How has the feedback you’ve had in workshops changed your approach to the main assignments you’re producing?
It has mainly changed my approach to the topics I chose to write about. From wanting to write about something student-related and “safe”, Karl convinced me to write about something more newsworthy which would actually challenge me to step out of my comfort zone.
How well do you feel you’ve managed your time over the last nine weeks?
I feel like I’ve managed my time well. I have attended almost all of the workshops, and when I missed some I made sure to follow the instructions online and complete the tasks before the next week. That way I made sure that I was always up to speed and wouldn’t fall behind in the workshops.
If you could go back to week one and give yourself some advice to help you out with the module, what would you tell yourself?
I would tell myself to relax and not be so stressed out. Since English isn’t my first language, I was feeling very nervous about writing and producing articles in English – and especially about doing interviews and talk to people. But after going to the workshops and doing the assignments, I feel a lot more confident. So I would tell myself to pay attention to the lectures, and to trust myself.
