COMD1162Raster&VectorF2016

Eat Your Words Food and its connection with identity and culture. This class is paired with Professor Devers’ English Composition 1, ENG 1101 as part of a learning community. Students will use their writing projects from English to explore concepts of visual literacy and visual storytelling. Using the theme of food and culture, students will explore the creative process and principles of design. Ultimately students will be encouraged to discover new relationships between typographic form, space, and structure with the content from their own writing projects. In this course, students will learn concepts and applied theories of digital media and the two fundamental graphic forms: raster and vector digital images and will define and describe similar and contrasting factors in each kind of image. The comparison will also recommend the best practice, specification or standard for using a specific form in a specific application. The course will include basic digital imaging terminology, and techniques including size, resolution, color space and file elements, measurements and file formats. Students are introduced to digital imaging concepts through software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator on the Macintosh operating system. Scanning and digital photography are integrated into lesson plans.

WAC Digital Initiatives: Writing Intensive Certification

WAC Digital Initiatives: Writing Intensive Certification

Current and potential writing intensive (WI) course instructors now have the opportunity to complete the certification process online, in a fast-tracked method well-suited to some faculty members’ crammed schedules. Over the course of the academic year, this born-digital initiative offers faculty a space in which they can view past workshops; discuss how WAC principles work in their own classrooms and disciplines; and submit and share resources. After participating in this project, faculty will submit a portfolio of revised materials to complete the certification process.
