Overall i’ll give myself a Credit. I will not give myself any higher because i think compare to the other group mates my work load are not as heavy as them. And i will also not give myself something lower than that because i know i did put effort on helping to deliver a better seminar.
Contribution & Collaboration
What did i do throughout the process of organising, delivering, and publishing:
Before the seminar, i did some research that are needed to look for potential guest, although i didn’t get replies from them, but i did help up my group member to call up some guest to invite them to our seminar. Other than that, on the day itself, i also complete task that are given that is organizing the furniture in the room. I also gave some help to other group members to complete their task, for example one of our member who are suppose to bring food did not turn up at the end, and we had limited food, me and Angie went out to get something more. At the end we get Sushi, with also a reasonable price. Other than that, i also maintained the order of the crowds. Besides, i also help on cleaning up the theater at the end of the seminar. I guess although i didn’t give much help organizing the seminar, but i think i gave quite alot help on the day of the seminar.
To deliver the seminar to the class, the first thing to do is to search for potential guest, after we’ve got the list of them, we then have to contact them, this is also everyone’s task. I reckon this task is able to practice our communication skills, because we have to call them up and deliver a message and ask permissions. While delivering the seminar, i realized team work is very important, if we did not collaborate properly, when the “catering” problem occur, i think we will not be able to solve the problem very quickly. Again, communication skills is very important, it enable me to negotiate a good price for our food! Other than that i think socializing skills is quite important as well, because good socializing skills will lead to good networking.
I have to be honest, i am not an active group member, i did miss quite a few of the group meetings, but i will never forget to go on our facebook group to keep myself update, and i also did meet up with my other group mates to keep myself updated. Other than that, i think i am very active during the seminar, i find myself quite helpful, i did put effort on helping up, and improving the seminar.
Connection & Intersections
What do you see as the value of the seminar series?
The seminar series are able to give us more understand on various area of the media industry. I found some of the seminar quite helpful, it gave me depth understanding of some industry that I am interested in.
What have you discovered about your learning, your group interactions and your networking abilities in relation to this series?
What i’ve discovered was, good communication skills is really important for us, as a media student we have to communicate with people more than other people, especially when we are approaching all kinds of professionals. Other than that, with good networking skills will make things even more easier for us while looking for guest speakers.
Future career development
Other than communication skills that i find it useful for now and for future use, the understanding of this field are very helpful too, because it enable me to understand more about what i am doing in the future. The process also improve my network in Australia, at least now i know who should i approach if i want to look for job in the future.
