Improve Instructional Materials
"I will be teaching a new course for [the School of Information & Library Science] in the Fall focused on instruction in school and public libraries. I want to use the Adobe CC products to develop materials for this course that can serve as exemplars for student work." -- School of Information & Library Sciences
"In Spring 2018, I will teach a course in literary editing and publishing. I will require students to use Adobe CC for designing books and documents. I'd like to request access so I can begin developing instructional materials." -- English & Comparative Literature
"For designing presentations for in-class use, and creating products (web pages, web-based presentations, etc.) that facilitate public outreach. Much of my work with students grounds itself in collaborative, community-based research. To be able to create materials that will both appeal to and challenge broader publics, coming across as suitably (and stereotypically) 'professional' rather than clunky and 'academic,' is certainly a goal of engaged scholarship. The Creative Cloud will make this process immeasurably simpler." -- American Studies
"I am [an Associate Dean in the Office of Undergraduate Education]. I need to be able to evaluate the product so I can support instructors and departments that are using this."
Support students' Digital Literacies
"I plan to use Illustrator and InCopy to help students produce term papers that rely on annotated graphs that mix text, graphics, and vectors." -- Linguistics
"I hope to use these tools in assisting beginning Arabic students to manipulate the different script. I envision this tool being powerful in the context of learning the visual aspects of a new language and script." -- Asian Studies
"My students prepare photographic, videographic, and audio data for reports, presentations, and manuscripts. I ... would like ... to assist students in learning about new tools and new ways in which to communicate their science." -- Biology
"I teach a class on Scientific Communication and Visualization. I lead students through exercises using Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator to create professional posters, handouts for stakeholder groups, etc." -- Geography
"I plan to use Creative Cloud for all kinds of course-related student activities, including the production of web pages, apps, and memes." -- Religious Studies
"We will use Adobe Premier for video editing for a class on fluid mechanics, having students shoot video of water flow phenomena and editing and post-processing using Adobe apps." -- Marine Sciences
"I teach 4 courses that are designated Experiential Education credit, meaning that I require ethnographic fieldwork from my students in those courses. The intensive ethnographic research method requires documentation through photography, videography, and audio interview, and Adobe Creative Cloud programs would help me demonstrate how to document and process that documentation so that the students can produce their multimedia final projects." -- American Studies
"[For one course], to use Photoshop and video editing as a tool to implement group therapy in their clinical rotation. The current group therapy are heavily based on paper and pencil, however, there is great potential for the students to use the Adobe Creative Cloud resources to create innovative ways for engaging patients with mental illness in their group therapy activities and treatment plan. [For the second course], the main purpose is to use Adobe Creative Cloud to create ways of translating traditional research report into easy-to-use tools for clinicians. For example, they may be able to create a step-by-step design on how to implement depression screening in the outpatient units." -- Nursing
