In the same vein of the Praxis Pre-Program Review, I thought I would share what I worked on over the last week for Praxis.
I officially started the Praxis bootcamp last Monday. It’s been a wild ride so far, but I’m loving it and can’t wait to keep going.
I got to work immediately on the work for week one, watching the videos and drafting my Top Three Skills post and my Five People Experiment post. In addition to these activities, I went above and beyond by writing Recap posts for Episodes 9, 29, and 36 of the Forward Tilt Podcast.
On Wednesday, my cohort (a fancy term for the group of participants who started the program in October with me) had Orientation. It was a three hour Zoom call consisting of three sessions, Kicking Ass 101, Bootcamp and Placement Overview, and then a discussion with two Praxis alumni about their experience and where they are now.
As other people in my cohort shared their work in Slack, I got to know them better and practiced constructive criticism. We share feedback on at least two other participants’ deliverables each week both to benefit them and to give us ideas to improve our own work. (This works in other areas as well, which is why I’m always eager to critique other people’s writing if I know I have time available to do so.)
It’s been a great first week and I will be working just as hard through the rest of the bootcamp as well.
