Digital Media Literacy Program to Help Students Acquire Effective Multimedia Technical Skills | The Sophian

During J-Term this year, ETS will be offering a new course in digital media literacy. The Digital Media Literacy (DML) program is a non-credit, accelerated two-week course that gives training in new media technologies.

 

At the end of the two weeks, the 12 students who participate in the program will receive a certificate. “The skill sets will serve [students] well in all academic endeavors, internships and careers,” said Multimedia Courseware Developer Kate Lee.

 

Students who take part in the DML program will have the opportunity to form a strong foundation in media skills. The course will be separated into five sections: digital audio, digital photography, digital imaging, digital video and web development. The learning objectives of the program are to actively engage with different forms of media, use contemporary media ethically and creatively, communicate effectively while creating meaningful media content and gain media literacy by exploring diverse forms of communication.

 

“I believe that students who participate in this program will have a solid foundation in a broad range of media technologies that they can then apply immediately in their coursework, in their internships and in their careers,” said Lee.

 

The course was formed as part of Smith College’s 2011 IT Strategic Plan. One of the main principles of the 2011 Strategic Plan is to “create opportunities for students to develop a technology fluency and aptitude that will serve them throughout their lives.”

 

Smith students also expressed their desire to learn media technologies in an online digital media literacy survey conducted in spring 2012.
