So I presented a prototype of my mapping project yesterday at Publishing Makerspace, a project supported by the Scholarly Communications Institute and housed here in FHI. Using “backcasting,” a technique much like Grant Wiggins’s “backward design,” after I presented, participants were invited to brainstorm about potential final outcomes for the project. Then, we worked backwards from final goal to intermediary steps. If you zoom in to the images, you’ll find some sample recommendations. They were split into five categories: “Publishing Format,” “New Uses of Data,” “Data Collection,” Outcomes–Pedagogical,” and ever-popular “other.” But what great recommendations! I thought was a great approach to the genre of the works-in-progress presentation.
