Dr. Reed reflection

I found this week’s focus on community planning to be particularly useful in forming a realistic perspective of what we should expect on the ground in Dhaka. As we begin to finalize our prototype, it’s becoming increasingly important that we focus on an implementation strategy that will be sustainable over the long term and will provide maximal the potential benefit to local residents. A lot of that has to do with recognizing our facts, assumptions, challenges, and expectations, as Dr. Reed emphasized, and folding these aspects into the overall design and implementation strategy of our product. Also, her talk was very useful on a personal level to help me better understand my motivations for working on the project, while opening my eyes to new challenges that we’ll face collectively down the line.
