I have just finished evaluating my students’ projects and have posted the results on their portal and groups. Some of them are very likely to be unsatisfied and most of them hate me right now. But, there has to come a time like this in everyone’s life. And now my thoughts.
1. This semester I had my first seminar at a masters’ programe. It was nice, I’ve met some new people and also got in touch with other ways to look at the whole learning thing. Grades were not very high but neither was the quality of the papers I received. I think the Gauss curve was just about right. Anyway, even if we are talking about a Master Programe, students’ mentality is the same as the undergraduate students’, with a few exceptions.
2. I’ve also conducted for the fifth year in a row my Direct Marketing Seminar with the undergraduate students which was nice but when it came to listening to my advice they kinda failed. Not all of them of course, but many. This is why the grades at this object have reached an alltime low. I think it’s the lack of interest and this is very sad since Direct Marketing is all about developing skills and seems to be very helpfull regardless the carrier they choose.
I am looking forward for the next semester when I’ll get to meet the second year students and introduce them to the universe of Promotions. Also, I will be meeting the third year undergraduate students (part of them) which will be attending the Logistics seminar. I guess that’s that! Good luck with the exams people! And don’t forget to have fun!
