Project Community 2014

Good day all of you!

Today is the first day of Project Community 2014. I am very much looking forward to confusiasm and share in the learning process of you, a fresh group of students. The introduction week last week has been a good week for community building and provided us all a headstart on how to work well in groups. You have already given it some thought and have designed principles which could form the foundation of the group-work. This is a very good starting point for discussing and experiencing what works well. To remind you I have added a few pictures below of the principles that resonated with me and were clear communicated through design. 

Last year I had written one post (in total) prior to the start of the project stating some principles, I will repeat and tweak them so you know what to expect from me: 

- Never too old to learn; reflect on (project community) experiences and extract learnings from it together, either with colleagues, students or on my own; sharing these insights every week via this platform.

- Fully present; dedicating my attention and focus towards that what is happening at that moment; inviting everyone to do the same. 

- The overview effect: bear in mind the end/bigger goals and frame experiences or questions in a bigger picture. 

Enjoy a great start of the project all!

Project Community – my personal intentions

Project Community - my personal intentions:

I’m at the start of a new run of Project Community. September 2013, a day after my parents both celebrated their 60th birthdays, which allows me to reflect a little more on my experiences in life and learnings along the way. 

I’m hoping to learn or stick to the following principles the next module: 

- Never too old to learn; reflect on (project community) experiences and extract learnings from it together, either with colleagues, students or on my own - but always willing to share.
- Fully present; dedicating my attention and focus towards that what is happening at that moment. 
- The overview effect: bear in mind the end/bigger goals and frame experiences or questions in a bigger picture. 

For the final principle I’ve added a video that I find very inspirational and soothes me when looking at it. Looking forward to sharing the next couple of intense first weeks with people who are eager to start and work hard!
