Below, Ruth Gregory describes her experience teaching the Discovery Core III course and shares some of her students work.
This spring I taught a Discover Core III course focused on the Digital Humanities called Reality Bytes: Introduction to Digital Humanities. I figured that the two would work well together since DCIII courses are all about students reflecting on their first year and there is a strong sense of reflection embedded in the practice of Digital Humanities.
I just finished updating the class website and wanted to share it with everyone. The reason is that (aside from their work being generally awesome) they "remixed" work from their first year in their Scratch project assignment. This means that you can see new interpretations of work some of the students did in your classes now in short games and animation form! (Scratch is a free software intended to get children interested in computer programming and it also works great with college students who are technophobic. One of the goals of the class was to get students who might not otherwise think about becoming CSS, Interactive Media, and/or Media and Communications majors more comfortable with using technology and to realize that they have programming/media production talent.)
You can access the whole site here:
The Scratch Remixes are here:
Some of the class favorites included:
Danny N. – A remix of his video project from Art & Performance: Video, Place, & Technology with Randy Courtmach & Carrie Bodle: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/3304958/
Stephanie G. – A commercial for the product “Battle Balloons” that her group created in the Interactive Media & Entrepreneurship class with Laura Schildkraut & Wanda
Anthony G. – A remix of his Star Wars Paper from Research Writing with Justine Barda: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/3311002/
Nicole L. – A game based off an assigned reading about DJing in the 1980s from Universal Magnetic: Globalization & the Aesthetics of Hip Hop with Georgia Roberts & Michael Berry: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/3308098/

Student coordinator, Tahira Naqvi (UWB Asia Study Tour 2013), and her group is working on raising money to donate to charities in Thailand and Cambodia. One of the charities is ABC’s and Rice, a school in Cambodia: http://abcsandrice.webs.com. Professor James Reinnoldt has worked with these charities in the past with MBA students.
Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world where education comes at a cost and is often unattainable to the impoverished in the region. The opportunity to help children as young as 4 years old to have a set of books and supplies would cost as low as $5.00. We believe every child has the right to education. Please donate your used books and/or cash to contribute to this cause.
Please bring your donations to the CUSP office in UW1 - 080 before August 1st.
It is amazing how much a little can do to make such a big difference. Be a part of the difference!

B CUSP 188 Section A, a gateway to Chinese studies, wrapped up the spring quarter with a cultural feast. Four students, Nimco Khalif, Khalida Sharif, Ifrah Mohammed, and Kim Yuhui, videotaped their trip to Teavana at the Alderwood Mall and contrasted Chinese Oolong and Somalian Tea in their presentation. Their exuberance for something exotic seemed contagious.
Other students became connoisseurs on Milk Tea (Zhihao Li, Hongyi Ding, Jiali Zhong, Huyi Qing, Yohei Kato), Rice Dumplings (Ben Li, Xiangyu Qi, Tianjia Wnag, Pengfei Zhu), Rice Culture (Mason Liao, Andrew Chuang, Kim Zhou, Lacy Liu), Chinese New Year (Xuran Zhang, Weiyi Liu, Yeming Zhou, Sheng Meng, Tai Yong Moon), Mochi (Mengkhy Lay, Renqing Li, Nur Abd Rahim), Chinese Sports and Recreations (Jiya Sharma, Henry Deng, Wang Frank, Jake Lee), Tangyuan, dumplings made from glutinous rice flour, symbolic of family reunion, (Sol Youn, Mayra Lomeli, Hong Li, Helena Widjaja), Chinese Calligraphy (Linwei Yang, Xiaojun Chen, Junmin Li, Victor Jeng, Hao Sun, Peiru Shao), and Silkworms (William Dimmick, Blaine Chapman, Lance Fernandez, Rachel Gunselman, Serena Carrasquillo, Timothy Tzeo).
Rachel Gunselman showed the whole class some silkworms she has been raising by feeding them mulberry leaves. On class website, Steven Birnbaum talked about the famous Ping-Pong Diplomacy. Since the Korean War (1950 -1953), the Sino-American relationship had been constrained due to ideological differences.
In 1971, Premier Zhou Enlai invited the U.S. Table Tennis Team from Nagoya, Japan, at the end of the 31st World Table Tennis Championships. Thus the “little ball” initiated the spinning of the “big ball”. Steven concluded that historically, “Ping-Pong Diplomacy [乒乓外交 Pīngpāng wàijiāo] was one of the most successful examples of the indirect method” that paved the way for the normalization of the Sino-American relationship. In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon signed the Shanghai Communiqué at Jinjiang Hotel.

On the evening of June 2nd, the Global Learning & Science and Technology groups co-sponsored a community dinner at the Husky Village Community Center. This event also marked a soft launch of the UW Bothell Multilingual Cookbook. Approaching the center, one’s taste bud would be awakened by the aroma even if one was not particularly hungry. Three RAs, Amita Sharma, Mikel Walker and Charles Zhipeng Zeng, made delicious (beef) tacos together. Other contributions came from Jackie Do (fried rice); Rachel Visario (eggrolls); Cruz Garibay (guacamole); Hayden Jones (cranberry juice).
All the contributors took home a small bookstore gift card. During the lively conversation, Rachel showed her cookbook, her high school project, to James Anderson, a sophomore as well as a sous-chef, the second-in-command at Lynn's Bistro, a French restaurant in Kirkland. James offered two sample recipes online to help standardize the cookbook. He also plans to offer some cooking lessons in the near future.
For more information on this project, please visit https://catalyst.uw.edu/gopost/board/weigao/31918/.
Recipes submitted by June 21st will be handpicked as samples to be published online.
