October 08, 2008
It is really a shame that I have missed the first introduction week. After reading my group mates' blogs, I saw those lovely photos, especially the team photo with handmade Giraffe. I think I must have missed such wonderful time.
Lucky enough, I settled down quite well, and was put into team 3 in the first day when I arrived. People are looking nice and friendly in our team and Kang gave me the deepest impression as he has very strong confidence and outstanding leadership.
The way of teaching I have never met before, I even haven't had lectures but the projects come. It is challenging my self study ability which is the worst part of mine. ^^ We have 2 meetings up to now for our group projects. Some important issues have been decided and here I want to thanks Lila who is a very serious and responsible secretary of our group, she recorded every single bit of meeting and posted all to us, including time, who is attending, what have been discussed and the time for next meetings.
Now I am mainly working on the last two projects, I have borrowed lots of books from library, but don't think all would be helpful.
Ok, Let me just started my first time writing blogs.
I have used quite a lot of blogs before, like MSN Space, Face book, Xiaonei(Chinese face book) but have never written in English before¡
Use of blog in the study is a new method (at least for me). I was getting surprised about this at first as Paul mentioned it will count percentage in our degrees. In my opinion, blog like face book was only a part of entertainment in the normal life. We use it to write what we think, what we like or to express depressed mood during certain time, also we use it to post our recent photos in order to know more about our friends and also let them know more about myself.
However, when I was thinking about what I mention above, I suddenly understand that if we use Blog in our study, let it be our part of life, then in other words, we also let studying to be our part of life. I think this would be a fantastic way to restrict the person like me, who hates sitting down and studying but likes having fun around. ^^ through Blogs, we can not only exchange the learning experiences in order to understand the knowledge in different point of view, but also to know our course mates more by reading their personal thinking.
But Please Please remember (this is what I am talking to myself), blog is good way of helping studying only if keep writing it!
