What organization did you work for and what was your role?
I’m working as a Marketing Intern for AltumView System, a technology start-up company in Vancouver.
Why did you choose a video as a medium to express your learning outcomes?
As a student concentrating in marketing, I also have a passion and interest in content creation and video editing. I feel comfortable being in front of the camera and want to show how my day is as a business co-op student in the most lively way. I also work as a Beedie Content Creator, where I also created a video introducing my day as a co-op student. Therefore, this process is easier and more convenient for me.
How was developing a video useful for your reflection and learning (or not)?
Recording myself working in a day is the most realistic content for reflection. Looking back at it, I not only can tell what I used to do as a marketing intern, but also how much I enjoyed doing those marketing tasks, how I dealt with them, how productive I was in my first Co-op term, and whether I will be able to spend less than a day to finish those same tasks in my second work term or not. For me, there are much more things I can learn through a video than a written report.
