What Role Does Technology Play in Starting Your Digital Media Program?

Thursday 4 August, 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Forum B: Issues of Scale
Room 502B

In the last few years, the number of departments that offer digital media programs has expanded dramatically, in four-year colleges and universities that offer terminal degrees, institutions that offer certificate programs, and continuing education classes. When educators develop these programs, there are obviously concerns about accreditation, faculty recruitment, and curriculum development, but the role of technology in supporting such endeavors should not be discounted.

This forum features some of the educators who have successfully developed digital media programs and their experiences with integrating technology.
