UMD NOW — What’s next?

by on May 2, 2011


As part of the next step toward implementing and growing our project, we had to think about what we want to do, now and in the long run. We came up with five things:

What’s next? Where do we want to go?

1.    Establish regular blogging schedule to address campus/national feminist issues

2.    Use blog/site to establish communication with other campus feminist and social justice groups

3.    Communication/clearinghouse for feminist and related organizations and events

4.    Invite other groups/student leaders/faculty/

5.    Establish NOW-type student organization

Conference Feedback

Cards with suggestions/feedback from conference.

From there, we needed to identify specific feedback we received during our presentation at  Theorizing the Web Conference conference (4/9/2011). After we identified four items, we used the goal-action-word cards to brainstorm how we can follow-up o

n or implement suggestions and ideas from the feedback we received.

1.    Look into Third Wave Foundation
