Multimedia Assignments in a Box: Tutorial Packages That Empower Faculty to Assign Digital Literacy Assignments

Monday, January 29 | 2:15PM–3:00PM CT | Preservation Hall, Second Floor
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
As more faculty members incorporate digital literacy learning objectives into their courses, students are being asked to create all kinds of media, including websites, infographics, and podcasts. The University Library at UNC Chapel Hill has been deeply embedded in many of these courses, supporting instructors as they design assignments and teach media making. The demand for our services has quickly outstripped our resources. To sustainably meet this demand, we created tutorial packages for the most common assignments. This poster will share our process, as well as the instructional materials themselves, for other teachers to adapt to their own context.

Outcomes: Identify practical approaches for teaching media making for various common products such as podcasts, posters, infographics, and more * Identify opportunities for collaboration between librarians, instructional designers, and faculty members * Evaluate strategies for teaching media making
