April’s Faculty Picks from Around the Web

faculty picks

We’re constantly checking out the Full Sail University Online Faculty Blogs to keep up with what faculty members are sharing with their students. A lot of the content on those blogs is great, recommended reading that appeals to students outside of one specific department, so we’ve decided to share some of our favorites here every month. Here are a few of our picks from the FSO Blogs for April:

  • Entertainment Business/Music Business faculty member Gale Newbold paid tribute to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s best businessmen, Dick Clark, who passed away earlier this month. Her recommended reading: The NY Times article, “The Man Who Made Rock ‘n’ Roll Safe Enough for America.”
  • Media Project Development Course Director Dr. Sue Bedard had a few recent Education Media Design & Technology grads share their advice on succeeding in the program, and it’s advice that all online students will appreciate.
  • Game Design faculty member Lester Frederick shared a link to a great story about Phil Fish, an independent game developer who’s making waves in the industry. Also in the gaming realm, Susan Capozza from Game Development asked students if they consider video games to be art. (She was inspired by the current Smithsonian American Art Museum exhibit, “The Art of Video Games.”)
  • 3D Arts Program Director Pete Bandstra posted a link to a Mashable article that any student can benefit from reading: “5 Ways to Lose Your Dream Job During the Interview Process.”
