Critical Reflection on Learning in the Course (Draft)
The two objective that I have set at the start of this module are being able to step out of my comfort zone and improve my confidence which includes presentation skills. I have improvement on my confidence which includes presentation skills. Previously, I tend to stumble and add filler words into my presentation. Upon receiving criticism on them, I make sure to remind myself through many presentations that we have demonstrated in class. As what professor brad commented in class that “practice makes perfect”. Though I have achieved it, I should not be complacent. Because I will need to be confident in myself when I go for IWSP. Also, I should not be dishearten that I did not step out of my comfort zone. In my point of view, I was probably not very active in class. And I will need more time to work on it.
We are able to work together and get the job done despite having different timetable. Through this course, I realise we collaborate a lot on our project. We find different ways to communicate with one another. Instead of meeting each other to discuss, we do communicate via Whatsapp. What I learnt from this class is that, our team handled conflict well.
Using the Thomas Kilmann conflict modes, we are able to “expand range of possible options” (Ed, 2007) and also “achieve win/win outcomes” (Ed, 2007). I believe there are also times where we accommodate with one another to “maintain harmony” (Ed, 2007) or compromise to not harm the relationship.
All in all, I would hope to work with them again someday.
