In past few weeks between winter holiday and Chinese new year, Our group, which was constructed by 3 peoples (one person were not included because of the late vacation return and resulted and going into other group), were created in order to participate on IDU (Interdisciplinary Unit Project) project and was quested to find a problem inside ISB related discrimination and were supposed to find a solution and present with our teammates.
If i should access myself at collaboration, i should give me satisfactory according to the student as a learner rubric. The main reason is because me and my team tried really hard to include all the ideas that each of us had but there were still conflicts that hampered our collaboration. Once, we had a big conflict about changing our topic since one member insisted that our topic was too weak and lacked data to support our claim. However, the problem was that the other group members already finished their math and science parts of IDU and were ready to submit the work. (The insisting team member was also finished and was ready to submit but changed his mind) I first though that it was nonsense and said that it is impossible. However, after hearing the reason, i thought that it was kind of reasonable except one part. Which was that all group members needed to do their whole work again including the math and science which was due really closely. Also it was an inevitable fact that we will lack more than other teams since we had less time compared to the others. So, I made the agreement with the teammate by having the teammate helping us for the data part and to build the data up which we already worked on. I see this was my strength which was helping collaboration and teamwork inside team. This collaboration is very valuable since if the collaboration with my team broke, then it would result in more serious problems and will surely affect our final results and our grades. However, the part we need to work on is pretty clear too. Due to the schedule of our own, we didn’t had enough time to be together to check our work (The work as a group inside class was not enough). This problem we faced can be solved by working more inside class or cooperating in order to change our schedules.
If we rank the norms of collaboration we used, we can rank them as
Paying attention to self and others
Presuming positive intentions
Putting ideas in table
The easiest was the providing data part since we can easily collect data from the ISB inclusion survey and make them as graph data.
To conclude, I think the EDU project was a educational and collaborative with my teammates
