In starting this assignment, I discovered that despite being placed in the same space and observing the same scenario, we both experienced different take-aways and effects. It is interesting to note how one voice can carry so many different ‘affects,’ or emotions, for each person listening.
I appreciate having the opportunity to discuss our differing experiences as well as collaborate together to assess the key features of the event. I didn’t find the collaboration to be too challenging as we both were able to listen attentively and clearly outline our perspectives. I have gone to some MCC events in the past, but most of the time I have gone alone; so, being able to attend one with someone else and view it with a more metacognitive lens was more enjoyable and fulfilling.
