d.school Pop-Out Proposal | Winter 2018

We will continue to explore the importance of context in experiential learning by pushing our students and teaching teams out in the wild. These "Pop-Out" experiences should be taught in-context and apply design thinking methods in the real world. The teaching team will decide on the most appropriate location and make logistical arrangements. All Pop-Out instructors will need to attend a synthesis session to reflect on their experience.

To be considered, Pop-Outs need to:
- be team-taught by people from different disciplines
- be team-based and project-based and projects must use design thinking methods
- admit students from multiple departments and involve interdisciplinary collaboration within student teams

If you would like to send any additional materials (curriculum, mindmaps, etc.) that this form does not cover, please email them to mark@dschool.stanford.edu. The deadline for fall 2017 proposals is Friday May 26, 11:59pm.

FAQs:
+Are Pop-Outs limited to weekends only?
       Nope! The teaching team will choose the dates and length of the pop-out. Keep in mind: students don't receive credit for Pop-Outs which can negatively affect participation in longer running workshops.

+Who manages the application process?
      We've got you covered. The Teaching & Learning team will manage student applications through the d.school website.

+Who is eligible to take Pop-Outs?
     While not required, Pop-Outs may be a unique opportunity for our students to collaborate and design WITH members of the community and industry professionals. We DO require that at least 50% of Pop-Out participants are students currently enrolled at Stanford.

+Is there a budget for my Pop-Out?
     We can provide a small budget per Pop-Out for additional workshop materials & expenses. Stanford doesn't allow this budget to cover teaching team travel expenses or honorariums for guest speakers. 

+Who handles space arrangements?
    Teaching teams will manage space and logistical arrangements for their Pop-Out.

+Do Pop-Outs have to stay within the Stanford/Palo Alto area?
     Nope! And please keep in mind the necessary transportation and logistical requirements and overall safety of our students from start to finish.

+Can we host our Pop-Out at the d.school if we want?
   If you love something, set it free. We love hanging out with our students and teaching teams, but we are excited for them to experience design thinking methods outside of the d.school.

Are you applying for an Equity and Engagement Grant? *
If you could use extra resources as a way to incorporate equity, engagement or inclusion into your course, we are offering grants to support the development and execution of your class. You might choose to use this money for things such as transporting students to a project partner that would be otherwise inaccessible, or to run a prototype at a level of resolution that would be unheard of without extra money, or to incorporate artifacts, people, or learning experiences into your courses that will help you in pursuit of the Equity and Engagement theme, or… you tell us. Apply for a grant using this form: https://goo.gl/forms/C4LO4bVIwpN4UwHn2
Please note the users your students will engage and how those interactions will be structured.
Please identify the potential risks and benefits for specific user groups your students will be interacting with
We will provide a small budget of about $250 for additional expenses. This cannot cover travel expenses of teaching teams or honorariums for guests to your class. For a guide to class budgets, please visit: https://dschool.stanford.edu/groups/dhandbook/wiki/3b987/Guide_to_Finance__Classes.html
