Hey RUE readers – as you know, we recently collaborated with the Community Research Unit at the University of Regina to host a student blogger during the Fall 2010 semester. It was a great experience and we are hoping to continue participating in their Community Service-Learning program in the future. There’s potential for us to host another student or collection of students in the spring, and instead of just getting students to write posts we thought it might be fun to give them a project to complete. That is where you come in!
We want to know what you’d like to see more of here at RUE and what topics you think deserve more attention in our city.
Should we get students to research and map public infrastructure in Regina’s neighbourhoods or in the downtown (i.e. bike racks, benches, width of sidewalks)? Conduct a reader poll on a particular topic (i.e. transit, housing, public art) and have students more closely examine the results? Identify some lesser known buildings in Regina and have students see what they can find out about them? The sky is the limit!
We want your biggest and best ideas – send us everything you’ve got. If we can’t do the project immediately, we’ll at least have it on our radar for the future.
To send us your thoughts:
