Description

They say it's not where you are going, but how you get there that matters. Students often assume the reverse stance—focusing on the product without appreciating the process. This session will explore ways that faculty can, even within technologically complex, collaborative and creative courses, excite students about individual contributions and evolutions along the path to completing these products. Using successful task-conscious, experiential approaches in Communication Arts courses as a basis for discussion, the session will search for other techniques that could help students get the "big picture" while they integrate, synthesize, and build skills across projects, courses and disciplines.
