IDP Reflections: Development of Skills and Competencies – Pt. 1

Q: What were the most valuable things you learned from doing the project?

I think the most valuable thing I learned was working with an international team. Throughout my technical writing courses, I’ve worked with groups, but this was different because we had to deal with certain things such as time zones, language barriers (as in, British Standard English and American Standard English), and working with students translating documents. It also made me think about certain situations, such as emergencies. We came close to one during our group (more details here), but fortunately, all ended well. If it was more serious, then it would have definitely changed the dynamics of the group and the project overall.
