A brainstorm about priorities for the winter term 2016:

Review of current work

  • YouTube review: Students Talk Playlist
  • streeter style interviews from a range of students (not just student leaders). Broad range of perspectives likely most appealing to our audience.
  • looking at options for new video series: Lifehacks; rate my prof (prof's reading reviews and speaking to the content?)
  • Screencasts on common issues faced by the desk team (booking rooms, etc.)

New ideas

  • involve web team
  • adding elements of humor/entertainment to video resources (new playlists for LifeHacks or Profs Reading Ratings)
  • collaborate with AMS - open resources campaign (#textbook broke) - collaborate through social media (Twitter, etc)
  • have some fun campaign - how might we collaborate?
  • can we use the pair strategy for interviews? students accessing academic support services.
  • need good questions: What makes a good prof? Highest viewed video asked the question: what's the hardest course you've taken and what did you learn?
  • what have you learned from failure? can we do this with profs.?
