This class became more stressful than I thought it would be, but I’m glad I took it. I have grown as a group member through this class and, out of all the classes I took this past semester, I think this one helped me the most for my future after college. Thanks Martha for a great year, and good luck wherever you go. See you at graduation!
We are getting a lot of things done. Both Liz and I have figured out what we’re doing for social media, and we’re planning to create 10 posts together over Spring Break. Fele and Haley are starting to set up interviews for videos that will start getting posted BIWEEKLY after break. I’m really excited to see what we all accomplish over break. Also…..HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARTHA! YOU ARE A GOLDEN GIRL!
There was no prompt so I guess I’ll update. This week has been better. We have now established a better plan of what we’re doing. Haley and Fele are doing something for video editing while Liz and I are starting to work on social media using Canva. The group dynamic is kind of weird because we haven’t found the time to actually hang out outside of class and get to know each other. So it kind of feels like work instead of TEAMwork. Hopefully things will change as we start executing our plans for the project.
We started talking about our fears and anxieties for this project today. Honestly a lot of thing scare me. I don’t like the free reign we’ve been given to do this project, because it just means there’s a lot of things she may not like about our ideas. Honestly, I’m happy this is group work, because it makes me more prone to come up with ideas and keep up with all of the work. I forget a lot, so this makes me more accountable for this project. Thankfully, we have a lot of time, so it’ll be fine. My group just needs to start actually coming together in our free time and talking about this project instead of only talking to each other during class and collaborating for homework.
Share how your group’s brainstorming process went in class on Tuesday.
It honestly went really well. I was really concerned about how we would be able to do this project to the best of our abilities with the time we have left but, now, we have a better idea of what we want to do. We’re splitting into pairs to better focus on the small aspects of what our client wants, which will help lead to a bigger picture in the end. I’m actually really excited to see what we come up with by Tuesday!
