LO1: Did you identify your strength and weakness?
By creating a club, me and my group had to come up with new and innovative ideas. The economics club made us realize that we had a good knowledge of economics but needed to work on our presentation and teaching skills.
LO2:What was so challenging?
This activity was new and was one of the more sophisticated of the activities that were done in CAS. The organization of the class was important to maximize the teaching done in the club.
