Knowledgeable staff members will provide individualized assistance and support as participants explore digital media. All instruction will take place in computer lab/classrooms nationally recognized as models of excellence.
Both faculty and graduate scholars are warmly invited to attend. No previous experience with digital media is required. As of 2010, we have a new process for you to receive graduate credit through your home institution. If you would like to receive graduate credit from your institution, please have your advisor contact Cindy Selfe (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that she can document the work and number of class hours you are completing. Room and board costs vary according to accommodations.
