Patricia Kovic: 2013-14 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

USING A BOOK SELF-PUBLISHING TO GROW IDEAS + IDENTIFY PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

I designed a book about the fall 2013 Neighbor-Gap-Bridge semester and used it as a platform to:

  1. Better understand my thinking
  2. Begin to identify new professional opportunities
  3. Generate content for these new professional activities

The following new professional activities resulted from this grant activity:

  1. Bard College Conservatory consultant. Developing new audience/ community + donor engagement experiences
  2. Neighbor-Gap-Bridge white paper published by Industrial Designers Society of America for 2014 IDSA Educational Symposium
  3. Neighbor-Gap-Bridge consulted with a music based, social design start-up — “Sounds of Social Change”: spring 2014
  4. Neighbor-Gap-Bridge white paper submitted to The 2014 AICAD Symposium

Thank you!
