- Great project! It’s original, makes you think, and challenges you in a different manner than a standard paper would. It also challenges you to learn to work well with others.
- I really liked the video project. It was a visual way of learning (which is the way I prefer). It really helped me better understand the myth my group and I were assigned at the beginning of the semester. No suggestions! And I encountered how hard it is to get the whole group together at one time, but we made it work in the end.
- I [preferred] it to traditional papers and PowerPoint but it didn’t go as smoothly as I would have liked. The groups were too large and rarely was everyone able to meet so a select few had to take on the bulk of the project. I suggest smaller groups and an easier assignment because it was sort of challenging to try to crack certain myths on film.
- I liked that we had to get into groups and make a video. Being in groups made it easy to interact with people in the class.
- I thought that the Mythbusters video project was a great way to connect with your classmates and have more of a hands on project. The problem I found with the project was some classmates didn’t want to do anything and it was a struggle to get everyone together due to different schedules.
- The video project was much preferable over a final paper or PowerPoint presentation. The video allowed the students to display what they knew in a fun, interactive way for other students.
- The video project was a creative way to learn course material. I would prefer a final paper because my skill set is more suited to writing papers rather than a video, but a video project is a creative way for students to learn course material as a final assignment.
- I really enjoyed this final project. It was very “outside the box” kind of creativity and really forced me to expand my knowledge of Psychology. The only problems I seemed to run into was that I pretty much took over the entire project and had to write the entire screenplay because nobody seemed to want to participate or respond to our messages.
- Overall, I thought it was a great idea. I preferred the PowerPoint. I didn’t encounter any problems with this assignment, my group was very helpful. I would suggest that we have more time in class to work on group project, because some people have trouble making time after class
- I really enjoyed this final project. It made learning the material fun and in a way I will always remember.
- I really enjoyed this project. I enjoyed working with others and making a fun video but also getting real factual information to inform my class about. I learned lots watching the videos of all the groups and also really enjoyed each of them.
- I loved the myth buster project gave me an opportunity to get out of my comfort zone. [O]nly problem was with scheduling conflicts.
- I really enjoyed the Mythbuster project. I did prefer this over a final paper, because I learned more about all of the topics than I would have with a paper, and I gained a lot of team work experience.
The majority of the class seems to approve of the Mythbusters project. As with all group projects, there were some intra-group conflicts. However, given that most careers will necessitate working within groups at some points or another, I still feel it is valuable to learn to navigate balancing schedules and delegating tasks within groups. It is a valid point that the groups could have been smaller for this project. For future semesters, I am also endeavoring to provide more time for groups to communicate in class and to provide a more detailed grading rubric.
