Final Words

Feedback and marks for your final project and essay were sent to you via pm on the commons. My contract has ended, so you need to contact the department with questions and concerns. They will have my documentation by mid next week. Grades have been sent in already, so you should get your final grade as you normally do.

I had great pleasure going through your projects and essays and reflecting on your processes and development of your ideas and skills and finally the fruit of your work. Whatever the troubles and shortcomings with the new media program in the previous years might have been, I think you all rose to the challenges I put before you this year and met them more successfully than any of us imagined at the start of the year. In doing so, you crossed the bridge from being a student to being an independent professional. Congratulations! I’m sure you have learned much about yourself and your own workings that you can carry forward with you, not to mention all the skills that you developed and honed in working on your project. I will proudly share your final work with our guest critics and program faculty.

I highly encourage you to send some constructive feedback to the department, in the spirit of leaving a valuable legacy of your engagement and your experience for the students who will follow you. If you make the language critically constructive (rather than complaining), I’m sure the program faculty will be happy to receive your feedback. Feel free to use the course commons for communicating on this issue.

I will keep the course site and wiki online for the foreseeable future. Feel free to link to your own material or the course as you need.

Also, please feel free to stay in touch with me at gitaha at gmail dot com. I wish you all the best. This concludes our year together. Loud cheers.
