Professional Development for Faculty
Faculty can take advantage of our one time workshops geared towards incorporating media projects and other 21st century literacies in to their courses. With these workshops faculty can hone their own digital media literacy skills learning the same information we teach students. Some of these workshops include the added insight on pedagogy and better assessment of media projects. Faculty can view and sign up for available trainings at the Academic Technology EventBrite page.
Students and faculty can also view our set of training guides on the Training Guide page. These training guides are some of the tips and techniques that we go over with students and can be helpful references as they are working on their projects.
Faculty are encouraged to consult with the Digital Media Manager, Meghan Hammiller, or the Media Technologist, Laura Melissa Spencer, for ideas on how they can design multimedia assignments and assessments for their classes using MediaSpot equipment.
