Building bridges for the future through collaborative projects
I consider my learning experiences from the FCGP very ‘flat’. I easily had access to lots of information on my topic as well as others. I was also able to communicate with a lot of different people around the world. Being able to work on a project with people from different states/countries was very new and exciting for me. I’m used to working on things with people around me in person, so being able to interact with others and work on a project online was a very new different experience. Although the FCGP is a great way to collaborate, there are some flaws. A lot of people that are involved in the projects will go weeks without interacting with fellow group members. I even reached out to some of the people in my group and they never replied.
