Spring 2015: Learning Communities:
Integrating Video & Screencasts into Teaching & Research

(Register for the series via this Google form.)

IT and the Libraries at St. Olaf are sponsoring this learning community series to assist faculty and staff in developing video and screencast projects that could be used for student assignments in courses, faculty online lectures, department or event promotion, and more. Led by Multimedia Instructional Technologist Ben Gottfried, the sessions will be a mix of discussion about pedagogy and project design as well as hands-on practice. This learning community is open to those who are just starting to think about video or screencast projects and those who already have some experience. The sessions will be staffed by several instructional technologists and librarians who will contribute to the discussion and provide one-on-one support to faculty and staff participants.
