Short blog post, due Wednesday, 3/27: Watch Vernelle Noel’s TEDx talk and a short excerpt from the recent Georgia Tech diversity/identity/inclusion panel (01:10:00 to 01:22:00) in which she was a participant. You can also take a quick look at her web site. Prepare 1-3 questions for her guest speaker session on Wednesday, and order them in highest priority. We won’t get to all your questions, but we will send her all of your questions.
Blog post, due Monday 4/1:
Discuss your current thoughts on continuing your midterm project. Will you continue to develop it for the final? If not, what might you work on for the final project?
Based on your current project thinking, discuss where and how you might find potential people to test your project and provide feedback. Discuss where/who you will find
People with the salient social identity of your audience (e.g. those who are vision-impaired, elderly, hearing-impaired, low-income, experiencing mental health issues, experiencing posture issues etc.) Where might you find people with the salient social identity that ALSO have pertinent personal identities (e.g. low-income music students, disabled cooks, hearing-impaired finance students, etc)?
A professional who is an expert practitioner with your project’s technical, socioeconomic and/or scientific challenges?
