I. Establish a form of 'open' dialogue through interpersonal communication with the students (in class). Student Input is encouraged in their formulating a direction. The way I see it, inspiration is a lost art for most educators and students. I am proposing the following items for consideration: Creativity, Conceptual, and Content (over context).
- Creativity - based on a 'theme' means effective problem solving, knowing what is at your disposal, could be a consideration of the crisis at hand (ie "an ability to put out fires").
- Conceptual - are the ideas and inspirations that form out of creativity (ie "a direction", "plot").
- Content over Context - stresses that what we choose to say, our direction, our premise, our argument, is more important that how we say it through the visual means at our disposal.
- Stage 1: Proposal stage (new work item proposal - 'your plot', your direction)
- Stage 2: Preparatory stage (develop/submit a working draft using the storyboard/needs?)
- Stage 3: Committee stage (a critique of your proposal by your classmates)
- Stage 4: Enquiry stage (a more refined 'draft' or preliminary finalization of your work)
- Stage 5: Approval stage (a second critique of your work)
- Stage 6: Publication stage (submitting work online / may require some 'tweaking')
