*Media Toolkit* [Counts for All Tracks] This course situates media in the broader context of an innovative and integrative liberal arts education. As such, it enables students to evaluate and make decisions concerning their relationship to proliferating technologies and various new media. This course combines lectures and lab-work to help students familiarize themselves with various software platforms and multimedia tools, in order to more effectively gather, analyze, contextualize, present, and re-present information within a broad political and cultural framework. After completing the five different modules (intro, image, word, sound, number), students better understand--and are more confident in using--the various modes and methods that enable the critically informed to read between the pixels, as well as meaningfully contribute to the ever-expanding digital public sphere. This is an Integrative & Production course. [Counts for All Tracks]
