JOMOIM IS now almost domineering over our college life. In most classes, about 1/3 of the total grade evaluation consists of work done in Teams. Students strive to get good grades on each Jomoim rather than focusing on other class activities. To find out how important Jomoim is to students, the Annals asked students about their views on it.

   

Last semester, in my "American Culture and Art" class, my team prepared for a project on "American Works of Art" individually, and simply put the results together later because we were running out of time. In the end, my team failed to get a good grade because of our lack of cooperation. From this experience, I realized that cooperation is the essence of team meetings.

My department consists mostly of girls. Everyone knows that girls are usually more concerned about good grades than boys, so my department tends to be very competitive. Last semester, my team once skipped dinner and spent all night at school without sleeping just to get a good grade on our project. I even heard that when all seniors in my department have major class experiments, they put on name-tags to identify which teams they belong to. It shows how important team meetings are in my department.

As an exchange student, I experienced team meetings both in America and Korea. In Korea, students tend to be quick at everything and get the meetings done in a very short time. On the other hand, American students have more free time and are more relaxed during meetings. I personally prefer team meetings I've done in Korea.

Last semester, I once had this team meeting where only three people out of ten showed up. Despite this bad experience, I still like team meetings. Because I belong to the Dept. of Pre-Med, I always feel isolated from the rest of the school. For me, a team meeting is the only way to get to know people from other departments.

In college, a team meeting is the only opportunity to simulate actual activities practiced in real workplaces. In businesses, people reach a solution through cooperation based on fair relationships. Team meetings in college and actual meetings operated in businesses are very similar in that sense. Thus, having team meetings is a good practice for the future.

In my class, "Modern Korean History", there are 120 students. This is such a big class that it is difficult to teach in depth through lectures only. To solve this problem, there are team activities where students can form their own historical perspectives. Frequent discussions within teams lead students to share different opinions and strengthen communication skills.
