The method of teaching, which this module has utilized has resulted in an extremely effective process of learning. I think I have done more external research here than for any other module while at university. This is because, in order to understand properly what people are talking about each week, I have had to do… Read More
This module has definitely left me with lifelong skills. It has encouraged me to try to better myself, seeing what my fellow classmates/Housemates are capable of. It keeps you on your toes and makes you want to outdo yourself every week. I agree with you that this module has helped improve my writing skills. Being… Read More

Everyone worked hard not to look like an idiot in front of their peers, but more than that, they wanted… Read More
…other modules are boring. I have never been completely enthralled by a lecture given by the professors. Listening to the same voice and sitting in the same seat for 2 (or 3) hours used to send me into the most wondrous and incredible power-naps I have thus far experienced! However, this module really opens your… Read More
Wow! What a journey this module has been. I really feel that I have learned more here than in any previous module. Being able to go off on research what interests you and then write up your findings as you wish, really ignited an intrinsic drive to do well. As Jesse pointed out, all of… Read More
Thank You, Jesse, for coming up with an original way to conduct a module, and thank you to my co-students for all the stimulating debates that have happened during this module!!
