Reflection Week 1

04 Oct

Today was mysterious class because when the class was started, I was forced by many questions. In my opinion, that questions were very substantive question. Due to that question, the destination and the expectation of my friend and I could be known.

The class was full of questions from my lecturer, Bu Lidya. We spent most of our time for that class to answer the question given. All students had the turn to come in front of the class to explain what their answer was.

First question was about what was our motivation to come to the class. One of my friends said that she came to the class because she wanted to get knowledge. Another one said that because the lecturer who was kind. The others said because of obligation, GPA, capstone graduated project, experience, parents, etc. But I, myself, came to the class because if I did not come or my absence is more than 25 %, I will fail to this subject and I can’t be graduated, so due to that reason I came to the class. J

The next question that will be answered by I and my friends were about our commitment to be a teacher. Most of my friend said that they will be a teacher and will be committed to that profession. But I said No, absolutely No. my reason is, if we reflect to our country, we have so many students-teachers but they did not have place to express their talent and most of them were idleness. Hence I chose to be a person who will make that place or who will give them an employment.

Well, before we went to the next question, I wanna ask a question to our beloved teacher, Bu Lidya, what the different between motivation and reinforcement? I still have miss conception about those words.

    I like your post, Riyan.
    But, Most of us do not only have a commitment to be teacher, but also to be a good teacher, to create differences. we all hope that we can make a change education to be better. 🙂
    O.. I will answer your question, this is my simple answer..
    Motivation: you can get it from inside or outside of yourself (intrinsic and extrinsic).
    Reinforcement: you only get it from outside of yourself

    Nice posting Riyan, in my opinion motivation is like hand that push a window when human want a open the door by different way, and reinforcement like our thinking, it give us reason why we still live right now. 🙂
    I would like to say maybe each of us have different motivation to enter the class, but we already have same goals. We want to graduate in the right time. If you want a be school principal or another higher position, would you like to change your habit? I think come late everyday isn’t good habit. If you didn’t adapt your self right now, when you will do it? Anyway, good luck with your commitment. 🙂
