Designed for students at the start of a large scholarly project, this workshop will introduce writing techniques for taking effective and versatile notes, processing what you learn as you read, and developing your own ideas in relation to the texts you’re reading. Bring a reading from your project, as we’ll practice the techniques together. Taught by Jessica Kem, director of the Writing Center.
Adobe Photoshop is the industry-standard program for image creation and editing. Images created in Photoshop can be incorporated into other documents such as Word, InDesign, PowerPoint, and Web pages. Using Photoshop you can easily crop and merge photos (e.g., “Photoshop me in!”) and retouch them to create sharper, more vibrant, and blemish-free images. Students can use Photoshop on their own computers with an Adobe Creative Cloud license.
