The first phase of my project has been to synthesize research related to learning spaces, educational resources, physical and virtual space, learning pedagogy, etc. It’s been a great opportunity to go back through research we’ve worked on in different classes throughout the program, and apply it to a focused project.
In keeping with the open nature of the project, the link above is to a Google Doc with the current (as of 7/20/2014) draft of the research component. Please note, anyone can view and edit this early draft. However, as I am developing this as my Integrative Masters Project – I will be primarily responsible for collecting, organizing, editing, and presenting all of this information. As such, I ask that if you make a correction, addition, change, or other contribution – that you add your name and contact info (email is fine) so that I can credit you should I choose to adopt the change in the final document (at my discretion). This is a document in process and will be changed significantly before completion. The final document will be released under a (to be determined) Creative Commons license.
Next week, I will be focused on:
- Refining my research
- Collecting data from the student survey and faculty interviews
- Developing prototype virtual resources for the program
Thanks to all of the program students that filled out the survey!
