Over the course of my University degree, I have been exposed to the world of Peer-Review as a means of developing our skills in the analysis of others and our own work. This year we’ve been tasked with Peer-Reviewing fellow students in our #BCM325 Cohort’s Digital Artifact Pitches.
Throughout the peer-review process, it can provide us with valuable information about other students’ DAs and areas of interest like Graphic Design, Sports, and Science-Fiction as we conduct our own research into the concepts to be able to build a constructive and valuable piece of feedback for the recipient.
Peer-reviewing has provided me with some crucial insight into my own Digital Artifact work, as I analyze the excellence of my peers. Two crucial points for my Digital Artifact include being conservative surrounding my workload to help maintain interest in the topic, and not overburden myself with additional study and content creation. Secondly, the consequences of poor coherence and structure within our work can limit its overall effectiveness in communicating our message which is a vital component for informing people today about the potential risks of the future!
