On becoming a guest lecturer
Earlier this week I had a chance to become a guest lecturer in a private university in Jakarta. It was not my first time though, but my second time. The first time was last year, where I was given the opportunity to give a lecture about my previous work for a undergraduate Marketing class. It was pretty basic – at that time I was still working for a company which brand is in the top 5 of world’s most valuable brands.. so all I did was shared some successful marketing campaigns which I was involved in, and had a Q&A session.
But this time it was a little bit different. The class was a Consumer Behavior class, still undergraduate, and I was asked to give lecture about the applications of Consumer Behavior in the industry. Shortly, it was more challenging! :))))) but of course I was up for the challenge… 😉
To be honest I had forgotten the theories about Consumer Behavior, although it was one of my favorite subjects at uni. I did some readings to refresh my memory, and as I read along, my memory quickly came back, so I managed to include some good ol’ theories in addition to some study cases for my lecture.
So, thankfully the class went smoothly. Nobody fell asleep to my lecture, hahaha… although some occasionally chatted with each other. But hey I did that too when I was in my undergrads years! :p. I was also so happy when I received some questions at the end of my session. And there was this exchange student from Korea who actually came to see me after class to ask more questions about his future career. I felt sooo content for being able to share 🙂
Same university, same room, different class and different students. It was my second time being a guest lecturer in the past year and I came to realise that I actually enjoyed it very much! #todayimgratefulfor this opportunity and I hope there will be more like this in the future! P.S: no students fell asleep during the 1,5hours class.. Yay me! 😉
Now I’m seriously considering to become a full-time lecturer later in life. Well maybe not full-time. Ah, I don’t know. But for sure the idea of giving more lectures in the future is not bad at all! 🙂
On seeing Batman vs Superman
I know.. I know.. it’s been two weeks since the movie was first released in Indonesia but I just had the chance to see it yesterday. I still decided to see it even though I’ve read the not-so-supportive reviews. I mean, I couldn’t miss seeing Ben Affleck vs Henry Cavill on big screen, could I? :p
It was a really long movie to be honest. I didn’t quite get the first half of the movie and I can understand why some fans are disappointed about it.. but to me – who does not really read the comic, I think the movie was alright. I’ve seen a lot of worse and more boring ones, really. And I don’t know about you, but I also think the fighting scene was pretty awesome for a superhero movie.
Have you seen the movie? what do you think about it?
