John Pattison’s Interactive Qualifying Project at WPI
Living History of WPI
Completed during Spring 2001 semester
The objective of this work is to create a unique first-person history of Worcester Polytechnic Institute by interviewing individuals who played key roles in the university’s recent history. These interviews were videotaped, thematically organized, and compiled into documentary form using nonlinear computer editing. Thematic emphasis is placed on the evolution of the WPI social community. The conclusions and recommendations focus on changes in student / faculty interaction, and the emphasis on research and tenure over the best interests of students.
