Presenting well :)

Q: Students lead in U:PASS for a wide variety of reasons – to mentor, to gain leadership skills, to improve communication skills, to get educational experience, to see what it’s like working for UTS. What’s something you feel you have gained in one (or more) of these areas over the last fortnight? Why? (You may also choose another area if you wish!) 🙂

A: Presentation skills – last week, I had a presentation in (subject) class, apart from giving a normal presentation (one-way), it also required us to engage the students to the discussion and made the presentation more lively. I and my friend (another U:PASS leader) did well and received very good feedback from the lecturer! I think it’s all thanks to the experience and skills I gained from U:PASS 🙂
