Dear Faculty Colleagues,
Please join us this Friday, May 17th at noon in 1310 Surge III/The Grove for the last faculty forum of the 2018-2019 school year. Our focus this time will be “Interactive Video Tools.”
Facilitated by ATS instructional designers Mark Wilson and Dr. Margaret Merrill, this Friday’s faculty forum will review different uses of interactive video tools. Interactive video technologies can promote student engagement by creating opportunities for learners to pause and reflect, to ask and answer questions, and to gauge comprehension of key concepts and terms. Faculty at UC Davis use tools such as PlayPosit and Kaltura Interactive Video to spark engagement and reflection in our students.
As I learned in a recent AudioBlog interview with Dr. Laci Gerhart-Barley, video can also be used to supplement or replace lectures in the case of campus closures.
Representatives from UC Davis libraries and faculty from different academic disciplines will share their expertise and perspectives on the subject. For example, Victoria Cross from Psychology will probably discuss her experiences using lecture capture and interactive video technologies available at UC Davis. Special guests may also join us via speakerphone.
Please join us this Friday, May 17th at noon in 1310 Surge III/The Grove.
In addition, the deadline for proposals for faculty microtalks for the Summer Institute on Teaching and Technology is May 24th. If you are interested in applying as a faculty speaker at SITT 2019, please respond to this invitation to submit a proposal (or use this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfkB3t8C3ylnMoSWoeXHfNAsSp4OhhnAzKO5CZHNqLmRsggUw/viewform?usp=sf_link ).
