The material in this course is really interesting (to me) and has the potential to significantly improve the quality of all of our lives! However, as an instructor, I often wonder if students are focusing only doing what they need to do to get a good grade, rather than concentrating on learning as much as they can in this course (or any course). As stated in one of the articles for this discussion, students can fall into the trap of giving only enough effort to get the grade they want instead of trying to maximize learning. For discussion 2, I want us to really think critically about this idea of grades versus learning and how we can optimize our UH education by learning to our fullest potential. There are no right or wrong answers in this discussion. This is purely an exercise to help YOU explore ways to increase personal success.


  1. Read the short articles at the following links:
  1. Review the “Helpful Learning Resources” folder on the course homepage:

Discuss the following questions:

  1. Discuss at least one point from one of the articles that you found interesting.
  2. Have you ever fallen into the trap of only doing the bare minimum to get the grade you wanted? Did you learn to your fullest potential? Do you think this type of strategy is best for your future career goals?
  3. What motivates you to really want to learn versus only do enough to get a grade?
  4. Do you think if you make the decision put forth the effort to learn, good grades will likely follow naturally? What stops you from doing this in every class?
  5. What tools (either from the learning resources folder, or somewhere else) do you think would be helpful to help boost your learning potential and retain the material in this course?

*Reminder** to get full credit for this discussion you must post an original response to the discussion questions and also reply to at least 2 of your classmates.

Learning vs automative behavior

The art of learning is mostly forgotten in this generation. We are more focused on getting the highest grade rather than learning and retaining the information. This is especially the case for people seeking post-graduate school, notably medical or dental school. As a pre-dental student, I find myself caring more about my grade than the information I am retaining. For my elective classes, I usually choose the classes that are known to be an easy A rather than those I enjoy. For this reason, I found this topic particularly interesting to read about. I enjoyed how one article was from a student’s point of view and the other from a counselor because the student gave her struggle with this issue while the counselor talked about the students that encounter this issue, giving two perspectives. I liked how the student talked about how she figured out that she is losing the value of a class by just doing it for the grade because I do the exact same thing. Although I usually go above and beyond in my classes, I found that I only did that to make my grade as high as possible rather than learning the material. This caused me to lack in my learning which I believe will make my future harder since as my classes get more difficult, I will need to understand the material to do well in the class. Also, I realized that if I didn’t make the effort to learn what I am taught in the class, I would be wasting my tuition money. From now on, I will put an emphasis on staying engaged in my classes and trying to absorb the information presented to me rather than going through the class on auto-pilot. Although learning alone won’t aid me in getting the grades I want, it will always be more enriching to learn the information in a class and get a good grade than only getting a good grade. Most of my classes require diligence and hard work to get a good grade and learning alone won’t help but if I combine the two I believe I will succeed. The resources that can aid me in understanding the material are quizlet, professor office hours, and youtube videos explaining any particular subject. Overall, I am going to put in the effort to learn the material I am given to be able to say I learned something when I went to college.

2nd Discussion

The difference between being smart, and being lazy

The articles that I’ve read have put an interesting point. The idea, that there are people out there who have the mindset that the grade point average comes first, and learning second. Yet, in the second article, the more that author learned about the specific topic, the higher grade he received. Which, when you think about it, makes sense. The more you comprehend about a subject, the more better you are on any graded work based off the content of it.

I have fallen into the mindset of only doing a bare minimum to get a good(ish) grade, somewhat, unable to fully learn the content. If I payed more attention to the content rather the grade, i probably could do better. For my future career goals, this would probably be insufficient, as I need to pull off of prior knowledge and experience to better serve my audience/clientele

The thing that motivates me to really learn, really, is just dependent on the subject. certain subjects just feel more interesting to me than others, and some courses that i’m required to take don’t have the same “pull” to it.

If I really did focus, and try to actually learn, good grades should follow, in my opinion. But, unfortunately, some subjects are just more difficult for me to comprehend, than others. I feel, that even if i put all my effort into learning everything in that class, I still wouldn’t be able to get a better grade in that class.

Peer tutoring would be really helpful in learning, because it both combines the learning of a professor/teacher, and the ease of socialization from, say, a friend. It would make things way easier to retain more information by association.
