As we begin a new semester, I would like to be officially the first person to say that group projects SUCK. I will begin my last semester of college next week and am already dreading the group work that I know lies ahead. That being said, I think I’m a pretty effective group member: competent, on-time and willing to work. However, group work gets a bad rap because not every member has those characteristics. If you are not looking forward to the group work that is in store for you this semester, I’m going to outline how you can be an effective group member AND how you can cope with having less-than-effective group members.
If you get me talking for more than five minutes, chances are I will mention at least one podcast. I listen to podcasts like they’re going out of style. I have been introduced to several different podcasts and have discovered many on my own. Today, I have compiled a list of my seven most recommended, interesting podcasts and included some of my favorite episodes. If you are also a frequent podcast listener, I’d love to hear your recommendations. As you will soon conclude from my list, I am enjoy listening to podcasts that teach me something. If you find yourself constantly wanting to learn new things and are fascinated by the world around you, put your seat belts on kids, you’re in for a good one.
