Goals and Description

The aim of this project is twofold: (1) to create a showcase through the development of a website of all Montes’s courses where all her students’ projects could be displayed, and (2) to continue a more structural integration of digital platforms to be used by Montes’s students in their final creative projects.

As part of the assignments in all of Montes’s courses, it is a requirement to work on a Final Creative Project. The student selects a topic either covered in the course or an unexplored, but related, topic of the student’s interest. The student has the freedom to choose the best way to convey the project. A digital form enables students to disseminate the project not only among other Bryn Mawr and Tri-Co students, but most importantly to an audience beyond the college. Montes worked with student Cathryne Velazquez to set up a website and archive of student work, and Educational Technology Specialists taught workshops on different project software to introduce students to a range of presentation options.
