My office hours this week

I’m sorry about having to reschedule my Thursday office hours this week — I’m attending a Society of Professional Journalists conference in the Twin Cities.

If you do want to come see me,  I’m having my extra office hours Tuesday from 1-2 p.m. and 
Wednesday from 9-11 a.m. You should also plan to go to the open lab on Friday in Vilas 2111 — in addition to getting help from STS and the Design Lab, SK will also be on hand to answer any IS-related questions.

Top Five Takeaways from Lecture

Thanks for hanging in there today — here are the top five takeaways from lecture:

  • Web=content, architecture, navigation, design
  • After 20 years the web is STILL causing major 
disruption for marketing and news
  • The future of digital is visual and based in data
  • This online space where it will come together 
for you on the IS and final project
  • Finish strong on the IS!

Get help with InDesign and WordPress in J202 open labs

You’ve got some big deadlines coming up for your IS project, and both of them involve a blend of design and technology savvy. For your layout, you’ll need to take your interview story and turn it into a magazine page (or two if you’re feeling bold). And for your website, you need to figure out how to package all of the content you’ve created.

To get some extra help, you can stop by one of our open labs on Friday, April 6, or Friday, April 13 from 1-3 p.m. in Vilas 2111. Specialists from the Design Lab and STS will be on hand to help with InDesign or WordPress questions. I’ll be there on April 6 and SK will be there on April 13 to answer any other questions you might have as you finish up your work on the IS.
