What do OUM tutors think of learning? Read on
and find out.
Learning has never been about the passive absorption of
knowledge. Rather, it is all about acquiring new knowledge
and skills and learning to apply them in analysing and
evaluating information in our daily lives. Today, we see
the need for “interaction” for learning to happen. By this,
I mean interaction between the learner and the material/
content/module. This interaction is said to facilitate the
linking of new knowledge with previous understanding. So,
the challenge for us in OUM is to ensure that the content we
provide will always have a high element of “interactivity”-
interesting, relevant to the workplace and sufficiently
challenging to the learner.

Everyone should enjoy learning because it is fun. By
learning, we can boost our powerful mind’s ability to solve
problems or create new things. Everyone should understand
his or her own learning style. People who understand and
practise their learning style in daily life learn better. For
example, according to Kolb, there are four types of learning
styles - doer, feeler, watcher and thinker. Each learning style
has its own strength. Individuals who understand and learn
through their unique learning style will enjoy the learning
process and achieve better in examinations and daily life.
Always bear in mind that learning is a lifelong process that
everyone must enjoy!

Learning means being open to new ideas and knowledge;
constantly upgrading yourself in all aspects of life and using
all the resources available to you. Learning to me is a joy.

Learning is a lifelong process which should not be limited to
age, gender and education background. It is a trial and error
process to find the truth of a philosophy. Along the learning
journey, one should be humble, enthusiastic, passionate
and always keep the momentum alive. Avoid looking at the
world through a keyhole. The world is huge and the law of
the universe is beyond our imagination. Learning will bring
you closer to the world and universe.

Learning is about acquiring new knowledge, behaviours,
skills, values, preferences and understanding. At OUM,
learning occurs through three flexible modes - face-to-face
tutoring, online discussions and self-managed learning.
Learning at OUM will support each individual to become
more independent in their thinking and decision making so
that they are able to continue to learn the rest of their lives.
Learning at OUM is self-motivated and goal-oriented.
Being self-motivated means being driven, focused, ready
for objective discussion and open to positive learning. Goal
orientation is often seen as an aspect of an individual’s
motivation for learning. An individual’s goal orientation in
learning will motivate him to work and study at the same
time. This will increase his chance of success. Learning at
OUM is a way to achieve success via quality learning.
