Tech and Narrative Lab Residency
Elective Course (Required for the Technology Applications and Implications stream)
A combination of individual and small group projects in the Tech + Narrative Lab (TNL) explore a variety of topics, some rotating each quarter, others having a longer trajectory.
The residency includes a documentation aspect in which both the results from the projects, as well as the processes — acquisition of skills/capabilities, problem framing, experimental methods, and preliminary results — are collected, collated, published, and shared with broader RAND (and possibly public) audiences. The focus will be on documentation such as video narratives, animation, and modeling such that students become conversant in a variety of mediums beyond the traditional academic paper or report.
Residency periods do not need to be continuous and can be adapted based on project needs and other factors.
