We’ve set up this page as a forum for the March 28 grantee workshop. Our goal is to generate some discussion and input from you in order to shape the workshop activities and schedule.
In a previous email, Patrick suggested several questions for you to think about ahead of time regarding the status of your project:
- Where does the project presently stand?
- What are the objectives of the project, and how far along am I in reaching these objectives?
- Do I need to consult with Mo Pelzel and/or Brett Boessen in order to get some help with the project? Please describe any assistance needed.
- Are there capital items that I need to purchase/request, in order to complete the project?
- What is the revised timeline for my project?
- Where can I go from here? How can I build on this project to expand and deepen my understanding of digital pedagogy?
Please use these questions as a prompt to update us about the status of your project and to consider what we can do at the workshop that would be most helpful for you and for the group. We ask that you post a response of a paragraph or two in the comment box below.
You will also see that each grantee has a page underneath the “Mellon Grantees” tab in the navigation menu above this page. Just mouse over that tab or click on it to access the list of pages. We’ve set these up as an ongoing place on the website where you can document and disseminate what’s going on with your project. Your initial proposal is at the top of your page–you can continue to add new material underneath that, and/or create subpages under your main page to hold additional materials. Please consider looking at what your colleagues are doing, think about how the projects are connected around common themes of pedagogy, and comment on one another’s pages.
At the workshop, we will demonstrate how to edit your page, create subpages, and make and edit blog posts. However, if you’d like to be able to do that ahead of the workshop, just let me know at email@example.com. I will get you your username and password, and give any help as needed. But, if you’d rather not mess with that just yet, you can send me things to post or to add to your page, and I’ll be happy to do so.
Thanks for your work on the projects and contribution to the group. We look forward to continuing our conversation here and at the workshop.
