 New GEP Arts Course


Looking for a summer course to fulfill your General Education Program ARTS requirement? Dr. Kym Buchanan is offering Education 135: Thinking and Feeling in Modern Media and Education 335: Advanced Analysis of Modern Media. Both courses are 100% online.

New media include video games, web videos, web comics, meme images, mashups, machinima, and more. We create, share, and consume these media in new ways. Yet they reflect timeless goals, including expressing ideas and emotions, making human connections, and exercising our imaginations. Media remain a cultural commons in which we negotiate our individual and collective identities, aspirations, fears, values, and more. In this course we'll investigate cognitive and affective dimensions of modern media. We'll use a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, including psychology, art, design, education, and business. As a class, we'll focus on adolescents' use of media and tech, including positive and negative influences and behaviors (e.g., trolling). Additionally, students will complete and share their own projects, by (a) creating original media, (b) critically curating found media, or (c) interviewing an adolescent.

3 credits, online, 27 May - 27 Jun​
