Round One Draws to a Close

We concluded the first semester Synergy Projects.  To celebrate each group completing a short film, we had a mini film fest where the students watched their film and their peers films.  Students were expected to to complete the following self-reflection as well as feedback for their peers using the following:

Synergy Final Assessment

Film Fest Feedback

Things that we learned:

  1. Clear guidelines prior to starting the project.
  2. Team building and scaffold skills for designating roles for each team member.  This would be to encourage equitable work loads and an opportunity for each team member to participate in all aspects of each project.
  3. Use the project as a vehicle for fostering the Curricular Competencies (design thinking) and Core Competencies.
  4. Provide opportunities for developing technical skills required for editing and capturing footage.
