Word for the Day: Transmedia

What does it mean to tell stories across different media platforms?  How do stories change with the mediums through which they are expressed?  What does it mean to be digitally literate?  What practices and theoretical frameworks are useful for generating digital scholarship in and outside the classroom? How do we apply digital media skills to rigorous scholarship? How are scholars addressing these questions in the 21st century?

These are just a few questions that have sparked the creation of the new UW Bothell Digital Media Student Collective.  The DMSC is a place where students build on the knowledge and activities of other students, faculty, alumni, staff, and the broader community to strengthen media-making activities across campus.  During Spring Quarter, 2011, we will meet on Friday afternoons from 12:30-3pm in the DML 121 (UW2 121).  Bring your media projects, your ideas, and your friends.  Let's make media together!
