I am currently in pre-production on a project entitled, Campus Reboot, a crowd-sourced, interactive and collaborative web-based documentary research project. This will be a living document of the historical times of college during the Covid19 pandemic and it’s aftermath.
This could be a very useful and important project, especially if we need to go online sometime during the semester.
There are many ways for instructors to be involved with this project:
- Simply share the bi-monthly prompt link and have students create videos(either cellphone video blogs or micro-documentary projects)
- Make this a part of your course work.You and I can work together to ensure that your course objectives are met within the video projects
- You can become more acutely involve with the project as a research partner
Students can also post written work on our Facebook page or via email and photos that will be put onto our Instagram. We want to make this very MULTImedia.
If you are in a different country and your school year does not match up, just let me know this and we will work around your schedule with your prompts.
We will continue this project until the pandemic is over, which will, at the least be the Fall and Spring semesters(for the US this would be September-May).
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I have gotten so many great responses with this and I am excited to see it unfold.
Please respond at your earliest convenience with your interest. I am open to suggestions and alternate means of working with you so please do not hesitate to ask.
Also, if you have any colleagues in other schools that you think might be interested please pass this email and my contact information along to them as well.
