Faculty Development Days Reflection (Part 2)

From FEAR to FAITH: Reflection on Faculty Development Day (Nov 23, 2020) by Ms Napitchaya Su Panum, EAST Faculty

I joined EAST in October 2019 with little teaching experience. It was my first time being on the other side of a seminary classroom! The fear of inadequacy was one of the biggest challenges for a “teacher-in-training” like me.

However, through my experience during FDD, I learned that the “Guide on the Side” facilitating skill is the real art and science of teaching and learning that I need to develop.

5 Fitness Tips from Rev Estella Liu

During our final Chapel of this semester, Rev Estella Liu, a faculty member of EAST who is part of EAST Extension Center led everyone in an exercise segment before Chapel started. We asked her for her top five fitness tips:

  1. Exercise with someone close to me. I cannot do it alone.
  2. Join a diet group which requires me to post everything I put in my mouth.
  3. Download a work-out App and choose suitable ones to follow. I had to change to a lighter routine when my back hurt.
  4. Keep the nice but tight dresses (pants for the gentlemen) to encourage myself to wear them again someday.
  5. Sleep early and get up early. This I wish I can do but it has not happen yet!
