Learning beyond the course notes

From plain presentation slides to presentation slides with pictures and illustrations.

Last week we had series of presentations from all 3 sub groups in group B. Its was a wonderful time. Even though frankly I was so much in a panick state most of the times I was to present because presenting is definately not one of my strong points. But gladly I made it! we all made it!!

Like Paul said "...you learn to speak by speaking..." I wish to grow and develop this skill as time goes on.

All the feedbacks we got from Paul and Graeme were very helpful as it helped me to see things in a different light. For example after I did my presentation on Tuesday on the topic ISO 9000 vs EFQM, I thought my eye contact with the audience was okay but Paul suggested it would be better if consistent eye contact are made the listeners and less reading from the slides.

And just in the few days I observed that even though our group's first presentation slides were so plain and not colorful like others, we were unconciously developing our visual skills that our last presentation is AWESOME! I thought and so did everyone else.

There was an obvious difference between our first presentation slides and our last. Apart from that, I particularly learnt and saw things in the eyes of 12 other Group B members (excluding my group members) while they were presenting on each of the topics. This is important because sometimes when you have only one person doing the teaching, talking, explaining etc. it might get boring and easy to loss track. But it difinately sticks better when different people say the same things in maybe slightly different ways with Tutor there to draw attention to areas wrongly represented.

Learning was fun for me....even though we had to work extra for longer hours just make sure we understood first hand what we were ask to present on.
