Group: Salome Asega, Ritika Bhagya, Mirte Becker, Justin Charles, Gustavo Faria, Viki Hristova, Mennie Shen
Objective: With so many scattered methods of communication for DT (listserv, Facebook groups, bulletin boards, etc) it becomes more difficult for us to communicate as a group. This program being as large as it is, it’s hard to really feel like a group a lot of the time. 1st years and 2nd years don’t know each other at all. There are even 2nd years that don’t know each other. Social interaction needs to be better facilitated. We have very little idea what people outside our own studios are working on. Bootcamp does an excellent job socializing first years but leaves students to fend for themselves afterward. What if there was a way to continue that experience?
Roles: Floating weekly facilitators of administrative tasks (Meeting planning, note-taking, etc), Two Rotating Facilitators for each prototype
Meetings: every Friday at 3pm, initiating our weekly prototypes.
Deliverables: Documentation of prototypes in appropriate media
