More on Project 1: Scavenger Hunt (Reflection)

Here are a few photos from yesterday’s critique on Project 1! I thought all of the groups did a fantastic job, and I was very proud of my own group for our hard work and effort.

Also, I did recap the project in my last post, but here is my formal reflection on Project 1 which was included in my booklet:

“Overall, the scavenger hunt project was a great learning experience. It was quite challenging to have an assigned system to keep in mind while also trying to be creative and hunt for all of the necessary letters. In other words, you had to think outside of the box to find the letters, but you were also put into a box by your group’s assigned style. Being given a style also meant considering how to best represent it and making conscious choices to do so. This was good practice for paying attention to detail as well as keeping in mind the bigger picture.

I think the most important experience this project provided, however, was the opportunity to work in a team setting. This project would have been very different if we were asked to work as individuals rather than in an assigned team. Working through the obstacles together and making key decisions as a group was great practice for what may be to come in the future as we graduate and find jobs in the real world. Collaborating and combining all four of our visions is what ultimately made this project successful. This project also brought to light the importance of time management and planning while under a deadline. There were many different aspects of the project that had to be taken into consideration, such as having the photos, working on a reflective blog post, and communicating with your group during the process. The project being multi-faceted helped stress the importance of flexibility and organization while taking on a project. “
