Greyhouse - Wednesday at 11:30

Hi all,

This is our final meet time - come with a one page (one object?) overview of your paper as a way to tell us what you did and what you got out of it. Remember, it doesn't need to say everything - it just needs to set up the conversation.

Everyone will have about 8 minutes to give us an overview and time to ask questions. This will be relatively informal. I will put some examples on blackboard - but don't feel constrained to these. The goal is to communicate what you've been doing and to "intrigue" us to ask questions to find out more.

Oh - and I'll buy the coffees / cocoas / teas and stuff to nibble :)

Don't forget to do course evaluations - and you can use the Blog to share it with the group. If you'd rather not be "open" about it - then at least do it for yourself as a placeholder of what you took away from the experience. I fully anticipate there is room for improvement and have very much enjoyed doing this class with you all.

Here are some of my takeaways from the class:
- The different methods for collecting and analyzing qualitative data (e.g., think-alouds)
- Different frameworks for what design is / designers do
- I thought the in-class design activities were helpful (e.g., observing the re-design of the Nwn. & Sta. Intersection)
- I liked the synthesis papers by Jonassen and by Crismond
- Papers I didn't like were the ones by Greeno and by Matthews
- Beth is good at soccer and Meagan is good at shooting things
- Houses in Greece are a lot sturdier than ours
