Ut Prosim Beyond Boundaries: Global Outreach During the Pandemic

Ut Prosim Beyond Boundaries: Global Outreach During the Pandemic is an exhibition curated by Dr. Sweta Baniya, Laura Gautier, and Scott Fralin to present an example of Virginia Tech’s motto Ut Prosim in action. In this exhibition, we curate our experiences of an online service-learning-based Professional and Technical writing course at the Department of English that aimed at serving rural communities in Nepal to enhance digital literacy.

This exhibition curates the multimodal and digital works produced by the students, including their reflections on learning from the partnership. The exhibition will also illustrate the stories and experiences of Dr. Sweta Baniya, her student Laura Gautier, and the community partner Ravi Kumar. The students created a varied range of user documentations, mobile application prototypes, and web interfaces that focused on empowering the rural population by enhancing digital literacy in post-pandemic Nepal. Below we share information on the class followed by our reflections, along with student experiences.
