What an experience to be coming to the final stages of first semester. I have learnt quite a lot. Been introduced to a variety of experiences and knowledge to help me flourish in my new chosen career path. My team members have been really positive to work with and helped me look at different perspectives and views. I have been working with some brilliant minds and this has given me some pretty good ideas to work with at a future date.
I have been introduced to some inspirational people who have a great outlook in life and are not scared to try something new. I was really impressed with presentations by both Leah Callon-Butler and Albert Ong and the drive they have to succeed. This was inspirational and gave me a greater desire to continue on this path and helped me realise I am choosing the right path.
Alex, Dante, Sophie and Charlie have been the best team mates I could ever ask for. We all had our strengths and weaknesses and used these to get the most out of our learning. I hope to work with this group a lot more throughout the course.
I have had an emotional rollercoaster in regards to my beliefs and views towards issues with future cities. I felt like pulling my hair out at times as I can see that improvements can be made everywhere. Doing the 2nd assignment brought to my attention the amount of waste that is present within society and how organisations are struggling to deal with future population issues. By minimising waste we can reduce this fear of being under resourced for growth and focus on applying world changing technologies to benefit the environment.
Week 8 is here and working through assignment 2 and starting to enjoy me experiences with this subject. It is great learning new things and experiencing the thoughts of industry experts through presentation has been really rewarding. It is allowing me to develop ideas and to work in a great team. Going through the processes learnt has been really fun.
Thanks for this knowledge and insight. This will really have a positive effect on my learning experience and benefit the rest of my life. Can only imagine the progress that will be made after being introduced to new concepts and frameworks. Inspiration can have a great effect on an individual or a group. The quality of presentations have been really good and inspirational.
What a difference a few weeks can make. I am learning new and interesting things and I am really enjoying all the new things that I am learning.
The first week, well that was quite interesting. I had no idea what the hell I was doing. I was trying to grasp information and would miss what was being said next. That was ok though. As I knew I could read up on Canvas when I got home.
What a relief. Some great classmates to work with, and a lot of brilliant minds. My expectations where a little different, but this is better. Who knew we would be looking at future cities. This opened my eyes to really observe my surroundings and not just walk by.
This has made me already think differently about technology and has started to bring back drive. I was flat, I was worn out and felt worthless with what I had been in the past. It is my time now and I want to use my mind for good and see what I can achieve. Finally feeling happy after such a long time being a miserable wreck with Defence.
BTi at UTS. How exciting.
Reading through the course guidelines, I have no idea what to expect. There isn't that much info available. All I can imagine is that it will be different from what I've been doing. Yes it will take me out of my comfort zone.
With 1000 things going through my mind. Will I cope? I will be old. I have no idea what I will be doing? Will I be making new technology products? Or maybe be doing a lot of coding? Hopefully I have made the right decision.Only time will tell.
I will be competing with a lot younger minds. Will I be able to keep up and finish what I started?
I am finally going to do something that I have chosen for myself. I did the research and what I read was interesting. It is time for me to shine.
Only time will tell.
