E-Portraits: Getting to Know Your Online Instructor

Wednesday, March 13 | 2:50PM–3:40PM | West Prefunction Area
Session Type: NC13
Quinnipiac University Online collaborates with faculty members to create professional quality, video-based biographies called e-portraits. Directed, filmed, and edited by experienced QU Online staff, e-portraits are fun and educational to implement. Faculty learn new skills about digital-media creation and can use their video as they like (e.g., for personal branding and marketing, as a tenure portfolio, for conference promotion or course self-introduction). Having a personalized introduction of the faculty also helps the online course come alive for the students.
