And now the first week of teaching is over.

Before the storm.

What do I have to report?

The students are well-behaved (so far) and are very disciplined, most wearing their dark engineering jacket uniforms. They adhere to procedure quite well to, even if registering for classes seemed to be a haphazard affair. They spent little time appointing a class representative among themselves. And the class reps were easy to communicate with via smartphone messaging apps.

I was quite apprehensive of presenting the module to the students, especially in trying to get the lessons delivered relevant to each class's course as each class belonged to a different engineering or business course, and I had to customise the delivery and how I presented examples to each class. And my gamemastering experience also helped, I believe.

Ultimately I discovered that the key to a good lesson presentation is to brush up one's stand up comedy skills.

nice! LOL i hope you didn’t picture any of them naked as given they’re your students n stuff, that might be a little unethical. :-)

Comedy for the win. No real surprise there since comedy has been teaching people since before we conjugated verbs. I wish you great luck!
