This workshop is the first in a three-part series on presenting your work online. By integrating a number of digital components through three distinct but iterative workshops, participants will become conversant with several different digital presentation strategies so as to represent a text, image or object with clear authorship and citations. The first session will focus on graphics, specifically how to create graphics and what to consider when you’re conveying meaning through images and design. Before participating in this module, participants will be expected to watch online tutorials accessible via Lynda.com (see below for links).
