Framework for Learning

'We hope you will become individuals of noble character, “genuine gold.”'

President John S. Tanner

Student Learning Process

Prepare

To be successful, preparation is key. Before class, study the course material and develop a solid understanding of it. Try to construct an understanding of the big picture and how each of the ideas and concepts relate to each other. Where appropriate use study groups to improve yours and others understanding of the material.

Engage

When attending class actively participate in discussions and ask questions. Test your ideas out with others and be open to their ideas and insights as well. As you leave class ask yourself, "Was class better because I was there today?"

Improve

Reflect on learning experiences and allow them to shape you into a more complete person; be willing to change your position or perspective on a certain subject. Take new risks and seek further opportunities to learn.

As a faithful learner, you place the word of God above the wisdom of the world (2 Nephi 9:28-29).

CHARITABLE STUDENT

DILIGENT STUDENT
As a diligent learner, you are active in the learning process, take responsibility for your own learning, and do many good things of your own free will (DC 58:27). You do not passively wait for others to teach you, but are anxiously engaged in understanding truth. As a result, you find great joy and satisfaction in learning(Alma 32: 41-43).
