Using the project as an experiment in teaching

For my future plans, this project has been ideal. It has required a great amount of collaboration with clients through the university, as well as understanding how budgets are distributed and bid for among projects. In addition, it helped to understand how language needs to be structured in order to teach another key principles. While an hour-long lecture would be more than enough to give a breakdown of principles, as well as provide examples, fitting it into a less than 5-minute video, however, required greater care and attention to language. The fact that this was a video, also meant that I had to pay attention to what images and meanings the words used conveyed, and how best to communicate that to someone who may have difficulty understanding them.

With my desire to go on to academic teaching, especially at the university level, this was an idea project.
