UW Madison’s 3rd Annual Digital Salon showcased a video created by seven of our Fall 2011 students.
About Our Video Project
Within our patient advocacy curriculum, students are introduced to the idea of Significant Learning (Fink, 2003), and as such, are provided various opportunities for reflection. One such opportunity is our Significant Learning Experience Video project. Essentially, students are invited to video-record a significant (or powerful) learning experience they have had since beginning to advocate for patients at the Center for Patient Partnerships. After students create the videos they are compiled into one Significant Learning video for the semester. We then come together to view, discuss and celebrate ourselves as a community of learners and moments of learning that have been particularly powerful in our lives.
About UW Madison’s 3rd Annual Digital Salon
UW-Madison’s Digital Salon brings together students, faculty, and staff to showcase artistic and research-based projects that take digital form or rely heavily on IT in the production process. The heart of the Digital Salon is a one-week exhibition of new media work by UW graduate and undergraduate students. In 2012, the exhibition was held in College Library’s Open Book Café April 15-April 20, 2012. The Digital Salon is organized by the Digital Humanities Initiative and the UW-Madison Libraries, with additional support from DoIT Academic Technology. More information about the Digital Salon can be found on the Digital Salon web page.
