Day 297 Task – Introduction to Engineering 2nd Class

We are supposed to have a one hour class today, but since next week there is a public holiday, hence the one hour class from next week will be replaced in advance. Hence we have a 2 hour class today.

The 2 hour class is packed with the introduction on Cooperative Learning (CL) and student’s first group presentation – to introduce their team names, logo, regulation etc.

It was a fruitful energetic session. I have stayed online up to 2 hours and 35 minutes, extending my time for those who wanted to ask any questions etc.
