Emotions play a significant role in learning. If you can harness positive emotions and enthusiasm for your learning, you will be able to get the most out of your studies. Remember tutor comments are designed to help you improve. If you view comments positively and constructively, you will be able to take more information on board.
To get the most out of your assignments, look for patterns in assignment feedback, decide on the most important improvement to focus on and create an action plan of what you are going to do.
Learning takes place all the time. Talking to your peers can give you a different perspective on an issue and help you improve your communication skills. When giving feedback to peers, use language which clearly indicates you are explaining your understanding or opinions, rather than providing absolute answers. Explain what is good about your partner's work as well as raising any questions or doubts you might have. When receiving feedback from peers, keep an open mind and listen carefully to what they say and think. Their comments will help you judge how effectively you are communicating your message.
