This is the last entry for the in module blog. I want to say all of my thought to you guys. At first, before I come here, I thought that the duration 5 days for each module will give me knowledge that related to the content of the modules. I did not think about in class task at all. Then after I passes the first week, I am a bit confusing about the method that we learn.
When Paul said "knowledge is cheap", I got it, but I still expect something. After we passed some presentation, seminars, in-class activity, I felt that being self-learner has more benefits. When I did the economics course for bachelor degree, the teachers always feed me tonsssssssss of knowledge, theory, history, and idea. Then, I have the same thinking about it, same method of thinking when I did the analysis, same idea with the lecturers.
THIS IS CALLED COMFORT ZONE. Of course, I got a lot of knowledge that related to the subject but what I lack is seemed to be more important. I have no skill that support my career goal. I got just "knowledge"
Now, I understand what Paul said clearly, and know why he said it like that. Knowledge is really cheap for me right now. Whenever I have question on the topic or even the subject itself, just go GOOGLE, I willl got million sources. What is more valuable than knowledge is called experience and skills. I got a lot of them.
Since I am just graduted BA, I do not have long term work experience. I found it quite hard for me to communicate with friends, who have tons of work experience. I got many idea from my classmate which is very useful. Moreover, my skills have developed a lot, espectially communication and teamwork skills.
Lastly, I am impressed by the module. Paul did not feed me with knowledge that I can find it myself, instead he gave me a clue and open the window for my new world of knowledge.
