Student Symposium 2011
Release date: April 29, 2011
Goucher College's 2011 Student Symposium — which combines the Digital Arts Showcase and Contest, the Julia Rogers Research Prizes, and presentations on both research-based and creative works that stem from independent student-faculty partnerships — will be held Friday, April 29, 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., around the Athenaeum, including in the Batza Room and periodicals area on the fourth floor.
The Digital Arts Showcase is a collection of student assignments nominated by professors or students that were completed using digital arts technologies. These pieces show exceptional initiative and talent on the part of the students. Showcase projects come from a variety of disciplines and have been completed by students of varying technical skill levels.
Students and professors will be on hand to talk about the parameters of the assignments, how they were completed, and how the use of technology contributed to the students' understanding of concepts and content.
Goucher's library and the Friends of the Goucher College Library sponsor an annual research prize competition for outstanding research by students using library resources. The $250 prizes were first offered in 2004, in honor of the 150th birthday of Julia Rogers, one of the college's major benefactors.
The event will also highlight the winners of the Digital Arts Contest, which provides an opportunity for students to submit projects created outside the classroom to be rated based on artistic merit. The submissions will be judged by a panel of local artists to determine the first-place, $500 winner. All showcase entrants' works are eligible for the contest.
