About Beyond Classroom Walls
At the grand opening of the Beyond Classroom Walls exhibit, scores of visitors poured into the Steinhilber Art Gallery to get an up-close-and-personal look at five student-faculty collaborative projects that took place outside the traditional classroom setting.
Like the others delighted by the 2-D versions of themselves, Whitman couldn’t resist asking a friend to take a photo of her standing in front of the photo.
“It was very cool seeing a huge picture of myself hanging on the wall,” Whitman said, who spent her summer in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., testing the beach waters for E. coli and other bacteria.
During the event,
students from Lim’s Multi-platform Storytelling in the Digital Age
course documented the entire night. While some students snapped
photographs of Beyond Classroom Walls, others videotaped interviews or
live-tweeted about the event using the Journalism Department’s Twitter
account. The whole presentation was also streamed online for people all
over the country to see.
One of the stories showcased the Environmental Microbiology Collaboration, in which more than 150 students tested the water in rivers and lakes to determine if it was safe for people to swim in or not.
