This is one of the modules that I look forward to the next lesson, as the teaching materials are very dynamic. Various ways were also used to select the sequence to know whose turn to present next, and I think this is very unique. For instance, in every week, new ways were introduced to sequence the groups’ presentation slot, such as using student’s height from tallest to shortest, to using the residential address in alphabetical order, and many more interesting methods. This enabled me to learn outside of my comfort zone by working with classmates whom I have never worked with them before.
One of my favourite part of the class is actually presenting in front of my peers, but this only happened after several sessions of practicing. Through many sessions of presenting, I learned to become a more interactive presenter and rely less on the screen as a ‘pacifier’. I believe that this will definitely serve as an advantage for me when speaking up in the real workplace, by appearing more confident in front of my colleagues and managers.
The most rewarding assignment to me is the training video. This is because I learned how to edit videos which I had never done before, thus it was fairly challenging. However, I am glad that the outcome of our video is quite positive.
Overall, the past twelve weeks have been a fruitful learning experience. Personally, I feel that the module was designed very effectively, in a sense that the assignments are fairly paced, sufficient time is given to complete them, and most importantly they are relevant to the workplace context.
Thank you all for reading my final post, and thank you so much, Brad, for all your feedback, enthusiasm in teaching, and patience!
