I also find discussion often overwhelming. I find myself trying to process the comments on various topics, compare them to my own, and reconstruct all while trying to keep up with the discussion itself. For me, this is a very extensive and frustrating process, but has been one that I have had to deal with throughout my learning career and stages of development. It reminds me of the concept of metacognition- having knowledge of ones own ability to learn and the factors that influence or affect their learning. This class is reinforcing my own ideals of what kind of learner I am and yet I continue to struggle to adjust and produce. Am I learning? Can metacognition be a crutch(in both senses of the word)?
