InDesign for Newspaper instructor Jim Woehrle said this week he hopes to excite his students by getting them up and out of their seats, having them take pictures around campus and making neatly designed newspaper pages.
Woehrle said students who take this class usually have less experience with InDesign and will learn how to use the program to make their own unique and creative pages.
“The ultimate goal of my class is for everyone to be comfortable with the program and be able to make a page when they go back to their classes in the fall, and if they already know how to design a page, how to make it better,” Woehrle said.
As a new page editor at Grosse Pointe North, sophomore Farrah Fasse said she is prepared to learn the ins and outs of InDesign, as this is her first year at MIPA. She said she is excited to see what’s to come.
“I want to be able to be comfortable with InDesign and possibly learn some new design techniques,” Fasse said.
Woehrle, who has taught this class for the past 10 years, said the classroom this year has been the best with lots of space for the big class.
“This is the nicest room that this class has ever been in,” he said. “It always feels great to be working here on a college campus and (in) real college classrooms.”
