downed myself when a mistake has happened and it was caused by me. Because as we all know we want to be professions in all that we do. But I’m here to tell you that it is ok to make a mistake because you learn from your mistakes. One thing about me I am a self-learner I do better hands on, when you give me instructions on a piece of paper I will not understand it. Show me how it is done and I will go from there. For example, no one at my job wanted to do what I do now because it was new system and they had never used it before. So was I, but we did one day of training and I mastered it. Now that is my job, I enter in all the data for children who come into state custody and I do it well.You must do what is best for you as far as learning something, that is the best way that you will be able to conquer it.

What have you learned about responsibility to others?

Responsibilities play a different role in different situations, but you musthave held responsible in all that you do. But in all aspects, you want to work for the betterment of everyone, create opportunities when they arise and always help someone out in need even if it’s just a listening ear. You never know what a person is going through and by you lending an ear can be so amazing. It takes one kind gesture to change a situation and I want be involved in all the kindness. For example, I paid it forward in the store just the other day and the look and the young man’s face was priceless. He stated that “this has never happened to me” and I said “wellI’m glad I was here for you to experience it”.

What more do you need to know?

As college students and graduates, I never knew how much more wisdom you can gain. Some people learn off strictly life, but to have a college education it gives you more insight on the situation. Since attending Grantham I have learned to be more sensitive to other people feelings and why he or she may react to certain situations. I have learned to no be judgmental, because of course you would not want them to be judgmental to. But not even that, you’re putting up a sign saying his or opinion does not matter. Be careful how we treat each other because you don’t want it to bite you.


The way to focus the aspect along with how we revive yourself, approaches through which a person can attain inner peace and so on. The main goal is to better for yourself and the next person. With doing this a lot of things would not be happening in this world. It can be a trickle-downeffect and before you know it everyone would be helping each other out. Each one teach one is my model for the better.
