Meredith College summer class “Who Let the Dogs Out?” has more than just an unusual name to set it apart from a traditional college course. Students in the six-week course learn photography skills that they use to highlight animals at the Wake County Animal Center, which receives approximately 17,000 surrendered animals annually. The primary goal of the class is help these animals find permanent homes.
Taught by Associate Professor of Art Shannon Johnstone, the class is considered a hybrid course because learning takes place both in the classroom and online. Each week, Johnstone gives the students a question that must be answered on their blogs.
