Course DescriptionThis lecture course introduces the concepts and theories that animate visual work in all media and forms, providing a foundation for students embarking upon their studies in the culture industries. It offers theoretical, historical and cross-disciplinary perspectives, and is designed to establish a framework of knowledge that will enhance understanding of the cultural and technical power and limitations of various media.
NotesThis course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
