COMD 1100, Fall 2016

COMD 1100, Fall 2016

This basic design and color theory course explores graphic communication through the understanding of the elements and principles of design, as well as the design process, including idea development through final execution. This is a course in visual literacy and the design process: How we see, how we analyze the effects of our vision, and how we craft a design that will have energy and content. All projects will include thumbnail sketches, discussion and research. A weekly scrapbook will be kept. Media used are paint, paper, ink, pencil, ruler, knife, glue, and digital software for expressing graphic ideas. Numerous critiques will take place throughout the course and students’ active engagement in group discussion will play a vital role in establishing an atmosphere of collaboration and shared learning.

ENG2720 Writing with New Media, SP2016

ENG2720 Writing with New Media, SP2016

In our “Writing with New Media” class, we will define what we mean by the term “new media,” learn a shared terminology for understanding new media, create deliverables with new media individually and collaboratively, and establish the foundation of your professional and technical writing online presence. More specifically, you will: • Experiment with new media communication technologies and articulate how they relate to traditional media technologies; • Develop literacies for reading, evaluating, and creating new media communications; • Collaborate and share your new media compositions within a supportive community of compositionists; • Build heuristics to enable your dynamic transition to learning new media technologies as they emerge, and • Integrate the composition process into your new media creation practices (drafting, revising, and reflection).
