Reflecting on MC’s team experience

I can’t believe the semester is almost over!!! This journey has been so rewarding but so exhausting at times. And I’m happy we are getting to a point where we get to wrap things up, look at what we created and present it to other people. I feel like my team has done amazing. The way we have managed to work together since the first day we became a team has been very eye-opening to me and now I won’t ever lower my standards as to how group projects have to be 

Everyone worked so hard on their research and their role in the project while being so graceful and compassionate, and I appreciate that a lot. I usually have the busiest Tuesdays and Thursdays during the week, since I work from 9 to 6, have class 6:30 to 8:30 and then group meeting at 8:45. Although by the time I got to our meetings, I was drained, the team was always understanding and appreciative of the progress I made, whether it be on the website or my research. Last week, Bri has the brilliant idea to create an inventory of the github website to look at it together and have a list of what still needs to be worked on/changed. I found that extremely helpful and it allowed me to make a lot of changes to the website. It now has such a different look and feel and as Asma said “It’s like watching a child grow”. I’m just very happy that the team is liking where the website is going and I appreciate all the feedback.

We recorded two more episodes for the podcast. This allowed me to combine all my data points and think more about how I wanted to present them. We then talked about our vertical timeline and each chose three data points that we wanted to include.

I’m very excited for the Digital Showcase Presentation!! Bri has done an amazing job on the slides and I can’t wait to see it.

I also wanted to congratulate all the groups for their amazing projects. I looks forward to seeing your presentations.
