This week we spent time listening to others mostly. We would sit down and listen to the people presenting. I feel like the presenters them self were forgettable, I also feel like their presentations itself were kind of forgetful not in the sense that they were bad. But as in I knew most of the things, they did give a lot of information that was new to me. I enjoyed that aspect but I just disliked sitting there and them going over information I knew already, just to wait for them to say something that is actually useful or new to me.
So I would not say it was bad or a waste of time, but I just feel like I could have gotten the information a lot quicker. I understand for those in the class that do not know it was probably useful. But for me I found it tiresome and could have been condensed. However like I said I did find use from these. Such as the part where we looked at slices of the brain and how each part is laid out. I thought it was super interesting to see that some parts of the brain might be able to be seen for 20 slices while others seen for 40. I never thought to look at something in that way as far as in sections or “pieces” instead of as a whole.
Overall the week was good I got some good information to help me, however like I said I do feel like most of the presentations given to us could have been compressed into maybe one whole day but obviously the world does not revolve around me. Nonetheless I hope that the class as a whole enjoyed it and was able to take somethings away.
