I thought it would be helpful to explain some lingo we use at university!
Lectures are similar to high school classes. The professor will talk through his/her lesson as you write notes. Some professors may use lecture notes or slide shows. Lectures are where you learn the majority of your course content.
Seminars and tutorials are very similar. They are lead by a teaching assistant (TA) or by the professor. It emphasizes small-classroom learning as there are only between 15-20 people in this class. The purpose of them is to review course readings and to discuss main concepts discussed in the course. It is a great way to get to know people in your classes as well.
4. Reading Week
Reading Week is where students have a week off from classes. This happens once every semester. It is a great opportunity to catch up on school work or get ahead. However, a lot of people will say this is the opportunity to relax and have a break.
Hope this blog is helpful in understanding a little bit about how university works! Especially how it works here at Brock 🙂
