  • Proposal Rubric:
    What will you measure
    How will you measure it
    Tools/resources needed
    Impact (HPA, local, global)

    What you used/need?
    Why is it credible or needed?
    How are you going to use it/was it used?

    May-August: meet with mentor in person and/or email, discuss and develop abstract proposal
    September: choose project team and review team (one from outside the field)

    Daily/each class: weblog entry: what you did, what worked, what did not, why, next steps
    Weekly: weekly summary report: what worked, what did not, what you plan next week, what will you need
    Quarterly: quarter summary weblog entry, quarter video (2-3 minute summary of progress)
    Semester: group presentations

    Due dates:
    September: proposal abstract due
    Q1 final: video and Q1 summary due, wiki complete
    Q2 final: video and semester summary due
    S1 final: meet with mentor, meet with review team, present to small group on campus
    Q3 final: video and Q3 summary due
    Q4 final: year summary video due, year summary due online
    Year final: meet with mentor, meet with review team, present to larger formal group

    Presentation: 5-10 minutes
    White paper summary (1-2 pages max)

    Semester presentations:
    Presentation Guidelines:
    There should be some sort of product (aria performed in GPAC; Spanish lesson taught - edited video if panel is unable to observe; white paper detailing outcomes of three labs conducted; draft of short story; financial markets app demo)

    Formal Presentation of one's learning to panel and authentic audience <10 minutes (this could take the form of the performer's introduction prior to performance or a student-teacher's introduction to a panel and class before teaching the class)

    Accompanying one-page White Paper summarizing process and learning (and next steps if applicable)
