✏️ Hi! I am Asst Prof Tan Yu Jun. I am new to the department, and I have just started to give lectures this semester. I like gardening and interacting with my pet when I am at home.
❓ What was the most memorable experience you had while in university?
✏️ When I was in the university, I always hang out with my friends. We formed study groups, celebrated birthdays, went out for late-night suppers, and made lots and lots of fond memories. I remember times when close to the finals, we woke up early in the morning to “chope” our favourite tutorial room so that we can study in our “territory”. Woah I cannot imagine all these happened about 10 years ago!
❓ Share one interesting thing that you have been working on recently!
✏️ I am researching how to teach undergraduate and graduate students lately. I had 3 months of experience teaching primary school students, but teaching adults are so much different and interesting. I am learning how to deliver information effectively, how to engage students in the learning process, and how to assess the students’ understanding. It is a fulfilling process, and hope that you are enjoying my classes so far if you are taking my modules (ME2102 and ME5517).
❓ What is one piece of advice you would like to offer to ME students?
✏️ Enjoy your university life! Study hard so that you can get yourself a decent job later. Play hard and make lots of friends so that you can support each other - not only for the 4 years of your undergraduate but for your whole life.
