MUNCIE, Ind.

Sixteen universities and colleges have formed the International Digital Media and Arts Association, which will provide research, organizational and teaching assistance in creating standards for evolving digital media curriculum. The group, which was formed in March, will also work to establish best practices, certification and targeted workshops for students and faculty, according to organizers.

“The digital genie is out of the bottle. This is crossing all disciplines,” says Scott Olson, Ball State’s dean of the College of Communication, Information and Media, who was elected the association’s first chairman and chief executive officer.

Participants include:

Ball State University; Carnegie Mellon University; Case Western Reserve University; Columbia College-Chicago; Florida State University; State University of New York; Stetson University; Union University; University of California-Los Angeles; University of Central Florida; University of Denver; University of Florida; University of Georgia; University of Montana; University of Warwick in England; and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
