Summer Video Camp Underway!

More and more faculty use video in their courses but discover they can’t always find the “right” video on YouTube. So professors are creating their own. And the Center for Teaching and Learning is supporting them.

Twenty faculty members are participating in CTL's first Summer Video Camp. We are offering two two-week sessions with 10 faculty in each one. The participants are getting an intensive hands-on experience producing their own high-quality instructional videos that support and enhance student learning outcomes and strengthen faculty-to-student interaction.

They are creating two videos: One on their own using Kaltura CaptureSpace Desktop Recorder available in Canvas and the second working with a professional video production team from Audiovisual Integration and Support for Learning Environment (AISLE).

Participants are learning and going through all the steps in the production process: Pre-production (writing scripts and creating storyboards), Production (recording the videos), Editing, and Uploading to Canvas (including captioning).

Faculty interested in how to create and use video in their courses should keep their eyes open for future workshops.

Funding for this program is provided by the Office of Academic Affairs.
