    🤔 Reflection question

    How might the prototype & test stage help you with overcoming a fear of failure or challenging your assumptions about what is ‘right’?

    Basilona's Answer

    The necessity to test a concept before implementing it necessitates the use of prototyping. As a consequence of the testing, we are aware of their strategies for success, the challenges they experienced, and how we might overcome them in order to effectively execute a certain idea. Given the current situation and the many points of view, this problem was immensely critical.

    🤔 Reflection question

    How might ideation help you develop your active listening skills to brainstorm and reflect on ideas effectively with your team?

    Basilona's Answer

    Throughout the ideation stage, we came up with numerous ideas that we had not previously considered. It helped us improve our active listening skills because I had to listen to my team's thoughts and thought process when coming up with this idea. We then each contributed to that idea to make it stronger and more effective. Our team struggled with the Ideation stage, which required intense brainstorming to come up with different ideas and how each idea might fit in the ideate canvas. However, it aided us in thinking differently and coming up with new solutions to the problem. We listened to and discussed each other's ideas as we worked through the ideate template, and it was a great way to boost our team's active participation

    🤔 Reflection question

    How might you explain the value of you having a systems-thinking mindset when attempting to define and understand a complex problem?

    Basilona's Answer

    True, not all crises can be avoided, but by adopting this mentality and strategy, your team may be better prepared for many common occurrences. Adopting this approach and seeing a difficult topic from several perspectives may provide you with insightful new ideas, such as possible leverage points.

    🤔 Reflection question

    After learning about how to empathize with the people affected by your SDG’s social issue, how you might apply empathy to working with the members on your CTN Innovation Team?

    Basilona's Answer

    Empathizing is the ability to perceive the emotions and problems of another person. For this project, we identified various stakeholders and created an empathy map canvas for each of them. This streamlined our interactions with stakeholders and allowed us to gain a better understanding of their situation, needs, and expectations. When working with other members, we must always listen to what they have to say and consider their suggestions. By empathizing, we can compare all members' emotions and problems and work accordingly.

    🤔 Reflection question

    After completing the Mobius Strip exercise, what do you feel are next steps towards contributing to the community you care about?

    Basilona's Answer

     The mobius strip exercise, helped me to have a conclusion that we should be conscious of both our particular talents and aspirations as well as the challenges that the society as a whole is facing. It was wonderful to finish this task as well as it was exciting and fun.
