Research Opportunity for Advanced Undergraduate

The Arts Education Program in the College of Fine Arts has a partnership with the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID). The program is excited to provide a research opportunity for a student who is interested in investigating new inclusive aspects regarding technology and the creative process. Professor Eric Handman from the School of Dance in collaboration with faculty and students from The Center for Medical Innovation’s GApp lab (A branch of the Entertainment Arts and Engineering program) and autism researchers from the Department of Family and Consumer Studies, have designed a new inclusive Virtual Reality game entitled, Choreografish. The research team is hoping to add technology elements that can support members from the Deaf Community in actively participating with the game as well. This paid internship will require the student to complete a literature review regarding dance and Deaf culture as well as conduct local and national interviews with members from the Deaf Community. The internship/scholarship pay is $1,000. If you are interested in this opportunity, please email Assistant Dean McIntyre-Martinez and Professor Handman at kelby.mcintyre@utah.edu and eric.handman@utah.edu.
