The Emerging Practitioner
Digital Media CT is piloting a free micro-credential course that helps undergraduate students increase their knowledge of CT-based careers in film, television, and digital media.
This first course targets emerging undergraduate talent unfamiliar with the various career opportunities in Connecticut. Students who enroll in the course will expand their knowledge of media and technology companies located in the state while also learning how to connect their skills to companies outside their immediate field. Students will also consider their responsibility as emerging professionals and why it's necessary to keep up with industry and technology trends.
DMCT conducts small industry research to understand the needs of CT employers in film, television, and digital media. This work includes a biannual effort to update the Four Branches of Digital Media. It also includes short surveys to obtain current information on technology trends in the industry. Outcomes of this research are shared on the DMCT website or distributed to DMCT partners.
Training and Programming
DMCT produces or supports various training and programming efforts that promote film, television, or digital media. Examples include: A one-day digital media summit, a speaker series, a collection of micro-credential badges, and a short-term industry placement program. DMCT also partners on external events, such as the Global Game Jam held annually at Quinnipiac University.
Sharing information about Connecticut's industry and the many careers opportunities available to young professionals is part of DMCT's mission. Although this effort goes hand in hand with training and programming. DMCT also produces content such as the Select+CT podcast and Let's Talk Media Series. This content offers helpful information to young professionals.
