course provides personal and professional "empowerment"
in the ability to communicate and express ideas using digital
media. Participants will learn to use technology to generate
ideas and then communicate them through words, images, motion
concepts, audio, and multimedia formats. All ideas will be
discussed within a unified theory of communication. No previous
knowledge of media structures or multimedia programs is required.
course proceeds on a philosophy which advocates active studio
practise. To know how to effectively use multimedia in classroom
situations, a teacher must know how to "produce"
multimedia. The course will focus on developing dynamic skillsets
and will stress training and practise as methods for developing
ability. This course emphasizes studio practise as the road
to professional empowerment.
