When it comes to education, it’s safe to say we could do with some major improvements. However, our system largely does what’s promised, so, in the meantime, while we wait for improvements to be made, we do have a fairly useful education system to prepare us and our friends and family for life in the world around us, and that’s what’s the most important thing. While it’s not perfect, our education system does an alright job of catering to various student needs, for example. Here are just a few ways your student experience can be customized to fit your unique needs.
First and foremost, there’s the traditional college experience. This means, primarily, attending classes on campus and living on campus in a dorm room. This is experience is great for one on one face time with professors which can be essential for the learning process of many students. Likewise, this style of schooling offers a more social experience overall and allows students to meet other students and make friends and participate in extracurricular activities.
However, this social style of learning doesn’t suit everyone, and so they may seek a hybrid education. While living on or near campus and attending some lectures, many students opt for taking many of their classes online. This does away with much of the social element of a traditional college experience, but not all, in favor of a more remote education. While this doesn’t allow for face tiem with professors, it makes up for that fact in allowing introverts an educational framework in which they can thrive, as introverts perform better in isolation.
Along these same lines is the online school. Some schools take place entirely online, such as Udemy. This doesn’t feature much, if any, of the social element of the traditional college education, and so it’s great for introverts. However, it can also be good for those with disabilities that hinder their ability to travel, or those will medical conditions that may be contagious or require hospitalization.
