The Milwaukee Digital Media Conference is a unique hands-on collaborative conference. This year's conference is being held at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Participants are busy working all week on creating collaborative projects about an art piece at the museum as well as interviewing staff behind-the-scenes on what it's like to work at the museum. You can follow the projects they are putting together on our project wiki at http://mdmc2011projects.wikispaces.com

As an addition to this year's conference, instructors will be presenting short "Mind Matters" sessions covering the 6 attributes for right-brain thinking referred to in Daniel Pink's book, "A Whole New Mind." Participants will be writing short reflections on how these attributes can be applied in the classroom. While reading this book is not required for the conference, it is highly recommended as participants will get more out of the sessions if they are familiar with the text.

Participants work with instructors from The Stephens Group and staff from the art museum to utilize 21st century skills in order to create relevant real-world products. The following highlights what the participant can expect at MDMC:
