The Reusable Relevant Recording: Creating Engaging and Evergreen Course Content

Monday, February 13 | 2:15PM–3:00PM | Houston Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Research indicates that recorded course content that is shorter and more informal in both style and media format has the greatest impact on student engagement. When students are engaged, they are retaining content. Recording key concepts, facts, processes, principles, and/or procedures that are core to the curriculum can fully leverage reusable, relevant recordings. When you reuse or repurpose these recordings across the curriculum, you are providing your students with a review of the content and activating prior knowledge. This poster will provide a design strategy for creating recordings that focus on learning efficiency and resource effectiveness.

Outcomes: Classify the types of course content that provide greater student engagement and knowledge retention *Describe best practices and sustainable workflows for creating course content *Apply a design and development framework to ensure recordings are evergreen
