Christian Mounger: 2008-09 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

This Faculty Development Grant provides an on-going opportunity for me to become more familiar with current design software, thereby benefiting my teaching and my ability to be up to date with digital practice in the studio. Up-to-date knowledge of these fundamental applications is essential to my ability to teach and to work in the studio. Furthermore, as a resource for digital imaging in the Foundation Department, this software makes it easier for me to mentor other design faculty as they implement digital imaging in their courses. One task I have this summer is to up-date the digital color-mixing templates used by all the Connections through Color and Design faculty, and make these files accessible on the O-Space; this grant makes it easier for me to complete this task.
