Faculty Technology Workshops

Digital Storytelling in the Classroom

Electronic Classroom, Basement of H-L Library, 07/31/2013 @ 9:00 AM (7.0 hrs.)

Have you considered providing an option for students to express themselves creatively or present their research through the narrative structure of a movie? This two day workshop will take participants through the process of creating a digital story. You will learn the basics of a video editing program (Final Cut Pro X), the steps of a successful video assignment, and common techniques for assessing video projects.

Each participant will create a 3 to 5 minute story using digital photos, video, music, and voice narration. This class is all about creating a digital story - even if you have never created a video before. Experienced staff will be on hand to assist with the process.

Lunch and $200 stipend provided. Limited to 10 participants.

Explain Complex Concepts to your Students: Tools to Create Custom Videos

Electronic Classroom, Basement of H-L Library, 08/08/2013 @ 9:00 AM (7.0 hrs.)

What concepts do your students find particularly challenging that you have to explain multiple times? Have you thought about putting lecture material online for student review and are not sure where to start?

In this one-day workshop you will craft an instructional video from a topic of your choice using a mix of video, audio and presentation tools. These videos can be shared through Blackboard or other web resources.

Lunch and $100 stipend provided for faculty. Limited to 16 participants.

Physical Computing with Arduino

Hazelton Room - Kanbar 109, 07/10/2013 @ 9:00 AM (7.0 hrs.)

In this one-day workshop, participants will learn how to use physical sensors to measure data points (e.g., temperature, light), log the data and send it to computer applications. The workshop will focus on the arduino microcontroller, an open-source electronics prototyping platform designed to make using electronics in multidisciplinary projects more accessible. With arduino, participants will explore how sensor data can trigger electronic devices and control outputs such as motors and lights. The workshop will close with examples of computing projects that interact with the physical environment and discuss how these kinds of projects can help students explore ideas in new ways.

Lunch and $100 stipend for faculty. Limited to 9 participants.
