DIY Media Learning Community
The DIY Media Learning Community is a collection of UBC people (designers, media specialists, instructors, students, and other DIYers) who want to help others create DIY media. Do it yourself (DIY) is a term that describes a method of creating, modifying, or repairing something without the aid of experts or professionals.
DIY Media Resource Site
The DIY Media Learning Community supports the DIY Media resource site. The resources on the site will change, evolve and get streamlined as we develop and iterate together. Contributors to the content on this site are DIYers: students, staff and faculty. We create things on the UBC Wiki and publish them there when we have something to share.
Resource Development Process
The development of DIY Media related resources is an iterative process. The community is guided by these principles:
- Collaborate: to identify what’s needed.
- Curate: So that we don’t waste time creating resources that exist elsewhere.
- Ideate: to create resources when necessary to meet the needs of our faculty.
- Try something: like this collaborative website development as an example.
- Learn from users: we are working on a process for this.
- Re-iterate: to improve what we have and define new needs.
You can get involved by:
- contributing content by authoring or editing DIY resources on the UBC Wiki and adding the Category: DIY Media to your page.
- offering your expertise in the form of facilitating a workshop or learning session.
