video-editClearly, today’s students pay attention to video far more than print or even graphics. In this course you’ll get comfortable with the technical issues surrounding videos, including finding, making, and sharing them, and ways to make them a regular part of your teaching toolkit. You will learn to 1) find and use videos relevant to your courses, 2) convert existing presentations to video, and 3) record and embellish your own videos and animated graphics with sophisticated software for use in weekly lessons, demonstrations, explanations, or just “welcome to the class!” It’s time to enhance your own instruction with video! Note: Video production is time-consuming and computer intensive. Participants must commit to 5-7 hours per week, participation in the weekly forums, and minimally have a 64-bit multimedia computer running Windows 10 or MacOS10.14, a 1366x768 monitor, and good internet access

Tuition is free!  Satisfactory completers of the Practicum will receive a certificate and a stipend!

video-in-educationWell done educational videos communicate much more to a wider audience than a printed handout, but require planning, execution, polish, and posting to a reliable platform—far more than a selfie posted to social media. In this second bootcamp addressing video, teachers will take the giant step of creating and delivering video that will both teach and assess in their subject area. Working in a supportive group atmosphere, participants will practice the techniques of planning, producing, and sharing video that can communicate and evaluate in a way that static text and images cannot. Note: Video production is time-consuming and computer intensive. Participants must commit to 5-7 hours per week, participation in weekly forums, and minimally have a 64-bit multimedia computer running Windows 10 or MacOS10.14, a 1366x768 monitor, and good internet access

Prerequisite: Technology Bootcamp III, or comparable experience with Camtasia editing and YouTube uploads.

Tuition is free!  Satisfactory completers of the Practicum will receive a certificate and stipend.

Designed for new faculty with minimal background in education theory and application, adjunct instructors are encouraged to take part in this exploratory and reflective experience designed around the resources offered in the NC-NET’s Adjunct Faculty Roadmap.  The three-week “Jumpstart” provides a guided exploration of the Roadmap’s collection of resources on topics important to teaching at the college level, including helpful links containing examples and implementation tips, expert advice, journal articles, and supporting evidence of best teaching practices.  Opportunities for reflection and colleague interaction will be included through a weekly discussion board prompt.

 

This is a three week long, scheduled, modular professional development opportunity; completers will earn a certificate.
