London Program – Summer 2013
Designed for everyone interested in learning more about Web 2.0 applications, this program offers two classes that are appropriate for graduate students in the School of Library & Information Studies and interested students from other graduate majors. Coursework examines theory, concepts and techniques, while using London as the subject matter on which practical projects are based. Particular emphasis is given to settings from children’s books. Students plan, design and create websites, podcasts, short films, digital photographs, personalized books, and other multi-media presentations. Excursions to other parts of the United Kingdom and a day in Paris are included.
Note: A portion of this program will be taught online pre-departure, upon return, or a combination of both.
