Experiences outside of university, whether during extra-curricular activities or continuing educational practice, are part of your learning. Continuing education programs are a great resource for further learning and expertise. Ryerson’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education offers adult learning through university-level and degree-credit courses. As you transition from university to work, you will notice links between your educational, social, and professional learning. Be mindful of how these relate to one another over time.
When you are engaging in an activity, observe and reflect on that experience. Your observations and reflections will help you connect what you have learned to other aspects of your life, including your career.
For example, if you are training for a marathon, consider why you enjoy running, what motivates you to train, what kind of outcome you are looking for in developing this ability.
What you learn about yourself during this process may ignite a passion in you - if you love to run, maybe you also love the idea of personal training, or a career that involves physical ability. Or maybe you will continue this as an interest aside from your career, and realize it is an important component of the lifestyle you wish to lead.
