Workshop: Creating Instructional Video Using Personal Devices Aug. 22-23

10 am – 4 pm, August 22 and 23, Language Center, Kohlberg Hall

This workshop is intended for faculty with an interest in creating course, or program related videos. We’ll walk you through the process of conceptualizing, storyboarding, scripting, filming, editing and captioning a video. We’ll encourage you to bring your own camera, record off a phone or personal device and edit using software available to you through the College. You’ll walk away with a finished video that’s ready to use and the skills to replicate the process in the future.

This is an opportunity to work on, for example:

Flipped Instructional materials
Introduction Videos
Lab Safety
Video Assignments
Course materials that don’t change much from semester to semester, might benefit from repeated viewing and may productively be introduced outside of class


Intro to Russian:
Chemistry lecture:
