Supporting Video Project at Dartmouth - 0 views

  •  
    Dartmouth faculty in diverse departments including Government, Art History, Arabic, Writing, Native American Studies and Women Studies were excited to assign video projects and wanted to give students a more active and engaged learning experience. However, the faculty did not have a clear understanding of the processes involved to support such a project or how to integrate this type of assignment into the curriculum. To insure success, we needed to develop a more ambitious, comprehensive and seamless support services between curricular computing, the library's media center, and the peer-tutoring center. This session will illustrate how we've "de-silotized" the pedagogical and technical support and share students' feedback about their experiences.

It is a general right that applies even in situations where the law provides no specific authorization for the use in question-as it does for certain narrowly defined classroom activities.

  •  
    Ideas are powerful, especially when they have become beliefs and have been unquestioned for generations. Three in particular may be standing in the way of more faculty using our new learning tools in enlightened ways.

    Assuming learning is about acquiring content is a distortion of reality. Learning is about learning how to learn. It is a social process: For young people the social process must be tangible, present, and immediate; for more advanced learners, the social context is internalized but still indispensable.

Bryant University Takes On-Demand Approach to Multimedia Delivery - 0 views

  •  
    Before the VBrick system was in place, according to Daniel Greene, Bryant's media production specialist, professors had to physically visit the library, select a video, download it to a portable media such as disk or tape, and carry it to class.
