In class today, we discussed what academic disciplines have contributed to the skills we’ve used and will need to complete our assignments for the semester. In the case of my re-purposing essay, and my remediation process, those skills have varied. Equally important is the fact that there are missing elements that I can’t simply “sum up” or quantify. So:
What academic disciplines contribute to or inform the repurposing:
-In order to think from a variety of conflicting standpoints on my repurposing assignment, I’ve thought about the collision of academic disciplines I’ve studied as a whole – 35%
-Logical reasoning from discussion based classes like Writing – 20%
-Economics – 15%
-Sociology and Psychology together – 10%
-Gray area – 20%
What academic disciplines contribute to or inform the remediation:
-Taking all of my ideas, taking them as assumptions, and transforming them: Economics classes – 30%
-Employing creativity – Writing and English – 20%
-Using different format to appeal to difference perspectives: Sociology and Art – 15%
-Gray area – 35%
Still to learn/Gray area composition:
-How to specifically be vague. Talking only in terms of subject content and words I’ve learned in class creates boilerplate; being vague creates vagueness. I need to be able to articulate in a unique way what I can do and what my experiences are. I need to talk about forces that connect different components of my mind without talking about the actual things in my mind.
-I need to learn how to find better outlets to describe the things I want to describe: metaphors, concepts, and remediation tools.
-I need to become more comfortable with being in a mental limbo!
-I still don’t know.
