In a recent report written by the University of Washington’s Office of the Provost, President Michael Young expressed his vision for the University to become “Tomorrow’s University Today”, not only by adapting and responding to an ever-present change in education, but also by leading the change to explore new and exciting methods of teaching and learning that have yet to be discovered. This “change” has come in the form of online and hybrid class formats that have been adopted and utilized in an effort to provide a more digital, convenient, and innovative alternative for students to pursue their education at the University of Washington.
The University of Washington Bothell prides itself on being forward-thinking by integrating multimedia production education into a wide range of course curricula. Hands-on media production at UWB strengthens the connection between students and media to prepare them for the rising of demand in these fields, especially production and analysis of contemporary and future media.
Here are some examples of student work coming from Professor Jill Freidberg’s class in Post Production and Professor Sam Yum’s Advanced Media Production class. To see the projects, click the links below!
