    Ross Immersive is an immersive learning project funded by Ball State University. In this immersive learning opportunity, Ball State University's Ross Immersive Learning Team (NEWS 397) partnered with the Ross Community Center and Muncie community residents. The community residents were tasked with creating visual ethnographies and engaging the community with photography. Ross Immersive worked this semester to highlight various cultures and traditions present in Muncie through the use of modern media. ​ Ross Immersive follows a research method called "Sight Beyond My Sight" created by Dr. Gabriel Tait. This research method offers an opportunity for the residents of Thomas Park/Avondale to share their perspectives of the neighborhood through a series of photographs. Starting in January, the team lent each participant a professional-grade Canon camera for two weeks. During those two weeks, community participants were instructed to capture images that truly encompass their community, with the theme of community revitalization in mind. The participants were also instructed not to delete any of the pictures they had taken.

    Village Promenade Shark Tank Proposal Exercise
    (2022) Webster, Craig
    The immersive aspect of this semester’s class is to look at the Village Promenade Learning Lab and create an event that can use the space there for the benefit of those who are now living on the premises. This is a proposal to a real client and the winning event is intended to be run if the COVID situation permits. Satisfy the client’s needs by supplying a roadmap to success, incorporating events into the mix. There is no set number of pages or words for this proposal, as it is a creative response. The proposal should be written in ways that are understandable to those responsible at IU Medical and the Village Promenade. You should use reason and logic to guide you in terms of finding the right number of words and pages in order to make your client satisfied, showing the client clear pathways with creative concepts that are likely to help the organization to be successful and have a successful and interesting event. This includes how you envision the event space will be utilized (such as the setup on the floor) and considerations with regards to catering.
