Week 1 - Sept. 14

Module One

Idea 2

Welcome to Week 1! At this point, you have visited the welcome page to gather a basic introduction to the course. If you have not done this yet, please pause here and return to the Welcome page now. 


The goal of this week is to get you familiar with the course expectations, the external class website (this website) as well as Blackboard forums, where you will post and respond to your peers and professor. 

Take a moment to note the layout of the module page. You will see that there are clearly laid out tasks for you to complete. It is important that you follow each task and fully read or watch every resource. Your posts and assignments will be graded with the expectation that you have accessed these resources.


You will see that every module contains contact information at the bottom of the page should you need to get in touch with me. Please ensure that you have checked the weekly module AND the detailed course outline or assignment breakdown for answers to common questions before contacting me. I am available to discuss any questions or concerns for which answers are not already clearly provided through the course material. As per the course outline, when emailing, please identify yourself clearly, and write "Senior Studio” in the subject heading. Email messages will be responded to Mon.-Fri.
