Two Sides of the Digital Literacy Coin: Video's Effect on Student Learning

Wednesday, March 29 | 8:15AM–9:05AM | Room 551
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Standard Presentation
Video is having an effect at Colgate, whether it's being created by faculty for teaching or by students as evidence of learning. From occasional prerecorded lectures to lightboard videos used for daily instruction, Colgate faculty are using video to capture students' attention and deliver content on a regular basis. Students have been consumers of videos for years, but now they are also producing them. Whether a traditional digital story or scientific report, students at Colgate are creating about 200 projects each semester. Learn why faculty both use and assign videos and how Academic Technologies supports them.

Outcomes: Understand why faculty use video to teach students as an alternative or supplement to traditional lectures or readings * Identify key outcomes of video projects and learn how they increase engagement and improve learning * Strategize about how your team of instructional technologists can support both faculty and students use of video based on the Colgate model
