Propose a Summer 2015 Course

We are now accepting proposals for New Media courses that can be taught in the summer session of 2016 from our graduate students and faculty! Please remember that summer session courses must be self-sufficient, so the enrollment must be high enough to make the course viable. For this reason, we are especially interested in courses with broad appeal that are capable of filling breadth requirements. Check out the great courses we had on offer this year!

Not only does summer teaching provide a funding opportunity, it's a great — and fun — learning experience —

From Chris Goetz: "Teaching a BCNM summer class was an awesome opportunity to design a brand new course unlike anything else offered on campus. I had the helpful experience of proposing the very first New Meida R1B this summer, and really enjoyed the feedback from the committee that approves R&C courses. And I felt especially liberated in the course design because of the Center's multi-disciplinary nature."

And Kyle Booten: "BCNM is about crossing disciplinary boundaries, and designing a digital poetry class for Summer Sessions has provided me a opportunity to combine technology and the arts in ways that have pushed forward my own thinking. It's great to be able to do this while feeling supported and encouraged to experiment by the BCNM community, a hotbed not just for innovating ideas and technologies but also practices and pedagogies."

Have a fantastic interdisciplinary course idea? Experiment with us and send Lara Wolfe a class description by September 1, 2015 at If selected, you will be employed as a GSI for a special topics course, and will work in conjunction with the Director of BCNM to tailor your section's syllabus appropriately.

We look forward to hearing your proposals, grads!
