Department of Spanish and Portuguese

The Media Center

Location: MEZ 4.102


The Department of Spanish and Portuguese's Media Center develops materials for both the Department and Language Program. It is staffed by two of our graduate students who have the following duties:

  • Department Website: updates, events, news, talks, workshops, publications, and profiles
  • Department Social Media: Facebook page, updates, etc.
  • Filming Department Events: workshops, talks, symposia, etc (we must obtain legal release forms for video recordings and all recordings must be approved at least a week prior to the event)
  • Language Program Projects: recording classes, creating audio-visual materials for classes and exams, promotional videos, etc.
  • Proctoring SSD Labs: contact us a week in advance to schedule if your students need extra time or special support

What we CANNOT do:

  • Canvas Support: a specialized team and service exist for Canvas related issues and questions
  • Creating materials for faculty and students' personal projects
  • Creating materials and visuals (such as posters, presentations, etc.) for invited speakers, guests, or special events. We will be glad to upload and publish any material you will provide us for such events and their dissemination, but we cannot craft or edit them, sorry!
