Course Description

This graduate course introduces students to project development, management, and basic computer programming. In this course we will focus on the theoretical and practical sides of project management, such as needs assessment, design, planning, and accessibility. Issues considered will include cultural studies and accessible interface design, as well as broader discussions of how to ethically structure research questions and methodologies within a digital environment. Students will gain practical experience with coding, design, and version management with the final goal of publishing a collaborative working project. This practical experience will be complemented by readings in instructional design and digital methods theory and practice.
