Today will be the first day of the new semester (Nov-March 2012), and this semester I was given two subject to handle which IMD 205 – Multimedia for Presentation and IMD 304 – Electronic Publishing. Both subject don't have final examination which are project based course so usually students won't have any problem to pass these paper. But last semester, there were few students fail the paper because of their attitude like love to miss the class, didn't submit their assignments and didn't comes for the test purposely.
I just finish my class for today, which only for two hour but for today I've to complete earlier because of the technical problem in the lab and also I know the students still in the holiday mood.
Today were the last day of Basic Teaching and Learning Course or "Kursus Asas Pengajaran" (KAP). The last task for the last day or course is micro teaching where the lecture/teacher have to do simulation like just like in class about 7 minute any topic in the subject. I choose Electronic Publishing as that subject might be easy and interesting for the students (in here means the lectures) to learn. Theory is quite difficult when combining with arts for student have zero knowledge about the subject matter. If the student see and critics during the process of learning that can be much better
Individual assignments for subject IMD304 – Electronic Publishing, I give two topic for them to choose whether Hari Raya or Merdeka wishing card. Some of the cards produced by the students were very nice and professional but some still not meet the requirement. I manage to snap a picture some of the cards.
