Description:

"...And you'll also be creating the website" is a phrase that administrative assistants hear often.  If this responsibility has been added to your plate - or you are just interested in learning about web content and design - this session will give you a background in the basics of web design theory and the psychology of how readers scan websites.  You'll also learn how to structure web content, create the most effective graphics and write text that people will want to read.

In this workshop, participants will gain:

  • Increased knowledge of basic photo and graphics editing, content development and web maintenance
  • Knowledge of the basics of web design theory and the psychology of how readers scan websites
  • Ability to identify what makes an effective web photo or graphic and edit it using simple Photoshop functions
  • Understanding of the difference in writing for the web and traditional media and the ability to create appropriate text for websites

Presented by: Rinn Siegrist, Art Director, Recruitment Marketing and Kristi Shackelford, Assistant Vice Provost, Academic Policy & Curriculum Development
