Objectives/Goals of Classes: The goals of this class are, in a sense, simple- we’ll be creating and delivering professional level video, design, and multimedia work for the new Manhattan Project National Historic Park in Los Alamos, New Mexico. For background on the park and the project please read this article. At the end of this course students will be able to design and manage complex projects and exhibits for museums, cultural institutions, and other entities. Students will be able to work collaboratively in teams toward a common set of goals. Students will become familiar with a variety of new technologies (TBD). Students will be be able to critically address the cultural, ethical, and accessibility challenges related to contemporary exhibition design & development.
