UHL2312 Sem 1-2009/2010


Please be informed that the new UHL2312 semester 1-2009/2010 students' are required to post five comments in the respective lecturers' blog (since the blogging activity is during lab hour, there is no reason why the students cannot have five post for the reading entries.). The comments are based on the articles that they have read. It is not restricted to only one genre, so the articles can be in any genre that attract the students' interest. Lecturers may also decide on which genre should their students read and write about.

Students are to post comments which relate to their experience or their point of view. They are not allowed to copy the articles and paste them in the blog. Any plagiarise work will be given zero mark and lecturers can penalise them by deducting their marks where necessary.

Remember to always end or begin your comments with your name and matric number. Thank you.

Wednesday, October 8, 2008


First of all, let me announce that your PRODUCT PRESENTATION begins NEXT WEEK. Some lecturers will begin on the first meeting and some on the second meeting. This really is up to the lecturers' discretion.

The VENUE is NO longer the ASTAKA, but the LOBBY of BLOCK W. On 16 OCT, there will be no presentation at Block W or ASTAKA, but perhaps at the Cafeteria of BLOCK Z (this also depends on your lecturers).

If you have ever been to an Education Fair or Career Fair, then you can imagine that your product exhibition is something like that. For example, if it's an Education Fair, varsities and colleges will set up booths and when you visit the booths, the college rep(s) will tell you aboutthe college and what programmes or courses they have. Similarly, if people come to YOUR booth, you'd have to explain the product you are presenting on. So, try to make your booth eye-catching and attractive that makes people want to visit your table. Print enough pamphlets or brochures for your visitors and you can even have a guestbook where visitors can write their names and leave comments. You can submit the comments when you submit your portfolio.

Which reminds me, for your PORTFOLIO, please submit your BLOG LOG. To make it easier for your lecturer to evaluate you, please copy your comments from your UHL blog onto a Word Document and attach your comments to the BLOG LOG. Thank you.

Hullo there UHL 2312 reading community!

We have been reading your comments and posts on your reading entries with great interest. It's interesting to see the stuff you guys are interested in reading. In fact, we found out the sad news of Prof Randy Paunsch's passing from your comments. So, great work and keep it up.

However, there are a handful or perhaps several handful of students who are still maybe unclear of what we are supposed to write on when posting a comment on our reading entries. It is important to know that part of the reading entry requirement is for you to RELATE what you've read to YOUR OWN UNIQUE EXPERIENCES, or VIEWPOINT - whether you agree or disagree, et cetera.

Posting a comment in the 'Reading Entries' post is more than just informing others what you've read by providing the link, OR copying the article into your comment entry.

Also, it is preferable that the articles or reading materials you are reading are in English.

Thank you.

FINAL PROJECT: Product Presentation

You have come near to the end of the course. For your final assessment, in your group of 4 or 5, unanimously choose ONE product to present on - preferably it's a product that is related to your field of study. Once you have all decided on your product, decide what each member should present on. Decide also which organization you'd like to have, e.g. spatial or chronological. Remember, it's only a 3-5 minute presentation per group member. So, please do not choose an object so complex that there is not enough time to present it. (Also, there'll be a Q&A session after the presentation.)

Once the product's decided, each member should prepare and write out a written report for submission from 15 - 19 September 2008 (depending on your lecturer). Although it is an individual assignment, the group leader should collect all the written assignments from each group member to be submitted as ONE.

In your group (if you have 4 members)*, let:
(1) student #1 write and present the INTRODUCTION,
(2) student #2 write and present the MAIN PART #1 and ITS MINOR PARTS (if any),
(3) student #3 write and present the MAIN PART #2 and ITS MINOR PARTS (if any), and
(4) student # 4 write and present the CONCLUSION (how product works etc. Please refer to your module).

*if you have 5 members,
(4) student #4 write and present the MAIN PART #3 and ITS MINOR PARTS (if any), and
(5) student #5 write and present the CONCLUSION.

or in extreme cases, 6 members,
(5) student #5 write and present the MAIN PART #4 and ITS MINOR PARTS (if any), and
(6) student #6 write and present the CONCLUSION.

This will be returned to you the week after. Then as a group, compile all the information and produce a pamphlet of the product to be submitted on the presentation day (1 pamphlet per group)

All sections must have graphics that accompany the explanation (in the written report and pamphlet) and slides that go with the oral presentation (product presentation).


If there are any discrepancies with the information given by your lecturers, please feel free to ask your respective lecturers.
