Friday Roundtable: Assignments that click

Join CTAL and the Library on Oct. 4 for a session on designing student multimedia projects.

The University of Delaware's Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning invites faculty and staff to its Friday Roundtable event on Oct. 4, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., in room 208 of Gore Hall to learn about student multimedia projects. 

Students are constantly plugged in — daily news in video clips, riveting stories via podcasts, and cleverly designed pop-up ads on every virtual page. But while students engage with these digital formats daily, they are not experts in how the information within those formats is constructed or how it can influence them or others.

Through the process of creating media, many students find a deeper understanding of course content and overall communication skills. There are many tools that faculty members can use to help students build their own multimedia assignments in courses, but getting started can be daunting.

Speaking at the Friday Roundtable on Oct. 4 will be UD faculty and library staff who have found innovative ways to use multimedia assignments to support their course goals. The discussion will involve the promises, pitfalls, and best practices of multimedia creation within various courses. Particpants can discover the best ways to get started and make assignments that click.
