Hello again! If you read last week's post, you will know that I went on a school trip with a few of my peers to the University of East Anglia in Norwich last week for an introduction to philosophy! I was asked to write a review of the trip and thought that it would be a good idea to share that review with you guys, seeing as though it captures everything I would have said in this post anyway. Here it is:
WHAT I ENJOYED
I enjoyed the day, most specifically, I enjoyed the talk on what university life is like; this talk definitely finalised my decision of going to university! I also enjoyed the segment on animal ethics. As someone who has a very one-sided opinion on how animals should be treated, it certainly got me thinking when I was put into the group who were 'for killing animals for meat.'
WHAT I FELT COULD HAVE BEEN IMPROVED
Overall, I feel that the trip was a great success and it was clearly evident that the people behind it had spent a lot of time planning it, however I don't feel it was ‘perfect’. I feel that the presentation by the philosophy teacher (I don't remember his name) could have been improved and maybe altered to cater for the audience it was supposed to be aimed at. Compared to the other presentations, this seemed very dull and verbal. I feel it could have perhaps benefitted from slight alterations and incorporations of more lively activities and/or a few visual aids.
WHAT I GOT OUT OF THE TRIP
I enjoyed the trip very much, and it definitely captured my interest in most things which were being said. For me, I felt that I benefitted from the trip in the way that it made up my decision of going to university and it also got me thinking about what was being said; it definitely opened up my mind a lot more than it was when I walked in at the beginning of the day.
