Parody hits close to home

February 11, 2010

Two weeks ago, students at the University of Denver released a parody of “The Office,” a popular TV show. In the six-minute video, a college professor bungles use of technology in a class and then gradually improves. Prof. Lynn Schofield Clark’s class “Innovation in Mass Communications” created the production; it reveals student frustration with some faculty members’ inability to appropriately use technology.

The project was inspired by Michael Wesch, producer of the well-known video “A Vision of Students Today.” Wesch was on the UD campus when the video debuted and later wrote in his blog, “I’m a big fan of mini-projects like this to kick off a course. Sometimes my students create ‘trailers’ for their final research projects.”
