Iíve been ďtaskedĒ rather suddenly to teach VisCom as a lecture course for 60 non-Journalism majors, this spring semester. Iíve been teaching it as a lab class for majors and non majors for more than a decade and would LOVE some help re-thinking the course for lecture.

Can you share:  syllabus, book suggestions, approaches that work, how you are involving larger groups in the materials being taught?

(I had pioneered a fun 40-student, non-lab, non majors VisCom class teaching design in Photoshop and InDesign with the monthly-fee Adobe, but the price hike this summer has made that too expensive.)

I was hoping to include MAC membership. We could possibly consider a fifth panelist if anyone has a particular research or creative interest in virtual reality, augmented reality uses for reporting on race matters.
