Feeding Students’ Curious Appetites: Supporting Research with Emerging Technologies: Jon Caris
Students are attracted to burgeoning technologies such as drones, virtual reality, and rapid prototyping. Their interests are often contained in this discovery phase and lack impetus to apply these methods to their own research – not because of a lack of enthusiasm, but rather they have difficulty envisioning the roles these technologies can play in their work. As the Smith College Spatial Analysis Lab accommodates research across disciplines, we are navigating research that manifest in different forms – from traditional data-driven quantitative STEM methods to qualitative storytelling in the humanities. We are leveraging our campus, the Five College area, as well as our neighboring communities to build our intellectual sandbox.
