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 personal and educational history, hobbies, sport and recreational interests, 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 or interests, your current projects, and your future plans.
  • In making your decision about what information to share, consider how much you want to reveal about yourself and what is relevant to the context of this course.
Come on! It’s your turn!
