When I first knew that Effective Communication was one of the modules in the trimester, I felt dreadful as I am aware that it would definitely involve a lot of writing and presenting. Personally, I am the kind of person that gets nervous easily especially when it comes to presentation or having to talk big crowds.
However, after going through these 12 weeks of Effective Communication module, there were a lot of takeaway, from being able to write a proper technical report to presenting to the whole cohort of SIE. My language improved and when it comes to writing, it just comes naturally that I will check through thoroughly as compared to before. This had greatly helped me because in university, there will be more chances of us writing reports. With this skill, the errors in language can be minimized.
I also did not expect to be given the opportunity to stand in front of the cohort to present about our group’s project proposal. It was an amazing experience as this is something that does not happen that frequently. Even though my voice was not very loud during the presentation, I am glad that I was able to catch the audiences’ attention. This module had made me into a more out-going person as it requires students to communicate with each other and to step out of your comfort zone.
I had a very fun and fruitful journey but all good things must come to an end. I hope I will be able to meet a teacher like Brad that is dedicated to his students and put in his greatest effort in the things that he had done for us.
