I received word last night that my application to return to Dubrovnik as a Fulbright Scholar in the spring of 2015 was approved! I’ve not been talking about it much, because I really didn’t know what the chances were of my receiving that kind of support, and I’m still a bit overwhelmed by the good news.
The tl;dr version is that I’ll be using my RIT sabbatical next spring to return to Dubrovnik and work with my colleagues at RIT Croatia to create a Game Design minor with an emphasis on games & tourism that would meet the needs of both Rochester students who want to study abroad and Croatian students in our degree programs there.
If you want the longer version, here’s the project narrative from my application (PDF).
So, this blog will now shift from a historical record of my trip in 2013 to an ongoing chronicle of my planning for the 2015 trip, and reporting of my experiences while I’m there! w00t!
