First Reflection

27 Sep

YEEEAAAYYY 😀 Finally, I meet first week of semester five. When the holiday come, I always miss my time in this campus. Anyway, I take 7 subjects in this semester. One course is an advance subject from the second semester and another six subjects are new for me. I also meet 6 new lecturers in this semester. New subject, new lecture, new hope and also new expectation. I hope this semester more challenging than before. One of 6 new subjects is Motivation and Management of Student for Effective Learning (MMSEL). What will we learn in this subject? Source:

I guess this semester will be learn more deeply about how to motivate student in the class, and how to maintain the motivation in the classroom. It will be interested for me as a teacher candidate. In the first session my friend and I have discussed about what is the characteristics of favorite teacher? why we don’t like the teacher? why we want to be a teacher? who is our inspiration of being a teacher? Okay, this is one of interesting discussion. It’s looks like making a reflection of our learning experience and also making planning for our teaching journey someday. Long time ago, I never think about teaching as my profession. Some reasons that makes me choose being a teacher as my profession in the future are I want a give something to my country, I want a looks like a teenager as long I can, I like to update and also upgrade my memory by enjoying my learning so I know I’m still alive. My friends also told their reason why they want a be a teacher, it’s interesting for me because I found the simple reason until the complicated one. One my friend told to use he want a be a teacher because he likes getting attention from the students, another friend told to us that she want a be a teacher because she want to change an education system in Indonesia. But she is still dilemma, because she thinks that it’s difficult to form a students thinking than form a machine. Yes, I’m absolutely agree with this things, but we shouldn’t give up about this matter.

In this meeting, we also discuss about what is the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation of going to campus on that day? My reason is very simple, this is the first meeting of this subject, I called this as extrinsic motivation. I need to know the lecture, the rule of this class, and also more deeply about this subject I called this one as intrinsic motivation. Actually, what my friend and I have done in the first time was great, I hope it’s always great for the next session.
