      Great idea for getting students involved in promoting library services and resources. I'll be interested to see what kinds of capstone projects come out of this. It might give us all some new ideas.

    Excellent short Prezi with 3 specific group activity examples that look at creativity, teaching failures, and cross-disciplinary research.  Each activity asks great questions of the group and individuals.  Invention Mobs: recreating creativity and collaboration in the writing classroom -- Leeann Hunter, Georgia Tech -- Roger Whitson, Emory from 2012 Computers and Writing Conference at North Carolina State University ACT 1: Playing with Others Select 2 objects in this room, on your person, or in your bag.  (60 seconds) Form groups and nominate 3 objects that don't belong together (90 seconds) Create a 4-line narrative that presents the objects to a specific audience (120 seconds) Q: How do we define creativity and why is it important?  Q: How do we define mobs and why is collaboration necessary?  ACT 2: Teaching with Others In groups of three, share a failed teaching experiment.
