Welcome to the UTS Learning Journeys website!
This exciting resource has been created to help students and staff at all levels to reflect on our readiness for new challenges.
Why the big focus on preparing for change? Because that’s basically the only thing we can be sure the future holds — we will run increasingly into situations that require us to step out of our comfort zones.
As a student these might be in your university studies, jobs, internships or co-curricular activities, while Staff will be reflecting on the challenges of their professional roles.
You have a lifetime of learning-on-the-job ahead of you, most likely mixed with formal training or education, as you pivot and prep yourself for new roles and projects.
We need new ways of thinking, and new ways of working with others. All the evidence is that this requires new levels of self-awareness and personal reflection, and this is what the Learning Journeys tool is designed to help with.
It asks you to honestly assess how you handle challenging learning, and gives you instant feedback to reflect on, called your Learning Power profile. This isn’t a grade, and you don’t have to show this to anyone else if you don’t want to. It’s a mirror to reflect on, to see if it helps you see yourself in a new way.
The Learning Power profile introduces a language for learning and over a decade’s educational research shows that many people at all ages and stages of life have found this helpful.
So, this website explains what a Learning Journey offers you, and shares stories of how students and staff are already using it here at UTS.
Our experience shows that it’s important that you take a bit of time to understand how to get the most out of it before diving in.
Once you’re ready, then you can click through to the tool, sign in, and embark on your Learning Journey!
