Project Kick-Off … Aaaaand we’re off!

I am pleased to announce the kick-off of the first service-learning project facilitated by Designers for Learning! Please see the full announcement on the collaborative design space for the project. While we had hoped to have sufficient interest to secure 12 student volunteers on three project teams, the Call for Volunteers resulted a much larger pool of volunteer applications than we expected. Given the that each student volunteer is sponsored and advised by a college faculty member, we expanded the project to include five project teams. In all, 19 college faculty members have sponsored 23 college students from 15 different instructional design programs. Please see the Project Team roster of over 50 project participants, including the client team members, student volunteers and their faculty sponsors / advisors, as well as other volunteer subject-matter experts and advisors. Thank you to everyone who has supported the development of this project, including those volunteering their time, skills, and knowledge to this important need!
