So based on the title itself, our Innovation Day was held on the third of June 2016 which was three days ago. We are asked to arrive at Dewan Budiman at 8 am to prepare the hall and ourselves before the guests come. As we are in charge of the protocol, we distributed the work evenly beforehand. The guests arrive at 9 am and by then we were already prepared. The event kicks off with a few speeches and introduction with the objectives of the event. Earlier on, each groups were already given their order of presentation. We were the second last group to present. The thought of it is just nerve-wrecking!
As we were told earlier, we are supposed to make our presentation creative. With 10 minutes allocated for each group, we decided to pitch for at least two minutes and eight minutes for our video. Therefore, we decided to make our introduction a bit different than others, as we decided to do a catwalk to showcase the title of our video, Travel, Food and Diet. For travel, Novelia and Marjan catwalk with their luggages; food, Sharifah Atirah and Wirda ate and shared their meals and lastly for diet, Naufal pose in a pilates move whereas I pose with the dumbbell. The pitching was done by Naufal and I. I find our presentation really exciting and eye-catching as everyone was paying attention from the beginning till the end of our presentation. I believe that we could have done better in the execution of our pitching but we did our best and I am pretty sure we stole the show at the moment there.
The other groups also excel in presenting their video and pitching session. I personally enjoyed Fatin Kamilia's and Fikri's group video presentation as I find it very informative and enjoyable. Fatin Kamilia's group video was based on how to save up and travel economically whereas Fikri's is on influential friends and how money can change a person. All in all, everyone did great. Right after every presentation, judges gave each group scores as a few of my classmates perform to kill time. Naufal recited two poems whereas Hasmirah sang, "Let It Go" by Demi Lovato. A short video presentation was presented done by the multimedia team. It was based on the fourteen weeks we spend together and how this course affected us.
The moment of truth.
The nerve-wrecking, spine-chilling moment.
It was time to announce the winner.
Once the Dean of Education arrive and said her piece of mind, the announcement of the winners came to place. Fatin Kamilia's group won first place whereas Fikri's, third place! Congratulations guys! Unfortunately, we did not manage to get a place however as what everyone would normally say, the experience is what that matters. I believe that we could have won a spot if our video was more informative and if the message is more clearer and educational. However, great job Sharifah Atirah in editing the video as from my perspective, our video was top-notch!
All in all, what I learnt so far in the execution of this event is that compromise and teamwork is important. There will always be flaws in any events however it is the flaws where we learn to improve ourself better for future events. Teamwork is important especially when you work with a large number of people with different interest and view plus perspective from you. However compromising with one another is what one should do get a mutual agreement or understanding. Although we may have different opinions on certain things, but we manage to tolerate and accept others views and try to take each opinion seriously. It is sad that all good things have to come to an end. This event marks the end of the course.
I enjoyed every bit of this course as I have learnt a lot not only in terms of educational technology but also in terms of friendship and teamwork. This course have exposed me into different environment, with many mini adventures and treasurable memories. With that, I end this reflection with a smile on my face; with hopes that we all will ace this course with flying colors.
