Most Stimulating Learning Experience

My life has been full of stimulating learning experiences, so it is hard to pick just one. I remember a history class in college that was taught by a professor who has a double masters in history and English literature. I think it was his focus on the story behind the dates that made this such an interesting class. He constantly drew connections between the past and present, tying in what we were learning with what was happening now. We had a major project that we had to present to the class. Instead of writing a paper, he had up make a poster display that had to illustrate the major historical trend we were presenting. I have never been an artist, but I remember enjoying putting together a visual display and teaching the class about it.

This class was stimulating because the teacher obviously had a passion about what he was teaching. He took us beyond memorizing dates and showed us the people and circumstances that shaped events over time. We were allowed to tap into more than our visual learning mode and experiment with recreating history artistically. All of these factors made for a facinating and stimulating learning experience!
“It is by teaching that we teach ourselves, by relating that we observe, by affirming that we examine, by showing that we look, by writing that we think, by pumping that we draw water into the well.” –Henri-Frederic Amiel (1821-1881), Swiss philosopher, poet
