preparatory thoughts for my session tomorrow

With regard to Design in the context of Electronic Media programs

I am the director of an interdisciplinary Digital Media Studies Program. Curriculum development is constant and ongoing.

1.- My sense of self-worth is deeply tied to my making things, either by myself or with others.

2.- What is the radius or range for my interdisciplinarity?

3.- Can I play well with others?

4.- Can I understand my field deeply? historically? with vision?

5.- Can I understand someone else's field deeply? and how that field productively interfaces with mine?

6.- How can I subsume the voice I worked so hard to develop?

7.- Am I frightened or comforted by apparent schizophrenia?

8.- How do I feel if I create situations? If I create systems? If I create relationships?
