Whether you are an Econ student looking to engagingly present data, a Psych or Sociology concentrator hoping to create winning case studies, or a Communications or Poli Sci concentrator wanting to clearly document public policy issues, web sites are an excellent, flexible medium in which one can fashion effective and complex arguments. In this mini-course, each student will create a web site that pursues an argument related to an issue in their discipline. To this end, we will learn about web research databases, as well as basic web authoring via Dreamweaver, while examining model web sites to discuss the different ways that this medium shapes argumentative strategy. We will also examine how to integrate basic audio, video, and/or PowerPoint into your web site projects. This course, which presupposes only the basic skills of anyone who uses the computers in the Fishbowl, is for all who wish to expand their writing ability in this new media form, and the assignments are geared to accommodate a wide range of interests and objectives.

Because of the flexibility of the assignments, you will be able to take the projects you create in this course and utilize them as part of the work you do within your major.

This class meets once a week from March 6 to April 17.
