Women’s studies: Course Project Reflection
This write-up is my course project reflection in an informal first person account. Here I discuss how this project enriched my learning experience through an unconventional way of learning and the obstacles that I faced while prepping for this work.
This learning experience was unconventional because it required us to collect information, research and complete a project in phases throughout the semester. Most projects that I have worked on in the past have been completed with specific deadlines and the project was just completed in one stretch. This project is very different from other research assignments, which I have done so far. This project requires me to complete it in steps. This way the project and the way I worked were in my mind throughout my semester. It was not like picking a topic and writing it in a week and submitting it. I researched throughout the whole semester for this work. It required me to develop my own argument, which I constantly kept revising. I was my own critique and I was guided by my instructor comments in this. Argument support from scholarly evidence also helped me in the revisions. My learning process was incremental here.
