Session II Classes
Summer Academy II students choose between one of the following courses for their week-long academic experience.
Writing and speaking are fundamental skills in any course of study, but increasingly students are expected to communicate messages through digital media to connect with audiences around the world. Digital storytelling blends audio narration with images, video, and music or ambient sound to create short media projects that share a story important to the author. Students will work with trained media specialists in the AT&T Learning Studio to record, edit, and produce successful media messages in a range of styles. Taught by Dr. Kyle Dickson, associate professor of English and director of the Learning Studio at ACU.
Students will learn, through a case-study based approach, the basics of entrepreneurship. This class explores the process of generating a business idea and applying the resources and strategy to launch it into a workable, successful organization. Taught by Dr. Jim Litton, assistant professor of business and director of ACU’s Griggs Center for Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy.
