SST 295-02 - Special Topic: Multi-Media Workshop through a Virtual Global Grinnell

1 credits (Spring)
This online course uses multi-media methods to foster engagement with peoples and places where students are studying, especially off-campus. Drawing inspiration from the tradition of ethnographic film and its concerns with styles and forms of representation, as well as with current scholarship about cross-cultural engagement through technology, the course pursues three objectives. First, students will develop skills with tools of representation including still images, audio, and short videos. Second, students will use their multi-media assignments and comparative discussion with Grinnellians in other locations to deepen ties with different peoples and places. Third, the course provides an online workshop space that experiments with a new form of global Grinnell learning community.

Prerequisite: None.
Note: Dates: April 1 to May 17. 1/2 semester deadlines apply.
Instructor: Larson
