Course Media Projects

Media projects, such as short movie projects, image slide shows or poster projects, can offer an engaging alternative to traditional text-based assignments (papers). Students will often be more involved in the learning process for these projects. In some cases students with different learning styles grasp concepts more clearly through audiovisual media than through reading text alone. Another strength of media projects is that they lend themselves to sharing, and generate high levels of peer interest.

Media projects provide students with the opportunity to develop skills in collaboration, critical thinking, planning, organization, and time management. Students also learn to express and organize their ideas through a treatment plan and storyboarding as well as through a variety of media.
