|Are you satisfied with the education that you received?
No but that was largely my own doing
Not at the time, but on hindsight is was a wonderful foundation into life long adaptability and learning. Something the digital industry is truly about today.
Yes, overall. From what I have seen, going to Stanford/Harvard does NOT mean you are smarter, or will succeed in the world, more than others...when things are equal.
Education is not a thing that stops. I have diploma, degrees, professional qualifications but education comes from staying curious and seeking answers and then finding more questions, it is not something that should ever be satisfied, merely a quest that accompanies me through life.
Not at all. I spent 5 1/2 years at the Art Institutes and what I learned did not pertain to art or design. I already had the full knowledge of what I needed to do design work prior to the school, minus the piece of paper saying I had received an "education." What I learned from the Art Institutes was how corporations are full of greed, how not to teach people, and how to not trust people overseas handling your school loan account with your bank information.
As far as my current college experience at Rasmussen, I have zero complaints.
For the most part yes. I have traveled extensively and I have also gained experience from the ground up in positions. The experience I gained has been invaluable not only in the work place but in life. For myself the combination of seeing how others live and having great on-the-job mentors is more important than formal schooling.
Yes, though would like to study further
I'm actually taking a lot of classes... interior design, light design and floral design. My background is scientific (school of medicine, almost finished) but also managerial (I have several certifications from my "previous" career) and artistic (6 yrs of Conservatoire, opera singer who can also play piano).
Yes although I wish I hadn't had a family as early as I did and taken education further -hindsight is an excellent teacher..
Yes and no. My intellectual curiosity took me off the curricular paths that were necessary to obtain a degree, so I would say no - the curriculum did not suit me. Yet the education I got on my own time with my own money has worked quite well for me. A pity that society decides to measure people by diplomas.
I went to some of the finest middle and high schools and had some of the best teachers that ever existed. I'm being completely objective about this. They were so good that I had no choice but to love school -- and hate college. I skipped eleventh grade, went to college at sixteen, dropped out at seventeen, and have been self educated ever since.
I love books. Books can teach you anything you want to learn. TV can teach also, even faster than books, but you have to watch the schedules. And now we have the Internet.. not (infamously) like trucks, you know, "more like a series of tubes," as Senator Ted Stevens remarked.
On demand education, if you're careful, and you double check everything, because anything you see on the Internet was put there by someone who might or might not have an agenda beyond being informative, and some of those people have no compunctions against outright lying. So learn, as I still do and hope to always do, but also learn to "hear" the lies.
Not really. I think even though I have a fair bit of experience, I was not given the educational opportunities that I needed at the beginning, due mainly to financial and family pressures. So my route was a little longer into the field.
Yes, quite. But I would still say that I am a student of photography. There is always much more to learn, more experience to be gained, more photographers to study, and new techniques to master.
Oh yeah, I loved school. I still read every day and try to learn new stuff. I definitely have a thirst for knowledge.
