Digital Slide Show Presentation
In an educational partnership with WPRI Channel 12, students from DEE3999 worked to find and present solutions for reconfiguring the Center for Media Production in order to bring segments of The Rhode Show to campus. The project encouraged students to conduct research, visit sites (WPRI Channel 12 and Brown University Athletics), and compile findings into a proposal presented by 4 teams: Producers, Logistics, Design, and Engineering. The proposal highlighted the features of the Center for Media Production at Johnson & Wales University, its missing components, and how WPRI Channel 12 can benefit from using the space for its lifestyle segment called The Rhode Show. With this in mind, DEE students were encouraged to think strategically, logically, and creatively to persuade Johnson & Wales University and WPRI Channel 12 to establish a formal partnership. Overall, the project proposal allowed DEE students to network and take on real-industry experiences.
