What better place to mention the evolving faculty emphasis on social media skills than on the Art & Design blog. From June 6 – 8, two dozen Art & Design faculty members attended the 4th annual Digital Spa, initiated by Prof. Sandra Markus from the Fashion Design Department.
The workshop on social media was taught by Kurt Vega, industry professional and adjunct in the Computer Graphics Department.
Faculty spent three sessions learning about social media sites and activities like Linkedin, Twitter and blogging. They discussed ways to integrate social media with their teaching, to enhance students’ coursework, and to improve knowledge transfer.
