We use a performative format to chart a feeling sense about our journey working with the students who attended. The year’s institute incorporates participant’s sense about power, privilege, and gender justice via the Selfie where seeing, being seen, and seeing through, or unmasking encourages social change. The metaphor of the mask or Mas/caras helped participants develop awareness about how self fits into community and how community fits into the self.
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty staff students and anyone interested in learning about how art can be used in social justice contexts; anyone interested in learning about the social justice aspects of art.

Session Length:

Room:

Description:
Sure, your website is good. But how good is it? While some of what makes a site good (or not) is inherently subjective, there is still plenty that can be quantified. And once you've got numbers, you can put them to work in useful and interesting ways. In the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering, we've begun tracking a handful of quality metrics across the various sites in our college. Come see how we're gathering our data, what we're learning from it, and how we hope to use it. Bring your stories and questions, too, as we'll follow up with a broader conversation about what tools are available, which metrics they provide, and how they can be harnessed to improve your organization's web presence.
Goals and Target Audience:
This PDI is intended for website owners and contributors, but it will be especially relevant to those who are responsible for complex, high-profile websites or who manage multiple sites. Participants should leave with new ideas on how to measure and track site quality.
