Learning Process at Sussex University

In Sussex, we treat people with respect and dignity - Susan Newell
Indeed, I give a credit plus to the implementation of the words given. Prof Susan Newell is one of my brilliant motivators in term of studying Information System. I never feel the euphoria before, reading books because I’m curious, asking questions because I would like to know,  or maybe answering cases to know whether mine is appropriate to the context or not. Thank you to her for an impressive impression in my first couples of weeks pursuing my master at Sussex University.

In Sussex, giving the wrong argument is a part of learning process. Asking (even) silly question also part of it. Lecturers never blame the students for making mistakes. Moreover, the most common words I’ve heard during the class session is: impressive, excellent, you’ve almost got it, etc. The best thing about this first two weeks is all about truly being yourself in the way doing the learning process. Everything must be done by ourselves, therefore, classes being a place where we discuss the reading material and the context about We’ve read. Everything is fun, everything is enjoyable. Mistakes are stepstone to improve and push ourselves, of course, beyond our limit. 

Once in Tuesday, in our programming class, I asked about two different concepts and why they are correlated each other. I remember when my lecturer gave the response, increased the volume of his and said:
“That is a top quality question!” 
And yes, after I asked, we spent the rest of our class to discuss it. I even couldn’t describe the sensation I felt at that moment. Well done, well done Sussex! Perhaps one of my biggest lucky is to have an opportunity to attend the class with all of the excellent system, motivating lecturer, and clearly awesome academic environment. 

Good luck for Everyday improvement!
