What Does Learning Mean To You? – Western Sydney Univeristy

– I think learning is the most important
thing that people have and that’s why I chose it as a career, because if I was to look back at my life and see something
that I’d given to the world, I’d prefer it be education. – It’s… exactly… what maybe people couldn’t do before, which is just read a book
and write about it, or sit down and you’re allowed to
reflect and meditate on ideas. – Learning… See, that’s the thing.
When I first started uni, I thought learning was just about
reading something and understanding it, but it’s really not. I think learning
is about being critical, opening your mind, allowing yourself
to see things and question things, and I think gathering knowledge,
not just gathering knowledge to have it, but gathering knowledge
to go further with it. – I think learning is important
to build a future because students need to know
what’s going on around them, not just the content, but learning about the problems that are being faced
in the world, so like sustainability, things like that
really need to be taught to students so they can maybe…
They don’t have to fix it, but they can decide for themselves
what’s right and what’s wrong. – You know,
you’ve got these beliefs and principles and it’s not that you do away with them, but you edify upon them
and you transform them and you just… you learn to be OK with who you are.
It’s… I’ve never been so self-aware
of my own self-discovery than by doing this course. – It’s fantastic when you’re really
passionate about what you’re studying. It makes a world of difference when you’re really, really passionate
about it. It’s great. I love it. – It’s about
how you develop your own thoughts and that’s pretty incredible. It’s like laidback, in a way.
