This paper explores faculty and student reflections on their experiences navigating the different learning spaces while participating in the Student Wiki Interdisciplinary Group, a technology-based collaboration project at Queensborough Community College. A survey of the participant's opinions on their technology readiness and preparation, their comfort with different learning spaces, and their movement across the spaces was administered online to gather data. The analysis of the reflections reveals that while most participants felt sufficiently prepared and supported, streamlining and ensuring consistent access to technology platforms would facilitate movement across the different spaces.
