Visual documentation and reflection on the collaborative brainstorming process as discussed in post 8.


{group brainstorming}

group-brainstorm_edite
(Yanovsky, Grieve, Dakkak, Stollery & Tan 2016) We all wrote down our individual ideas for each other’s propositions onto one sheet of paper, as our focusses, objectives and goals were quite similar.

Strengths.

  • we were able to easily understand what each member wanted to achieve
  • ideas overlapped across several members’ projects which meant we were quite efficient

Weaknesses.

  • if we had done separate brainstorming for each group member, perhaps we would have forced ourselves to think further and go deeper into issues, and thus have a richer and more insightful session

Lessons learned & things to do better next time.

  • when taking photos, make sure they are legible!

{notes from group brainstorming}

group-brainstorm_notes-1
(Tan 2016) Before brainstorming, each of us shared our focus/objective/goal regarding what we wanted to achieve in our design response.
group-brainstorm_notes-2
(Tan 2016) As we brainstormed, we noted down ideas and thoughts which were applicable to our own projects.

Strengths.

  • before the group brainstorming session, I had many thoughts about what I wanted my design response to achieve, but had not had a concrete goal – it was helpful to look through past notes and research and consolidate my thoughts into a few sentences

Weaknesses.

  • reflecting on my notes, I realised there are quite a bit (particularly on the left page) which I could have researched further
  • failing to constantly refer back to my notes are¬†weaknesses¬†I realised I need work on

Lessons learned & things to do better next time.

  • the more rigourous the brainstorming session, the more insightful, helpful and rewarding it will be
  • note-taking is good, but it will not be helpful unless I remember to refer to them
  • while moving forward, keep continuously referring to past notes, research and findings

{further individual brainstorming}
