Weekly Reflection #2

How did you do on the work?
I think I did pretty well on the work this week. The play dough lab really helped me visualize what was going on with transcription and translation. I was having trouble grasping what exactly was happening during those processes, but now it is much better. Vodcast 4.3 has a lot of new terminology, so it will definitely take me a little bit of time to get all of the new terms locked in my head. I probably will need to make flash cards with all of the new terms in order to really learn them.
What do you think you understand well?
I think I understand the genetic engineering aspect of this vodcast and the different methods used to genetically engineered organisms. I also think I have a better understanding of transcription and translation after this week’s activities which is good because that is what I was struggling with last week.
Where do you think you could improve?
I think I could improve my understanding of the first part of vodcast 4.3. In this vodcast, we focused on biotechnology and tools, so it is a lot of vocab and processes that I need to spend a little bit longer reviewing.
What strategies will you use to improve?
I think I could improve by completing certain sections of a vodcast in one sitting. During the first part of vodcast 4.3, I did part of it one day and then waited almost a week to do the rest of that part. It made it difficult to remember exactly what I had been working on.
How does the work we are doing fit into the context/ narrative of the course?
The work we are doing in this unit is super important in the future of biology. It is going to completely change how we combat diseases.
