Nervousness about working collaboratively with a group of strangers, some less available than others, and aware of the failure to contribute of 4/8 in such an Exercise in H807 I decided that I’d try something different and emailed everyone.
A few hours later 4 out of the group have got in touch and sound relieved that I’ve helped break the ice.
The next step is to be a contributor, circumspect, professional and academic. Having read and taken notes on three of the reports I feel I’ve made a good start. I need to put as much thought into each of the other reports and relate what others think worthy of note.
THE LESSON I HAVE LEARNT:
Often people are waiting around for others to take the initiative, even to post the first entry. Perhaps I should liken this to being the first onto the dance floor at a Rugby Club Disco in my teens. Once someone makes a start, others join in.
