It’s time to introduce Yourself
The point of an introduction is to establish yourself as a unique individual sharing the course with other unique individuals. Here is some information you may consider sharing: • Personal biography: your place of birth, family history, educational history, hobbies, sport and recreational interests, how long you have been at the university, and what your plans are for the future. • Educational biography: how you came to specialize in your chosen field, a description of your specific area of expertise, your current projects, and your future plans. • In making your decision about what information to share, consider how much you want them to know and how much you want to reveal about yourself.
Come on! It’s your time!
