RDM– Brining together MBE
RDM was different. The module gave MBE the opportunity to work together as a whole rather than as MBE- A or B. It was an opportunity to interact and work with MBE students that we had hadn't previously worked with. I am in MBE-B and I knew my little seminar class of 24 students so well. I was extremely comfortable working with any of these 24 students as I was quite familiar with their working styles. But RDM required us to break out of this tiny shell that we had created for ourselves over the last few months. I must say it was quite exciting yet challenging.
I was looking forward to working with new people but at the same time I was quite skeptical as well. Especially since my group had majority of the pople I hadn't previously worked with I wasn't too much at ease at first. I wasn't too familiar with the nature of the people I was going to work with and it required me to break out of my comfort zone. However, too my great astonishment working within this team was quite a learning experience. I had a fantastic team and I was comfortable within few minutes of the start of our first meeting itself. Ofcourse we had our 'Eureka' moments and some some rought times as well but regardless it all eneded up in something constructive. I had the opprotunity to work with some very smart, , responsible and efficient team members. There was so much I learning invovled. Their dedication and passion towards the goal was admirable.
I look back at the transition that has happened over the days during the RDM module. From being resistant to change to the one now embracing change and ofcourse not to forget the ongoing learning process that has been taking place simultaneously. But then again I wonder have I really embraced the change or has the change integrated itself with time. Am I back in the comfort zone? Will I experience the same emotions and go through the same process if I am given a new set of people to work with? Because change is inevitable. Anyhow, I must praise Jeff for desinging the module in a mannder that gave way to new opportunities and new learnign experiences.
