    Janine,

    I feel Team Anime had miscommunications and needed to go back and reflect on our team contract. Accountability is a huge core value of our team, so I feel at this point on the semester we should feel comfortable and knowledgeable with the rules we set as our standard.

    • Interesting post and thoughtful reflection. As I think about your post, I sense that you are two groups as well a one team. Sometimes you feel like “we” is Team Anime and at other times “we” is based on your geographical reference point, the Arlington group — I wonder whether van Asperen thought that people would be all one category or another — or if people are so complex that they might act in different ways depending on the situation. Thoughts?

      • Very thoughtful reflection, thank you Janine. I feel I don’t really take notice of the use of “we,” when discussing or reflecting on projects. I just assume it’s an easier way than writing out all names. However, after reading Van Asperen’s article, I specifically remember a statement he made that stranded out the most in my mind. “Every person is unique,” as well as, “Cultural events, connotations and relationships are modified as a result of a continuous process of human interaction. Therefore, maybe I’m not doing justice by insisting “we” for different groups, and by stating each member’s name I recognize their uniqueness and the perspectives EACH teammate offers individually, as a whole to the group.

    • Carol – you do a great job of describing specific examples. I wonder if some miscommunication may have resulted from differing assumptions about what is meant by “timely” — in your team contract, did you identify a specific amount of time for responding? At the beginning of the course we talked about your team will need to have several communication channels – each for a different purpose. It sounds like you’ve discovered the limitations of What’s App — or what we’ve referred to a the What’s App trap!

      • Janine,

        I feel Team Anime had miscommunications and needed to go back and reflect on our team contract. Accountability is a huge core value of our team, so I feel at this point on the semester we should feel comfortable and knowledgeable with the rules we set as our standard. In regards to communication channels, we use Google docs frequently. It’s harder to meet up in person, so we all set a time period where we get onto google docs and work on the assignment. There were positive changes in communication from the timeline project to the photo essay, which I felt made this process a bit smoother.

    • “Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.” -George S. Patton
      Team Anime’s first intercultural team project was our first challenge; however, I believe we easily overcame the obstacles and presented a lovely globalization timeline. I take away from this project the importance of time management, asking intuitive questions, and accepting new roles. Again, all groups face the issue of interactions because we are in different time zones and have different schedules. This is completely understandable. It was challenging though, when teammates were not responding to our WhatsApp chat in a timely manner. For example, I had access to a video app, so I was taking on the role of designing the visual presentation of our timeline. We all agreed to send our voice memos and pictures by that Sunday; however, individuals didn’t communicate well and I didn’t receive many of them until Monday. Again, I’m very understanding and quick to putting myself in other’ shoes, but it is a bit frustrating when you don’t receive any reply. The issue was addressed and everyone understood that we should at least “favorite” the message so people saw it, and to check the WhatsApp more frequent. Also, we had to enforce Team Anime’s contract and the importance of personally communicating with teammates and equally participating in projects, in order to abide by our own words.
      Another challenge with miscommunication was understanding the assignment fully. When originally creating the timeline we were confused on how to select events: specifically as a global events or specific to just Groningen and Arlington? Each group member found 4-6 events each, which I was a great idea because we had diverse events and “I didn’t think of that moments” of globalization. Again, it gives a great new perspective and researching more about those events was fun too. I do believe that if we were to complete this assignment again, we should find a more organized way to write down the events. The google docs is convenient because everyone has access to it, but it was sloppy and when citing sources it wasn’t in order of events either.
      Communicating a better way will benefit us in future projects. Team Anime had miscommunications on scheduling and meeting deadlines, and as a group we needed to go back and reflect on our team contract. Accountability is a huge core value of our team, so I feel at this point on the semester we should feel comfortable and knowledgeable with the rules we set as our standard. In regards to communication channels, we use Google docs frequently. It’s harder to meet up in person, so we all set a time period where we get onto google docs and work on the assignment. Another important thing to consider is if one or two teammates can’t meet, it shouldn’t stop other groups members from meeting up and discussing the project, because continuing to develop ideas is important to building more understanding of the concept of globalization. Then, when all members meet up for the next face-to-face contact, new ideas can be proposed and continue to provoke conversation. All in all, I feel victorious with our first project together. Team Anime has lots of potential and I can’t wait for the Photo Essay:)

    • Hello Carolyn,
      What wonderful discoveries your team made! It sounds like you had some thoughtful discussions on the topic, exactly what this course is for. I am curious though: do you think that isolated countries can also have been impacted by globalization? That the fact that they are isolated is a result of globalization in itself?
      Loez

      • What a great question, thank you Loes. I believe that can go both ways. For example, countries that have not joined the UN or even the issues concerning why it is illegal for North Korean citizen to leave their own country without the regime’s permission. Has this been results from negative effects of globalization? Again, I believe some countries chose to stay isolated because they feel whether it’s economic, social, technological, etc.., globalization, has not successfully contributed to their own country’s well being; therefore, isolation is the only goal. On the contrary, in high school we worked with the Enkijape School in Kenya, who was our sister school. Every summer a group of students went to visit the school and send over any necessary items. Though I never personally went, I did learn that one year we brought over iPads, and all students stood amazed and wide-eyed because they had never seen a tablet before in their lives. I believe this shows that there are locations ‘behind’ the globalization journey and have not been educated as other countries. Based on the environment and where they physically live, they might not have those tools to directly affect others, or be effected by acts of globalization.
