Today ,the new module start,combing the lectures and teamwork.The contents of lectures are intensive while the teamwork in the afternoon are interesting and practical. The case study can greatly activate what we learned and encourage brainstorming. I am really proud of the result of our group C for question three that is to reduce the tariff from 120% to 80% for US or European countries in car industry while cut 8% tariff on importing cashmere garments. It is the win-win situdation which is beneficial for both sides. Finally and luckily, Team D quite agree with our suggestion. That's the objective of group work. By the way, I was really impressed by the two smart African guy who devoted themselves and contributed a lot to the final answers.
The only thing I need to consider again and again is the time management since we have rather tight timetable this and next week ,almost from 9:00 to 6:30 everyday, with various of other tasks going on simultanuously. How we manage the time,making the balance between life and study, how to increase the efficiency and make full use of all the facilities and what's the specific plan for our single project and post module work are all worth thinking.
It is my first time to use forums as a tool in the study, while I surprisely found it's a easy and convenient way to share our opinions and improve our knowledge by interaction.I spend hours today to look through what we have done so far for six mini projects, I really appreciate the passion and effort from every lovely member in my team.
Tomorrow, a next new module, a new start,expecting...
