PedTech 2: The Merger of Pedagogy and Technology – Lecturing in Cyberspace

General Session IV
Fri. 10:30am-11:15am

Track: Breakout

Translating an onsite lecture for use in an online environment may pose significant challenges both pedagogically and technically.  This presentation will discuss pedagogical strategies for translating onsite learning materials to an online environment, including the use of alignment to identify important material, as well as the importance of parsing material into brief, digestible morsels.  Then, techniques for producing high-quality multimedia pieces will be demonstrated, including low and no cost solutions for video and audio production, both in terms of physical tools (such as lighting), and production software (such as YouTube).
