Prof. Jill Freidberg’s “Working with Audio” class produced a great collection of audio storytelling projects last quarter. “Sound surrounds us. It’s the invisible element that only becomes obvious when it goes away. Sound is information, stories, location, and memories. It tells us where we are and where we’re going. It fills in the blanks. It forces our imaginations to create the pictures that go with the sounds we hear. It reminds us of places we’ve been, things we’ve done, and feelings we’ve had. Sound alerts us to danger, sets us at ease, wakes us up and puts us to sleep. Sound is everywhere.” – From the BIS 234 Course Description

Prof. Jane VanGalen’s Education students put together an excellent RSA video called “The Muses Go to School: Inspiring Stories about the Importance of Arts in Education”.

Prof. Kristin Gustafson’s “Non-Fiction Writing for Media” students created a bunch of awesome projects in the Digital Media Lab last quarter. Students focused on being able to “demonstrate their nonfiction media writing practices, do original and rigorous out-of-classroom reporting, create a multimedia presentation about a nonfiction media writing practice or practitioner, identify and address media audiences, and engage thoughtfully with nonfiction media writing.”

Prof. Jill Freidberg’s, Autumn 2012, Post-Production Editing students created videos on a wide variety of topics from personal stories to issues affecting their community/world. They used “non-linear video editing programs, and graphic design software, students will create and complete short digital storytelling assignments using the objects, sounds, and images that they find in their lives and communities.” – BISMCS234 Course Description
