ENTRY 23 I have changed as a learner in many ways from taking this course. I have developed stronger study habits and gained a lot of information on how our minds work, and take in information to change it to memory. Some skills that I have developed are to avoid distractions while studying. I used to be one of those students who thought I could study with background music or with the TV on, and have no harm done to my studying, however its been proven to me, with my own results in CogLab that it does harm my studying. As for some feedback, I want to let you know that you are a great teacher, possibly one of my favorite so far. I enjoy the set up of your classes, with the take home test, and the option of doing as many homework assignments as you want (but enough to pass the class). This was very helpful when I had busy or just plain bad days. I personally have learned a lot from this class and have developed my knowledge of conditioning with Sniffy, or that we can broaden our knowledge with CogLab. Group activities were useful and helped build relationships with other students. In particular I was a big fan of CogLab. Sniffy was something fun and different, but with CogLab we were able to run these test on ourselves. After the experiment was done, we were able to view our data and draw conclusions. Unlike Sniffy, the results were computer generated to teach us a lesson, however with CogLab these were our own personal results. For example, I proved to myself that having the TV on or music playing while I study actually does harm my information intake. To any new students coming into this course I would suggest to them to read the book before class that day, and to do more homework assignments than not. I know I slipped with reading the book, and I took advantage of the fact that we didn’t

have to do every assignment. Also they should attend every class. Lot of information takes place during each class and it will probably do them harm if they miss a class. I am proud of myself to say that I made it to every class, except for leaving one early for not feeling well. That is rare for me to do. These students will succeed if they attend all the classes. Lastly I want to let you know that you are a fun teacher who interacts with your students. You let the students ask questions, and open the floor for discussion. I have found that characteristic in teachers to be slightly rare. When the students get to participate it makes them feel smarter, and then the teacher isn’t dragging on the class with a lecture. In my opinion I don’t think you need to change much for future students. The only thing I would ask for is that you informed us when the test questions were on
