Workshops

The Digital ACT Studio offers a variety of workshops that instructors may request for their classes. Workshops are an excellent way to introduce students to the Digital ACT Studio and encourage them to visit on their own for feedback and assistance on digital projects.

Introduction to the Digital ACT Studio

The Digital ACT Studio teams up with the Digital Media Commons to share what resources are available to students, how they can receive help from these two departments, and how to best utilize the space.

Storyboarding & Planning

The Digital Studio helps students plan and organize their projects by emphasizing the importance of planning and organizing during the beginning stages of an assignment. We provide an activity and explanation of how storyboarding is useful for digital and visual projects.

This workshop is best suited for students in the planning stages.
