Video Creation Workshops Provide Framework for LVAIC Digital Literacy
December 7, 2018, @ 11:17 AM
As part of the on-going Teagle Hybrid Learning project, LVAIC hosted two video creation workshops for faculty and staff on Thursday, November 29 at Moravian College and Tuesday, December 4 at Cedar Crest College.
These workshops focused on the principles behind hybrid learning, flipped classrooms, and understanding the learners of the future. These philosophies provide the guidelines by which faculty have the opportunity to shift the future of higher education.
Facilitators for the workshops were Greta Bergstresser, Technology Training Coordinator at Lafayette College and Visiting Lecturer at Muhlenberg College, and Farah L. Vallera, Professor of Practice in Education at Lehigh University.
Vallera and Bergstresser offered best practices in video design and creation, highlighting the importance of lighting, audio, ADA compliance, and video length. This also outlined different types of videos for teaching and learning, explaining advantages and disadvantages of each type. This challenged attendees to imagine ways to engage their students to make videos as part of assignments.
Working in small groups, attendees had the opportunity to engage in facilitated conversations regarding ways to incorporate video into their classes and which tools interact best with their campuses’ systems.
Attendees had the opportunity to see different editing software tools, audio recording tools, and audio editing tools. They also used different technologies for recording and learned about some of the products on the market for video creation, recording, lighting, and audio.
This group also networked with peers from other LVAIC campuses, connecting on the methods they use for teaching from different disciplines. In sharing with each other, they offered advice and ideas for different ways to learn from and engage with students in and out of the classroom walls.
Moving forward, LVAIC is continually offering staff and faculty development opportunities focused on enhancing the skills and abilities of faculty and staff. Part of this work includes advancing digital literacy. With an extension of the Teagle Hybrid Learning grant, LVAIC continues the work specific to hybrid and digital teaching and learning.Social Security Expert Offers Insights at LVAIC Retirement Seminar » « Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative Offers Shared Resource for Online Courses
