Inquiry Based Learning Learning at your own pace, Learning by yourself.
That there is a very different concept. Wow! this means I will teach myself these course and with the help of my peers learn more effectively.
Solving the global challenge. Looking at multiple perspectives within a group
I think we should reduce food waste to solve food shortage
I think fixing government policies and the economic state of a government is key
Multiple Perspectives 1) Reduce food waste 2) Fix the Economy
At first the course seemed like another lecture based course where the professor would give us information and we had to take it all in. However due to its open ended topic I still expected something different and unique.
I have learnt so much from my peers and found unique ways of solving this challenge.. Now its time to present it
Now with your groups present this to the whole class and explain why, with evidence why this is the most important aspect of the global challenge.
Early in the course, I discovered this wasn't like any other conventional university course. It was research based and required us as individuals to go find out information from reliable sources. This taught me a lot about myself and how I can be an independent learner and teacher.
Group Presentation Our perspective on the global challenge, these are our issues, along with evidence, we also have a few solutions as to how we could overcome these issues and help solve the global challenge.
My array of skills
I learnt new skills. I learnt how to work with others. But most importantly I learnt a very important skill that changed my way of looking at things. It was about taking different perspectives into account and listening to others and forming a solid group opinion.
This course has so far taught me various skills that I can implement in all my other courses and also in my own personal life. Hurray!!. I hope to finish this course with bang.

As I attended more and more lectures I learnt more and more. I was now tasked to implement all the research we had done as a group and develop solid narrowed down perspectives on the issues we were looking at. Hence my communication improved greatly too.
Presenting the piece! Public speaking was something I always admired, but this was different. This was public speaking with a hint of persuasiveness blended with factual information in it. Our presentations had to be clear and concise. My presentation skills have vastly improved ever since
I have learnt an array of skills from this course, and there is more to learn as we come to the closing stages of this course. However the stuff I have learnt so far has allowed me to grasp a deeper of understanding of different learning techniques.I am grateful!
