Breakout Session 1: Workshop

Animated, Authentic, Accessible and (Well Almost) Free – Teaching with Instructor Produced Video

Wednesday, November 16th

Grab the attention of today’s learner with brief, high impact videos of your own creation, or that of your students.  Instructors can easily incorporate video instruction into every lesson by using video authoring tools freely available on the web.  Assignments can be created around the use of video to engage students and even have them “teach back” to their peers.  Using YouTube to distribute video ensures that videos support universal design for learning.  The potential educational uses for video also promote the acquisition of 21st century skills
