If you’re thinking of doing the digital studies certificate, you should look into taking J175: Media Fluency in the Digital Age this summer. It runs from May 20 to June 16 — the best part is that it’s entirely online and self-paced, so you can take it from anywhere, even while you work or do an internship. It’s also a core course for digital studies, so it’s a chance to make progress on the certificate.
If you’re part of your lab’s strategy team, you’ll meet with your TA, Jesse and Stacy on Monday morning in 2195 Vilas. (Wait in the hall until we call you in.) Please send us a copy of your draft strategy memo by 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 14. At the 15-minute meeting, you should be prepared to spend three minutes walking through your strategy, answering questions and listening feedback from the three of us. Come prepared to have one person take notes or record the session.
Here’s the schedule:
307: 9:00 a.m.
306: 9:15 a.m.
305: 9:30 a.m.
304: 9:45 a.m.
303: 10:00 a.m.
302: 10:15 a.m.
301: 10:30 a.m.
I’ve got a change to my normal office hours today. If you want to come see me, I’ll be in Vilas 2122 (lucky Lab 306!) and available between 1 and 2:50 p.m. Please swing by to grab me, and we can find a place to talk. Otherwise, you can find me Monday at noon in the J202 labs or next Thursday from 11:30-12:30 over in the Grainger Learning Commons.
Keep working away at your projects — you’ve made amazing progress so far!
If you need help with anything as you wrap up your IS project, remember we’ve got an open lab today from 12:30-3 p.m. in Vilas 2111. I’ll be there to consult on any of the elements, and we’ll have a WordPress expert from STS there who can help with any technical issues. Please stop by!
