You didn’t see me around on the weekend because I went away.
To Lismore, actually.
To do a weekend residential for my Uni degree that apparently wasn’t as compulsory as implied, if the number of students who didn’t turn up is anything to go by.
But it was ok.
Our subject coordinator is lovely, very helpful and funny.
The other teachers were nice.
Although there were Macs everywhere – which personally, I’m not a fan of – I feel like I learnt something this weekend.
I’m just not sure this is what I want to do.
A Bachelor of Media, I am finding covers basic design, basic movie making, and basic journalism.
You can decide to spec in one of those areas.
I chose a Design major, but I was hoping for more than Youtube tutorials week in week out.
I could have done that myself and saved a lot of money.
I want to learn graphic design, maybe some animation for character design, website building.
Maybe I need to be doing an Information Technology course instead.
A more computer oriented course, given what I want to do.
It’s such a tough decision, because I don’t want to waste all this work that I’ve already done.
But at the same time, how long do you hold out hoping you’ll start to like it?
I never expected Adult Learning to be this difficult.
In school it was just , the teacher knows best and is right.
Now, I have a little bit more experience.
I am capable of questioning things we are taught and the methods used.
And to be honest, I’m not completely satisfied with either from my Institution.
Has any other Mature Aged Students felt this way?
Is it just because I’m an external student? Or because I’m just getting back into it?
