This week was a good week. Being able to finally sit down with my team and discuss our strategies for how we are going to win mikes bikes was awesome. Initially, as I stated in my first learning journal, I was sceptical about Mikes Bikes and the value it would provide versus a normal lecture however after practice week one I have discovered that I am really enjoying that hands on practical approach to learning.
Our first meeting as a team started off quiet but we soon realised we all shared the same desire to achieve and as Spreier et al (2006) says “this is a major source of strength." We have set some pretty lofty goals and developed what we believe will be a sound strategy to perform well. I am glad that we have a practice week as this will help us experiment as a team using all of our combined knowledge from solo mikes which will help us succeed. Blooms Taxonomy was relevant to this weeks teamwork. We progressed through a few of the stages when we were making the decisions in particular the knowledge, comprehension and application stages which are extremely relevant to this Mikes Bikes and in next weeks journal I will touch on the analysis and evaluation stages as we see the results of our decision making from the first rollover practice.
I am looking forward to the coming weeks as we put our plan into action and really begin to see what our team can do together.
