To respond to the needs of Hispanic students to receive appropriate preparation to compete in these expanding career areas, Dewey University proposes to develop a new Bachelor’s Degree program in Information Technology with concentrations in Computer Graphics and Digital Media. Among the professions for which our students will qualify upon completion of this program are: graphic designer, web designer/developer, multimedia developer, media applications developer-as well as emerging computer/IT areas dealing with Internet communications and media tools/mobile applications development. For the proposed IT program, 12 new courses will be developed (36 credit hours), which, when combined with existing curricula (general education courses, math courses, computer courses), will result in the needed curricular.

12 new courses will be developed
• Internet Communications & Technology
• Digital Technologies for Media
• Multimedia for Internet
• Web Resources & Interactive Publications
• Personal Brand
• Project Management 

• Multimedia and Animation
• Software Development for Mobile Apps
• Online Media Tools & Web Applications
• Web Development & Site Management
• Digital Portfolio
• Digital Media Project

Information Technology with concentration in Computer Graphics and Digital Media

GA-diseno-graficoThe Information Technology academic program is a specialization in Computer Graphics and Digital Media that develops professionals that dominates the information technology, known emerging technologies, trends, content needs and message transmission. The professional will learn, dominate and produce structured ideas, concepts and relevant audiovisual solutions. Recognize user behaviors and industry trends, adjusting it in communication and technology integration within their scientific, technological and artistic capacities. The student will learn the details of search for information, data conversion and content creation based on effective information for businesses and individuals. Digital identity and brand positioning alongside the development of the skills and abilities to work creatively in projects related to new technologies and digital media.

General Information:

Academic Support System

presidente-academicsupportAcademic Support System a crucial aspect of the proposed project is the development of a comprehensive academic support system, consisting of both traditional tutoring and online instructional resources, to supplement classroom instruction. This important project component will help Dewey University respond to the urgent need to provide additional academic support to our well- intended, but under-prepared and under-resourced students. Literature supports strong intervention to combat student attrition, particularly in STEM fields. In “A Strategy for Improving Freshman College Retention” (2009), C. Veenstra cites studies indicating that some students who left a science or technology major appeared to have an adequate level of ability, but needed a “more encouraging learning environment,” reinforcing the idea of early, more directed student support services.

Development of Technology Skills among Faculty

In order to address the severe gaps that exist among our faculty in the use of current technology tools, we will enhance faculty skills/capacity to:

1) Develop online instructional materials (to provide students with much- needed supplemental support)
2) Infuse technology into classroom teaching

We propose internal, systematic professional development which will include training on using open-source Moodle CMS, web-based tools, and, classroom instructional technology. A cohort of five STEM faculty members will receive training each year of the project. Our dedicated faculty have indicated their willingness to learn how to use instructional technology, which has become the mainstay of contemporary instruction in higher education.

Expanded Instructional Capacity to Support Additional Programming

The renovated space will accommodate the Faculty Development Center, two computer labs, two math labs, three science labs, and three IT labs. Development of instructional facilities (focusing on lab facilities for science/math/computer areas, as well as instructional labs to support the new academic program.
