Advanced Interpretive Media provides opportunities for professionals in the field of Environmental Education and Interpretation to gain advanced skills in effective design of non-personal interpretive media, such as wayside exhibits, brochures, newsletters, booklets, interpretive trail signage, interior exhibits, and digital applications. The class incorporates a hands-on lab component, which provides training using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop to produce actual media. The course content will focus on effective design elements, analysis of existing media, interpretive message writing, comparison of modern sign materials, fabrication methods, and current research in the field that involves media. Discussion forums allow classmates to interact, share, and explore media options at their own facilities. The Adobe software tutorials are presented at a basic level, so no prior knowledge of Adobe products is needed.
