Student Digital Media Assistants

STAs are responsible for answering basic software questions pertaining to our digital media equipment housed in the Taylor 205, CoRE, and the Media Studio. They are responsible for maintaining the computers at the Digital Media Bar, restocking printers, etc. STAs will be expected to read and report about new technical innovations on the Educational Technology website, learn about the media creation software Educational Technology supports, explore emerging technologies, and offer workshops to help fellow students learn how to use our supported software to create media projects. STAs may be given clerical projects or data analysis and visualization projects. Exceptional STAs may be embedded in classes or departments to directly support faculty or class projects. Educational Technology has several openings for our STA position.
