You will repurpose what you’ve learned this semester about your topic for a non-academic audience by completing a multi-modal project. Unlike Stages 1-3, which relied heavily on text as their primary mode, you will use multiple modes of communication to reach your intended audience.CONTENT & STRUCTUREBecause each project will be unique, it is difficult for me to give precise technical directions, which is why you will also send me a proposal before beginning work on your project. However, here are some guidelines for what I will be looking for:Create a polished, substantial, and engaging multi-modal project that:Can be accessed by instructors and peersDraws on at least two of the five modes of communication:Visual typeface, lines, shapes, background, color, transitions, quality of images, visualcoherence, repetition, contrastAudio intonation of spoken words, sound effects, ambient noise, music, volume, silence,transitions from different audio clipsGestural facial expressions, gestures, body languageSpatial line spacing, navigation, transitions, size of page, size of photos, proximity of photos and other elements to each other, line length, visual salience, white space, visual organization, alignmentLinguistic written text or spoken words/narration, word choice, delivery, organization of ideasSends a coherent message to an intended non-academic audienceSends a coherent message to an intended non-academic audienceReflects on your research process, mentioning any unexpected discoveries you made, insights you gained about yourself as a researcher, and traces the evolution of you thinking on your topic over the course of the semester.FORMAT & GENERAL REQUIREMENTSHere are some possible ideas for creating your multi-modal project:Adobe Spark Glideshow–another Adobe product that allows you to add images, videos, text, etc. You have free access to as a U student to create an ad or PSA with strong visual features (the link to Adobe Creative Cloud is on the left menu–you will need to disable pop-up blockers) see:How to make a GlideShow page on Adobe Spark (Links to an external site.)How to make a GlideShow page on Adobe SparkPodcast–interview people whom your audience would find credible, reliable, and knowledgeable about the issue for a podcast (if you create a podcast, you will also need to create a “script” that includes images and text; see Someone Knows Something, ep. 1 (Links to an external site.)–you can see the links that podcasts use to help provide their listeners with additional information, like graphic elements, images, newspaper links, etc.)Photo Essay–create a photo essay on the issue (you must take your own photos; if you choose this option, you must put them into Adobe Spark Glide and add words and sound, which could include narration or music, or both) (see Myanmar (Links to an external site.))Video–(Use Adobe Video, Youtube, your smart phone, or any other video software that your can share without requiring your peers to ‘create an account’) create a short video (2-3 min.) using graphics, clips, images, voice over, interview,on-site clips, text, etc.Adobe or WordPress or another webpage–create a site with multiple pages that includes text, videos, images, graphs, etc. (see #Me Too (Links to an external site.))Write/Illustrate a book: (this can be a narrative or poetry)(drawings must demonstrate quality in terms of visual appeal, there are words, color, is in book format–in Microsoft Word or Adobe’s InDesign you can create a booklet spread that mimics a book)
