The IE Communication Lab will provide students with professional experience in designing and creating primarily web and social media-based written and audiovisual content for IE-based and external clients.

In this Lab, students will develop the necessary skills to produce audiovisual content work from start to finish. From the initial meeting with the client, creating a content strategy,  until the final submission of the content materials, students will learn how to apply marketing and creative methods as they create videos, podcasts, and photographic content according to the clients’ needs.

Students will also learn how to develop web content, such as generating blog posts, short articles based on original reporting, and dynamic social media content designed to meet the clients’ needs.

Once they finish the Lab, students will have created professional-level audiovisual and written products they can add to their professional portfolios.


Meet with clients to discuss their audiovisual content needs or develop and pitch proposals for dynamic and creative audiovisual and written content, such as: podcasts, graphics, videos, photography, originally researched articles and interviews, blog posts, and social media content.

Present to the client a final product or the different development stages of one.

Work in a group and experience the importance of synergies.

Develop a content strategy which effectively engages audiences with meaningful and impactful content. This includes market and competition analysis.

Address different issues that might arise, bearing in mind the production process and the clients’ needs, and present creative solutions to problems.

Create content from start to finish. For audiovisual projects this will include: pre-production, recording, editing, and post-production. For written pieces this will include web-based and original research, interviewing, writing, editing, and integration of appropriate graphics into the written proposal.
