Transmedia Knowledge for Liberal Arts and Community Engagement: A StudioLab Manifesto

This workshop helps scholars reframe their research and teaching experience for different people, including friends and family, community organizations, non-profit and business institutions, and the general public. Disciplinary methods and practices have analogues
across modern societies: analyzing materials, presenting information and methodologies, leading discussions, scheduling activities, assigning and evaluating work, giving feedback, connecting to larger conversations and missions—the scholar’s research and teaching
activities have much in common with those of producers: both oversee projects, coordinate collaboration, and
connect individuals to social institutions.

Learning to reframe your passions and skills and share them with others may entail reimagining your work and yourself—slightly or dramatically. As part of this reframing, the workshop initiates you on a path toward three things:

  1. a professional portfolio of work
  2. a collection of stories and experiences
  3. a plan of action

To Register- we will send a Zoom link the day prior to the workshop.
