UWCOM Professional Development Workshops

Our UWCOM workshops are catered towards undergraduate students looking to develop their skills in the multimedia sphere. Because technology is rapidly changing, we aim to change with it. We’d love to have you decide to take that step with us.

In today’s world, communication and technology are intricately woven together. The ways we communicate thoughts, ideas, and creative inspiration to others across the globe with a simple internet connection is powerful.

These development workshops aim to provide you the tools and the resources to communicate those ideas effectively on a variety of platforms such as videos, sound media, blogs, and even your resume.
