I lecture people in university… which is hilarious, given that my own experience of school was a tad….rocky. Hehe.
BNU Business and Law School focus on business and law related teaching, research and professional programmes for students and industry. I have been a guest lecturer for the last 3 years, and I love seeing the students “wake up” from when they first slouch in, slump down and lean back with crossed arms….. to in the end when they are engaged, asking LOADS of questions , smiling and nodding.
I tell them that from now on, they are on their own. They ALONE are responsible for what happens to them. They are IN CHARGE of where they are going from here, and nobody will spoon feed them anything anymore. Gone are the days of “group assignments” and “class tests”.
“From now on….you are flying solo.”
Some of them love it. Some look concerned. Some terrified. But ALL of them think about what I said.
And I LOVE watching the growing realisation of being in charge of your own future.
