    3. reflects on what someone else said that you found provocative and link it to what you have done or are planning to do in this seminar.

What is s/he struggling with? Exchange supportive feedback via the Comment function of the wiki page (at the bottom); please be specific about the feasibility of your partner’ s plan in particular.
