1st ULAB 3162 sec 29 Activity

Instead of me telling students what oral presentation is, the students got to share information or teach their classmates about oral presentation. They did a good job with role play and marvellous presentation.  Hope to see more creative performance in the near future since they are Build Environment students who are known to be  artistic compared to others.






I missed taking photo some of the groups since I was so engrossed listening to their presentation.
