Ever thought about teaching with video?
Join us for lunch and learn the art of teaching on camera

Wednesday 13 November, 12.30-1.30pm @ KMC 4-120

In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore how to create teaching videos that promote meaningful learning. Whether you’re recording a short video with a webcam in your office, or developing a series of interactive online videos in Stern’s studio, we’ll discuss how to get comfortable taking your teaching from the classroom to the camera.  RSVP for lunch.

You should attend if:

  • You’d like to experiment with video content in your course, but haven’t found the time yet
  • You’re interested in developing “legacy” materials for your course that you can use and re-use each semester
  • You’re curious about how educational videos can be effective learning tools for students
  • You’re looking to develop confidence teaching on camera
