Tonight (Wednesday April 15) is the first night of the New Media Production & Design graduate showcase. Previously, I highlighted the best web development students from this year’s graduating class, but there are several students specializing in design and photography who deserve mention also.
Every year, graduates of the two-year New Media Production & Design course that I teach feature their work in a two-night showcase. Not everyone can attend the event at MacDonald Hall, and sometimes those that do want a beeline to the graduates who can help them most in new business and contract work. To facilitate that, I highlight the best students in web development each year: those featured above.
In addition to teaching fulltime web development classes, I also teach night courses for continuing education. The constituency of these two groups is quite different: fulltime students are predominantly young (many come directly from high school), enthusiastic, and often lack focus, while night students tend to be mature working professionals. Continuing education students often come to class with very particular goals, which makes teaching them both challenging and rewarding.
