Hiya! You're alright?
Well, I'm currently in the 2nd week of Sem 4 and the workloads just keep coming in. So basically, I did get to know the modules of this semester and they are freakingly exciting! Guess what? There's still another module to be introduced tomorrow. Sweet! (I know I sound like a kid in candy store and I do know that some people just couldn't stand when other people are happy because they are suffering from some kind of congenital depression. Poor sad people ;P)
But I'm not going to comment about my modules (well, at least not for now). Instead, I'm going to let you know about my 2nd module for the Nottingham Advantage Award (I'm so active this semester, I wonder why). The module is:
NUSA: Insight into Education
If you realize something, both of my modules are closely related to teaching. I don't know, I probably miss school..probably miss my teachers. And I actually went to J Club 7's blog just to read some of the silly stuff that we actually wrote and published on blogspot.
So anyway, NUSA stands for Nottingham University Samworth Academy and it was opened in 2009. It's a school basically and also one of the first in the UK to have "direct sponsorship and academic links with a University" (Source: The University of Nottingham). In this case, they have links with my university =)
At first, I thought it would be similar to Student Associate Scheme. After attending the 1st session today, I guess it would be so much different. If a Student Associate would work with cute, adorable children in a classroom; a volunteer for NUSA will work with the staffs of the Academy - the teachers :O
And you know how it is going to be assessed? Yes, just because it's volunteering work, doesn't mean I'm not going to be assessed :P
At the end of March, there will be a presentation. COOL! You know, I have always enjoyed doing presentations. You can ask anyone of the J Club 7 (M07J) as you can actually see me glowing whenever it's time for presentation. Being a presenter is fun cause you're trying to engage yourself with the audience and make them interested with what you're talking about.
Oooooh, but that's not all. Do you know what it means to be a volunteer in this module? This would be the best part - I would be conducting a research!!! Best gilerrrrr!
That's why I tweeted: "x menyesal ambik module ni, alhamdulillah :D"
And as a researcher, we were given 4 types of research to choose from. Well, I would have to discuss this with some people. (Lutfi, sat lagi aku datang rumah kau. Haq, get ready jugak. Syakir, I'll see you in your room) And I might want to ask my seniors as well cause I'm going to do a research anyway next semester for Medical Sciences.
Probably because the types of research were interesting so that's why I seemed to be in a very bubbly mood, hihi.
Well, that's all for now. I'd better focus on my FBN (Functional Behavioural Neuroscience); the module with the potential of becoming a favourite.
With that, I'll end this post with the attitude which is being promoted to all the students of NUSA - "i-Can"
And I know I can, insyaAllah...
