LIB 1201: Research and Documentation for the Information Age Spring 2012

LIB 1201: Research and Documentation for the Information Age Spring 2012

In this course we will explore issues in research and documentation for text (in print and online), images, sound, and multimedia. You will investigate where information comes from and how it is organized in both traditional and emerging media. We will examine the ethics of information use and determine how to critically evaluate sources. Throughout the course, you will create and present research and documentation projects using traditional and emerging media and technologies. This is a writing-intensive course. You should expect to spend 4-6 hours outside of class time preparing for class each week.

English 3402: The Graphic Novel

English 3402: The Graphic Novel

This course is designed to introduce students to the genre of graphic novels. Required readings represent both Eastern and Western comics traditions, and range in publication dates from around 1930 through the 21st century. Looking at these primary texts alongside an important critical work (Understanding Comics), students will learn to identify the key components of graphic narrative—including technical aspects of visual storytelling as well as more traditional elements of prose narrative—and how they work together to form a graphic narrative. Students will also be asked to identify the major themes addressed by the genre over time, and to evaluate the ways in which those themes, and the ways they are addressed, have changed.

This project is a game, in the game users receive instruction on research strategies. Players match correct research tools to one another, and guidelines for starting and finishing the research paper are levels that need be completed. Example “citations” are needed to be correct and in MLA format in order to go to next level (rough drafts).
