Collaboration plays a large role in this year’s MAET cohort. We rated ourselves on technology skills on a scale from 1-5 and were asked to divide into groups based off of similar ratings. Our groups would be the collaborative circles in which we would create many of our large scale projects for the semester. 4Tech formed through this process and as luck would have it consisted of a familiar group of ladies that I had pleasure of working with in the East Lansing cohort the previous year. Alexis Miller, Renee Jorae, Kate McCallum and myself created the group 4Tech as there are four of us focused on technology. We are excited to work and learn together!
