High-Impact Programmatic Uses of Domains at Georgetown University
When an academic program adopts the use of Domains, it is typically in the service of creating open portfolio’s of the students’ work, an identified high-impact practice (Kuh 2008). At Georgetown University, we are seeing a number of more creative uses of Domains on a programmatic level, leading to the creation of open resources, collaborative reflection spaces, and living documentation of a program and their students, reflecting other high-impact practices identified by Kuh. This presentation will outline a small number of examples, as well as detail how we logistically support these programmatic initiatives, as they relate to Kuh’s high-impact practices. We will first describe how the Learning, Design, and Technology Masters has incorporated digital identity and project-based learning into the program using Domains. We will also explore the ways that the Public Relations and Corporate Communications Masters using Domains for real-world impact, as well as community building without the program. Finally, the Computer Science program uses Domains for community outreach through the Girls Who Code initiative.
