of feedback and criticism

Since I started my study in MARJON, I learn a lot about reflective teaching and learning. You can read more from Pollard and Tann’s book, “Reflective teaching in the primary school: a handbook for the classroom”.

This link will take you directly to the book in Amazon. LOL.

So, the book is our textbook. Ouh remind me to send all the library books by 2nd October. We were asked to write learning log. Like a diary. Well you can call it a learning diary as well. They won’t check your diary and respect your privacy but it’s me who didn’t write much. Hahah.

What do we write in learning log?

What we gain from the sessions. What we like and dislike. As short or as long as you want (er, am I allowed to say ‘as’ three times in here?). We were encouraged to be outspoken, challenge our knowledge and seek more. We no longer live in ‘spoonfeeding’ classroom. Studying in MARJON gives me more room to explore and vent. It’s not a crime at all. They appreciate it very very much.

Feedback form

By the end of the module or during the submission of an assignment, we are asked to write an evaluation form. If you don’t, by the time we are supposed to get our assignment mark, Michelle the INTED (International Education Department) secretary will say “those who haven’t write their feedback form will not get their results, thankyouverymuch!”. Omaigod, I thought they don’t care if I don’t send a feedback form but actually they count. PWN3D!!! So that’s how we help them in order to help us. We improve each other. If we don’t tell them what do we feel, obviously there’s not much room for improvement. They (INTED) want to know how much the module has helped us. Simple as that. Critical criticism is what I filled in. Take this note: bashing and critical criticism has a very big difference.

MARJON culture (or UK?)

Recently I made complaint regarding the MARJON website layout to the webmaster. Guess what? He replied me the very next day. Just like Royal Mail 1st class mail option. Hahah. He replied me with a thank you and tell me that my feedback will be forwarded to the web team. What a manly man.

Wonder what I wrote?


The quotation “simplicity is beauty, beauty is the art” is not my quotation. The credit will be given to c4f, who gives me support in improving my college website from disgrace. I would say my email is a bit harsh, like Cowell’s comment, but they’re fine with it I reckon.

I want to thank them for their supportive and warming email, as a reply for my fiery feedback email. It’s all about improvement. Well, who doesn’t want to?

Dengan nama Allah, Yang Maha Pemurah, lagi Maha Mengasihani.

[1] Demi Masa! [2] Sesungguhnya manusia itu dalam kerugian; [3] Kecuali orang-orang yang beriman dan beramal soleh dan mereka pula berpesan-pesan dengan kebenaran serta berpesan-pesan dengan sabar.

  1. People who are willing to accept critism will always move forward, instead of people who don’t.

    Do u think they’ll take action based on users feedback? Mana la tau sehari dia kena swarm dengan 300-400 feedback screwing their asses. Hahah.
