Comfy and cozy

Here is a question for you....How do you handle situations that take you outside of your comfort zone while in the academic setting? Perhaps in this case it is a situation that challenges or takes you outside the limits of your knowledge-your cozy place of past learning. This example is a challenge and will happen as some point through your schooling. No one knows it all! Nor should we ever presume that we do. It is often when you know the least that your can overestimate the depths of your knowledge. There has to be a reaction that remains non-hostile to others. If your reaction creates an adverse amount of stress to you, and others, then true learning is blocked. Remaining 'teachable' will require that you stay open to being in unknown zones. When this happens in the classroom, or clinical learning environment, there can be a level of academic incivility that results. As a student you will be faced with new stress and pressures, and often competition or pressure to perform, this is the time to remain open and find ways to use positive strategies to manage your stress. Commit that if you are taken outside your comfort zone, that you remain open to learning!
