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.
We are committed to identifying the future needs of Connecticut's industry and aligning our programming to support the development of skills most applicable to that future workforce. This effort includes producing a Digital Media Manifesto that identifies areas to focus on as part of DMCT's commitment to Connecticut's industry needs.
We actively pursue strategic relationships with industry employers, nonprofit organizations, and higher education institutions focused on film, television, and digital content creation. We are particularly committed to expanding the collaborative and identifying avenues that support professional work experience or showcase student work.
As an educator, we are committed to sharing information about Connecticut's industry by producing digital content, online training, and running or supporting annual events. The Select+CT podcast features advice from industry representatives, and talks from DMCT's annual summits are routinely distributed on our social media channels.
As a DMCT subscriber, you will receive our biannual newsletter with information about upcoming events and the latest news from Connecticut's Digital Media industry.
