In modeling the learning experience, we found that Dirksen’s Flow of Goals most effectively facilitated us through the learning steps. For the freshman year, we aim to help students understand sustainability, and apply some of the learning in their daily lives on campus. After freshman year, we envisioned that students would be able to apply this learning to more contexts, eventually building up cooking skills, and make more impacts.
After brainstorming, rearranging, and assessing our ideas, the final concept that we presented in speed dating session was based on the following 4 ideas.
To validate our concepts, we created a storyboard with a few variations to include our key concepts. Then, we presented our concepts in a digital speed dating format with our classmates, using the storyboard as a tool to drive discussions about the features of our idea. In the storyboard, we thought through the scenarios of freshmen's experience from orientation week to the end of the semester, and aligned our understanding for the service as a team.
