You may have noticed a few questions and call-outs coming from our twitter account, @Stanforddschool, featuring the hashtag #futureuniversity. In case you're wondering, this is all part and parcel of the work being done by the @Stanford Project here at the d.school. The goal of the project is to re-imagine the campus experience for Stanford students in the year 2020.
We've received quite a bit of feedback from folks, and we wanted to collect as much of it as we could. We've listed the questions we've sent out below if you want to skip around, and please keep the conversation going on Twitter with the hashtag #futureuniversity and here in the comments. This is the first time the @Stanford project has experimented with using tweets to engage the broader community, said @Stanford Project team member Kelly Schmutte on Tuesday.
"We recognize there's the potential for really great ideas to come from people within the broader Stanford community and beyond," she said. "We want to hear those perspectives too."
