Creative Technology in the Classroom

Integrating creative technology into your course can increase student engagement, introduce professional skills in addition to the core subject expertise, and give you and your students a new perspective on course content. It can also be daunting to integrate into your curriculum, particularly if you have little experience doing so.

The Multimedia Lab services help reduce this burden by providing comprehensive support for a variety of creative technologies including video and audio production, animation, large-format printing, 3D printing and virtual reality. MML support includes:

  • Consultations on creative technology assignments for faculty
  • Workshops for students and teaching assistants
  • Equipment for checkout
  • Space for production and editing within our labs and studio.
    The case study below provides a detailed description of this process.

One possible area for future collaboration with MMLs is ‘conference poster design and production’. Students can work on a research project throughout the semester that concludes into a final assignment to be submitted as a poster. The Multimedia Labs can provide training on professional design software and printing on the lab’s large-format printer.
