What:  Spring 2014 Fellows Immersive Learning Showcase

When:  April 28, 2014 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm

Where:  Ball State University, Student Center Ballroom

You are invited!  This Monday, April 28, Building Better Communities will host the Spring 2014 Fellows Immersive Learning Showcase.  This is an opportunity for the student teams and faculty mentors to present outcomes of the Building Better Communities Fellows and Emerging Media Fellows projects with which they have been involved over the past semester.  Each student team has worked diligently to address a challenge for a business, municipality or nonprofit organization within Indiana.  There will be 17 exhibits, with student representatives available to answer questions and to provide a detailed overview of how the project evolved from problem to resolution. 

  

Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the Showcase, to see the work of their peers, and to find out more about getting involved in future Fellows projects.  Building Better Communities is proud to offer the Fellows program, which is funded in part by the Lilly Endowment.  Project support for Emerging Media projects is provided by Ball State’s Digital Corps and Emerging Technologies unit.  For more information, call the Building Better Communities office at 765-285-2773.  Light refreshments will be provided.
