Welcome to The Learning Log!

I’m Paula Ford, the Coordinator at the Robert L. Smith Learning Resources Center at Penn State Altoona. I’m taking History 197A, British History, in the spring semester 2012, and I thought it would be interesting to journal my experiences in a blog. I’ll be using the study strategies I always recommend to students and sharing how well they work (or don’t) for me.

Can a very busy adult learner juggle a history class, a full-time job at Penn State Altoona, and a busy family life? That’s what I am going to discover and share.

I’m very motivated to do well in History 197A—more about this in a future blog entry. For now, I’ll share that I was an English major (ahem!) many years ago at Penn State University Park, so a British History course is intrinsically interesting to me.

More about me (if you like).

Questions, comments, and suggestions are very welcome. You can reach me via Penn State e-mail (pxf3) or by stopping by the Robert L. Smith Learning Resources Center. Many thanks!
