October 28, 2011
It has been four days into the study week and I have come a long way. When I started with this course, I found it really different and thought it to be fun and hard. Well it has surely lived upto its expectations as it has turned out to be both hard and fun. Hard as it had required quite a bit of time for research and fun because I did not find it a burden on me to be studying or doing research or attending the ever interesting meetings with Paul( our Module Tutor). Yes, I prefer to call them meetings and not lectures.
Well, from my school and throughout my undergraduation I was always hesistant in asking quetions or even answering questions. I always used to avoid doing that. I used to hate lectures where there was a Q&A round due to take place. Well it has all changed here at MBE. Paul has encouraged us all to ask questionas or give comments to any point of discussion. It ha really created a learning environment where we now look forward to discuss within ourselves and ask questions amongst ourselves. It is not a liability now but something that has become a part of our learnong where we seek for discussion to take place. I must admit that these discussions really make me understand the topic really well. Everyone sharing their real life experiences really gives you the insight how this point can be used in reality and how useful it will be when I start to work. Paul said today that he was really happy that a learning environment was created in MBE and was impressed by us but I would like to thank him for making it possible to happen. Always encouraging us to make comments and raise questions and maintaining the safe environment which he talked about since starting.
It has really made me come a long way. Now I am no longer hesistant in asking questions or put my viewpoint to test. It has really given me a sense of security and the belief that questions and comments from your classmates or colleagues just help you further understanding the topic and correct you if you were thinking on the wrong lines.
