PBL Vision & Career: MUL Episode 6

Managing University Life Episode 6 Blog Post — Comments will be closed June 7
  • Watch Episode 6 of MUL below and answer the question(s). You can watch the video anywhere– we aren’t meeting in the office this week.
  • On Thursday, June 15 you will be submitting a written assignment on one of the issues discussed in Episodes 1-6. Write a paper of about 750 words discussing how this problem is a factor at Hanyang ERICA, and how it might be solved. Be specific and do some research– “The university should fix poor eating habits by encouraging students to eat better” isn’t a realistic or detailed solution.
  • There was an error in the YouTube link for Episode 5. Here it is.

Choose one of the following questions and write a post of about 100-200 words answering it. There are no right or wrong answers; give your opinion, or respond to someone else’s post.

 

  1. “Education is not something you buy or receive—it must be earned, just like fitness.” What does this mean, and how is becoming educated like becoming physically fit?
  2. Write an imaginary e-mail to a professor to ask for something, using polite language; or, write an imaginary cover letter for an internship or program.
  3. If asked in an interview, “what is your greatest weakness?”, if you answer “I like to work too hard!” the interview will just think you are lying. What is a better answer that you could personally use yourself?

  1. You need to work on a group assignment, and one of your members isn’t helping at all. What are some ways you might solve this problem with positive-sum thinking?
  2. You’re having a good time at the party/M.T. but you’ve had enough alcohol for the night. How can you avoid drinking more alcohol if you don’t want to? List some strategies you might try, or recommend.
  3. One of your friends obviously has a caffeine addiction, and can’t get through the day without huge amounts of soda and coffee. Saying “drink less” isn’t going to help. What other advice can you give to help?

Choose one of the following questions and write a post of about 100-200 words answering it. There are no right or wrong answers; give your opinion, or respond to someone else’s post.

  1. Give an example from your own experience of how you learned in an “active” way in class or in a personal activity.
  2. What is the “university” way to approach a professor if an exam or course grade is poor, according to the video? How might you do this in real life?
  3. How might someone used to the Greek mode of learning act differently in a university class? Give an example.
  4. All of this talk about extra work and responsibility doesn’t sound like it’s better than high school. But the video does discuss some advantages to university life. Discuss a few.

PBL & Visioning – MUL Episode 1 Blog Post

Write a post of about 100-200 words responding to the prompt below.

There will be times in university where you will have an emergency task to do and you will not have enough time to do everything. Imagine that Dr. Sureggi has assigned you an essay due in two days. You need to find and read information for the paper and write it. You also need to study for Dr. Kimbop’s exam the same day.

Make a two day schedule for writing the paper and preparing for the exam. Indicate all of the things you will need to do, within reason—you are a human and you need time to sleep, eat, take a bath, take the bus, and so on. Think about and list what time you will devote to each of these personal and academic tasks.

Depending on your skills, some people can do one or more tasks at a time. You might be able to have lunch and read at the same time, or study with headphones while you walk or ride home. Think about these abilities you might have, to use your time more efficiently. Again, you don’t have enough time to do it all; how can you prioritize or use your time better?
