Some last quick tips:
- Save libraries and media externally preferably to a jump drive
- Make a copy of the project in case something happens
- Import all media before beginning
- Record audio narration as one piece and then they can edit as needed
- The files will be too large to email, so we’ll share your final projects on YouTube.

I’m excited to see your final projects!
Check out the rich schedule of events for International Education Week!
Events start this Friday night, November 3rd at 7:30 in McGaw Chapel with the Culture Show.
According to the organizers, “last year, we had 900 people attend the show overall and we hope we can make this year even more successful.The idea is to bridge the gap between international and domestic students AND for the campus community to come together to encourage the cultural diversity represented at Wooster.”
This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a multicultural event as part of your Instagram project.
I write to pass on some information about Fall Break Service Opportunities from the Dean of Students Office. Think of these of other opportunities to be involved in the wider community!
We want to make you aware of a great opportunity for your students. Over Fall Break, several of our service organizations are looking for volunteers. This is a great opportunity for first-years to learn about our service projects here on campus. This is also a good way to get them out of their dorms and into the community. We will be advertising this unique break activity in our October Newsletter, but we would also appreciate you mentioning it in your classes.
Here is the sign up for the various days and sections needed:
If you or your students have questions, please contact Nate Addington, Director of Civic and Social Responsibility (firstname.lastname@example.org). Hopefully this will help the students engage with the community and provide some service to our local organizations. Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.
I write to share an announcement from Proyecto Latino inviting you to show your solidarity with Wooster’s DACA students and others affected by the end of DACA:
“In the wake of the Trump administration’s recent announcement over the end of DACA, it is imperative for the Wooster community to come together in solidarity with DACA recipients and undocumented immigrants both at Wooster and nationwide.
Tomorrow (9/12), we are are planning to show our support with a demonstration. We will gather to take a group photo at Kauke Arch at 10:50 am, then walk to Lowry and stand along the sidewalks holding signs of solidarity. We will also have members of the campus community speak.
Make some posters and spread the word.
Here are the instructions for using the VPN to connect from off campus.
