Media Across the Curriculum (MAC) provides two opportunities for students and faculty to participate as producers of media.
MAC IN THE CLASSROOM
MAC in the classroom is an opportunity for faculty to create a hands-on opportunity in their course for students to be creators of their own narratives. The program is designed to infuse media literacy skills into any discipline. Support is provided to faculty who wish to develop a project, whether a single assignment or a more intensive activity. For a more in-depth look at how this might fit into your discipline, see our presentation Building Community and Equity with a Media Project, presented on February 3, 2023 for the GSU Center for Teaching and Learning New Faculty series.
FIRST VOICE STORY SLAM
The First Voice Story Slam, a storytelling competition, aims to amplify the diverse voices on our campus and provide a platform for students to tell their stories. Modeled on The Moth, a National Public Radio show, First Voice annually invites GSU students to tell a true story live based on the theme of the evening. Finalists are chosen by the audience and advance to a Grand Slam, where they are eligible for cash prizes. During the week between the competitions, storytellers receive coaching from professionals in the field to hone their stories.
