Stuart’s visit last week was a whirlwind of activity. We spend all day Tuesday in ELL developing the plan for the multimedia book. Will Luers, who is our Scalar consultant for the project, joined us to provide a tutorial on authoring with Scalar. We inventoried and organized our materials so that they can be easily added to the templates. The next day we worked on the grants for the next phase of the project.
We also had the opportunity to welcome two new members of the Pathfinders team. Madeleine Brookman, an Honors student in the CMDC program, will take over duties begun by Amalia Vacca, who is graduating this fall. Madeleine will work with Grigar on a variety of duties, including overseeing the media assets of the project, managing its website and social media sites, and helping to develop the multimedia book. Troy Wayrynen is a professional videographer who worked for many years at the Columbian newspaper before joining the CMDC Program this fall to pursue courses in multimedia design. Troy will be in charge of editing the final versions of the videos.
