    Course Description:

    In addition to exploring the implications of applying technologies, this course provides students with instruction in advanced imaging techniques relative to both static and animated illustrations. In addition to learning more advanced techniques, students will have an opportunity to research a project, design an appropriate solution, and present their results. The ultimate output of this course is the student’s presentation of a completed portfolio illustrating their best exemplars.  The portfolio should include a narrative description of the scenario, the approach to data collection, resulting renderings, and an interpretation of each chart/graph.  Research references should be cited appropriately.  Given the advanced nature of this course, students should be encouraged to produce the portfolio using presentation software suitable for dissemination via the Internet.
