I first thought about the concept of flow when I skimmed through a book called 'Flow' by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. In this first reflection paper, I think about how the concept of flow relates to learning, and how I might incorporate flow theory into my current role as a trainer.
My thoughts about the importance of the affective domain on learning is highlighted in the second reflection paper below. In addition to writing this paper, I also had the opportunity to reflect on emotion and learning in one of the discussion forums in the 3250 course. I have always believed that an emotional connection to the learning is very important for adult learners. I appreciated this opportunity to reflect more about the topic, and to think about how the Learning Center of which I am part of could think more about the affective domain when developing learning objectives for our courses.
I found I was most engaged in the third reflection paper on the power of introversion. I enjoyed the Ted Talk presentation by Susan Cain and have ordered her book called 'Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking' so I can further explore this topic. After doing this reflection paper, I plan to be more deliberate around how to support and encourage introverts/introversion in the classroom. I also plan to think about how my tendency toward introversion can help me become a better trainer.
