Bye Bye Blog

This blog served as the online repository for my grad school experience. I continued this blog throughout my first year of teaching, periodically contributing, as I tried to determine it's new role.

The format no longer suits my needs, so the door will close for new posts. You can find me collecting statements, images and curiosities on my tumblr: mml likes

Upcoming Conference

In early July, a paper I co-wrote will be presented at Design & Complexity, a conference hosted by the Design Research Society.

The paper, Interactive Tools and Online Communities that Support Media Literacy, will be presented by Assistant Professor Gretchen Rinnert who was the co-author.

I know this is going to be a great conference. Hopefully, there will be some twitter, or other web, updates throughout the conference.

The paper will be published and I will post that information as soon as I have it.

"design research" explained...

I found a blog post today by Louise Sandhaus at CalArts where she attempts to define, or explain, the new buzzword "design research". While her description is rather specific to CalArts (making comes first in their thesis process), I found the post helpful. As an educator, I often wonder how other educators use the term design research in the classroom. I also wonder how current undergraduates and graduates understand the term.

"What is design research and what does it mean to design practitioners?"

Very excited and honored to be featured in the MacArthur Foundation's Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning. They got our titles wrong, but I hope that will be fixed soon.

Here is the feature:
