One of our first exercises focused on creating a shared definition of the title of this course. The words “data”, “storytelling” and “studio” are all kind of nebulous! In order to figure out what we all think they mean, we created sticky notes about what each of those words meant to us. After clustering them, we ended up with a better shared sense of the course’s title.
Data: presentation, quantitative, processing, objectivity, materials, science, context
Storytelling: audience, empathy, relate-ability, facts/connections, purpose
Studio: creativity, groups work on projects, open space
I was pleased to see that these matched my own expectations and plans fairly well!
