As we come to the end of the semester and POSIEL, I find myself reflecting on the course and everything I have learned.
Firstly, I want to say that I had a lot of fun, both in the class and doing my weekly public posts and assignments. This class was definitely the most enjoyable class I had this semester, and doing the coursework didn’t even feel like work!
I think what made this course enjoyable was the ability to write about whatever was of interest to me, every single week. Normally I hate ambiguity and love structured assignments, but this course definitely changed my opinion.
The freedom to explore myself, my interests, and my digital identity was fun and refreshing.
However, despite this freedom, I am still walking away feeling as though I learned a significant amount about both publishing and web design.
As mentioned in my first few process posts regarding site set-up, I am definitely not tech savvy. However, because of this course I now know how to build a website, update a website, how to operate Google Analytics, and much more.
I am also no art or design student either. However, through this class I was able to learn some core design principles, such as UI and UX.
These are important skills and are applicable to not only publishing, but also everyday life in this digital age we live in.
I also enjoyed the interactivity of the course. I enjoyed learning what was going on in the news from my peers at the start of every class, as I am sometimes not as attuned as I would hope to be. It is also interesting to hear these things from peers, and gain their unique perspectives on the topics.
Overall, I am incredibly happy that I chose to take this course. Moreover, I will be taking the skills I learned in this class with me and onto other endeavours.
But that begs the question: What about Mik’s Mind?
What is the future of this site now that POSIEL is over?
Well, like I said, I greatly enjoy writing my public, health-related posts. So why would I stop now!
While I may not be uploading as frequently as I have been, this definitely won’t be my last post.
So stay tuned!
