This course is run differently than my other courses, as there is a rigorous group research project embedded in the curriculum in addition to the writing and homework assignments. The project will require you to conduct original research, find experts on your topic and interview them, film and edit an original video, design a presi and infographic, and create an aesthetically pleasing, clean, professional website to share your research findings.
