I can honestly say that the course of Seminar on Current Affairs has break a record throughout this trimester. It was above expectation and it was among the most interesting and marvelous course of the trimester. I am very honor and privilege for me personally to undertake this course. Having learned all those interesting inputs and understandings have made us gain a lot of new knowledge. Not only that, but we were also very lucky to have a collection of a diverse, united, filled with knowledge, patient and dedicated group of lectures. They were ever ready to explain, interact and share their wonderful knowledge with us. It was among my best journey ever with my lectures, because I met with the man of the wise words – Mr Britto, the man of the great words- Mr Evangelos, the man of the simplified words – Mr foaisy and the man with the empoweering words Mr Hamid, along with their two wonderful wings ,Miss vino and Miss Siti. I have been so enriched by getting to know their experiences throughout their life journeys.
Every topic involved in the course of Seminar on Current Affairs was interesting and very relevant. By having the opportunity to learn about current affairs and issues of the world, we as young students have become more open-minded about the happenings around the world, and what can be our influence as a young generation to change the world into a better one. This goal can only be achievable if all of us APPLY what we have learned among the course, and not just learn in order to get a good grade. There is a quote which I always remember: “It is better well done, than well said”. That makes me remind myself that the importance of learning is not only learning that particular input as a matter of memorizing, but learning it by living it (putting it in practice in our everyday life). So, honestly speaking, I think that all the topics were very significant. However, I can mention two of them which I found much more interesting, and it was the topic of conflicts and the Arab spring. Regarding the learning journey of Seminar of Current Affairs, I have personally had a great time, and I haven’t faced any difficulties or challenges. Indeed, that is because of the great assistance of our lecturers and especially our lecturer, the man of the wise words – Mr Britto. I deeply thank my lecturer for making me feel more motivated to write, and also to discuss during the tutorial class in particular. By doing so, I felt more self-confident, and furthermore, I also was more able to truly understand the respective topics of the class.
The most important thing which I should not forget to mention in my Reflective Diary on the whole course is the fact that we as students have to apply everything what we have learned but I believe next time there would not be every week a reflection dairy because it was quite tiring. Indeed, we can’t differentiate on the importance among the topics, because all of them were thoughtfully and carefully selected to be lectured to us. The Seminar on Current Affairs has ended as a course, but has just started as a mission. I am overall very satisfied of the knowledge I have gained during this course, and I hope that I will be able to put in practice every single input and insight that I have learned.
Indeed, I can truly say that the course of Seminar on Current Affairs had the same results as expected. It was an honor and privilege for me personally to undertake this subject. Having learned all those interesting inputs and understandings have made us gain a lot of new knowledge. Not only that, but we were also very lucky to have a collection of a diverse group of lecturers assisting and teaching us about so many interesting topics. Moreover, the fact that all the lecturers come from different countries of the world, we have been so enriched by getting to know with their experiences gained throughout their life journeys. Thank you all once more, merci.
