Images, graphics, videos and other visual elements have the potential to add powerful appeal to your course. Good visual design can also enhance your students’ comprehension of course materials. This June, we’re offering two mini “bootcamps” to help you incorporate images and videos into your courses in meaningful ways.

Using Images to Improve Learning
June 12-13, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Where do you find images and graphics? What are the guidelines about using them? And how can you create or modify images and graphics to suit your needs better? If you want to know more about all of these topics, come to our imaging “bootcamp.”

Over two days, we will review pedagogically-sound practices and design recommendations, work on image editing skills, and explore creative ideas for image/graphic use in your class. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to devise when and what kind of images and visuals to use to strengthen your message.

Making Video that Matters
June 25-27, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Video is an effective tool to incorporate into your classroom – whether it’s in a face-to-face or online setting. Videos can enhance your students’ comprehension of the course materials and improve engagement.

In this three day “bootcamp,” we will review the video tools and services that exist within the university, as well as pedagogically-sound practices and design recommendations to help you create effective educational videos.
