Sara Fay - MiM Classroom Experience
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So today we're gonna talk about my classroom experience working only staying in my classroom. So a lot of my classes have actually been online on Zoom, which is different than you'd expect. Um, I think just because these graduate courses a lot of them are financing their mafi, and that's very hard to do over Zoom, I think. Our professors have done a really good job of trying their very best to make all these classes really accessible and easier to learn, even if they are over Zoom. Then I'm also going to talk about the fact that we've done hybrid a little bit and I'll show you guys what that looks like. First of all my assume essentials Coffee cup very necessary. My coffeemaker is literally right over there, which one of the best parts about having zoom cuts whenever you need caffeine and you will need a lot of it? It's easier to access after that I have in Washington D. C snow globe that I picked up when I was in eighth grade, and I came here on my class trip and I decided I wanted to live in D. C. I like to keep that. Now I have a couple of my favorite books to look at just because alright, that always perks me up just to see some of my favorite sort of writers so close to me that I have fresh flowers which really brighten up the room, I promise at makes a massive difference. I have a week planner and it's always open to the week so I can put all of my days and I can just swivel, which is really useful. What's the time now with my professor says something Here I twist and write it down because they do come up with lots of assignments and you need to be ready to write it all down. Uh, other than that, I have a couple picture frames, some candles, and behind me, I have a lot of books that I enjoy every day. So that's kind of what my zoom experience looks like. I have some class, usually two a day, and so they're in the afternoon. So I've been lucky enough to have two of my classes be hybrid, and we're going to have a third. Um, so I get to take classes there, and it's amazing. So I get to walk to campus and walk into the McDonough School of Business, which is a really cool, just incredible building. So I love having class in there, and I get to work in there and steal my classmates in person, which is really nice. Then we had that in the afternoon for some days, which is great. Um, so in terms of what my classes look like, what do you do it like So some of them are more luxury, and some of them are more discussion based. It kind of depends on the Professor, and it also depends on the day. Sometimes my finance classes are basically all lecture, and he really doesn't need to have anyone speak because he's just teaching you the concepts. It is very disorienting, especially resume, but it just means that you have to pay attention. You do all the readings, so it's kind of good motivation to do all of that. You have some professors that want a lot of interaction with the students. You know they're going to call you, or there's gonna ask questions and see who raises their hand. That really matters, because participation is a big part of your grade for that class, or I have other classes where participation isn't even taking into account my grade. So it just kind of depends in terms of student faculty ratio. It usually just one professor, and I think there's 67 of us. So I do need to know my professors, which seems surprising given the massive size of the class. I was emailing one of my professors yesterday because I had a question about an assignment due next week, and he was really funny and resupplying with emojis and stuff to show that he was really excited that I was asking him this far in advance about the project. So I do get to know my professors, which has been really nice, especially because some of them are so so funny. One of her professors at the beginning of the program, Mr McDermott, had us do a little puppy parade, a little dog parade because he has a very cute dog and his dog was always kind of in the background on Zoom. So for our last class, he had everybody bring their pets and show their pets on screen, and it was just the cutest, most wholesome way to and demand. I feel like I get into some of my professors, even if it is just a presumed and don't have the luxury of walking into their in person office hours. They also have zoom office hours, so that's been really great in terms of graduate courses, underground forces. Our finance professor informed us that he teaches us the surface level and were expected to know three levels down. They give you a ton of reading, you go off and you go of those concepts yourself, and then you come to the next class ready to use those concepts. It's a lot of work, and they don't lay it all out for you at the beginning of the bond is what I'll say. Um, certain professors like to tell you everything at the beginning, and they like to give you a very detailed plan when some of your assignments to do and some of them not. I've done that several times and they're really but thank you for coming to my classroom experience all my zoom room experience and I'll see you next time.
