The Value of Orientation Activities Participating in orientation activities provide insights into the roles and responsibilities you are to assume as well as exposing you initially to the nature of your course of study and the supporting systems and conditions that are in place for you to succeed. If you have been learning in settings that require you to rely on others to make decisions about how you will learn, the pace of the process and the progress you are making, then chances are that you will transfer this practice in other settings even if they require you to be the one who leads in the areas mentioned earlier. If you lack basic information about yourself especially as it relates to learning, chances are you will encounter difficulties that could have been avoided because you did not realize what you needed to do to play your role in the learning process.

Further Exploration for Developing your Profile Who you are is communicated by your response or reaction to the tasks and this was influenced by your beliefs about learning and your role as a learner as well as your attitude towards learning. By compiling the information about yourself the learner-person, you can prepare what is called a PERSONAL LEARNER PROFILE. This knowledge of yourself however, should include your strengths and limitations or gaps in order for you to determine your ability to succeed as well as to determine the areas of your profile that need to be improved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
