#IDSP15 Info Session 9/23/14

Tuesday, September 23, 12:15 – 1:30pm Information Session
Held upstairs in the Digital Learning Commons, 001 McGowan Building, the kick-off informational session attracted a great group of seven current MIIS graduate students from a variety of programs interested in IDSP15 as an opportunity to learn and apply new skills and tools for reflection, design, and digital media.

Notes from Information Session:
In addition, we understand that as a pilot project there are still some loose ends that we hope to further discuss and negotiate with participating fellows or those of you who are not sure how to get involved. From our notes, some of these issues include:

1. collaborative projects – working with more than one person or a small team
2. Retrospective stories – for those who have already been on a J-term project, the feasibility of working with experiential learning data collected from previous immersive program
3. work on existing project – consideration for those who have other projects in mind outside the scope of MIIS immersive learning programs as we’ve initially framed for #IDSP15
4. 1-unit course – the logistics and protocol for drafting a directed study proposal to gain credit for the IDSP15 project
5. tying into existing course – the possibility of being involved in the project in a different capacity; e.g. as a program designer or evaluator
6. 1 digital storyteller per J-Term team – looking ahead at the possibility of selecting a digital storyteller to return to lead storytelling efforts
7. format/presentation – flexibility of story deliverables (structure, tools etc…)
8. hybrid format (if not on-campus in spring 2015) – opportunity for pilot cohort to work together flexibly and remotely for those who will not be in Monterey in the Spring
