Studying abroad at University of Maryland has introduced the different academic practices and learning methodologies that are practiced by the local students. There were numerous group projects, discussions in between classes to encourage interactions between students and learn from one another. Learning from the professors in the US and local students has expanded my knowledge in various aspects, it has taught me the different ways to approach a given question, and exposed us to a different teaching style.

In UMD the concept of discussion sessions that are available in some classes allows the students the opportunity to interact with one another and share the knowledge with one another. Hence, during discussion sessions we discussed the content taught in class and if we had queries, the other students would use simple concepts to teach us the content from their understanding.
