Our SMC program trains undergraduate and graduate students to produce digital artifacts for social media. This is an arts and humanities program focused on critical making, very much aligned with AADHum's commitment to extending conceptual learning opportunities into material practices. To facilitate participation in this pilot program, we are offering a $750 stipend.
Among other things, students will be introduced to a variety of design skills, while also learning how to identify, characterize, and share humanities arguments out of live events. It is our hope that this program will increase student comfort in actively engaging various scholarly communities. We will also explore best practices around privacy, safety, consent, and social media boundaries. If they so desire, students will also have an opportunity to develop a social media portfolio.
expect approx. 7 hours of combined synchronous / asynchronous was commitment per week
