Theme: Digital by Design: Developing Multimedia Assignments for Your Courses
The Lightning Talks speaker event is a reflection and learning forum where Boston University faculty and invited guests identify areas of challenge and opportunity and share strategies for engaging educational experiences in the in-person environment. The speaker series, co-hosted by the Digital Learning & Innovation Office, the Center for Teaching & Learning, and the BU HUB, is open to BU faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.
Digital content creation is a necessary skill for students and also offers innovative ways for faculty to teach, regardless of their disciplinary contexts. Yet instructors are not always certain where to begin when integrating multimedia assignments (e.g., podcasts, videos, etc.) into classes.
In this Lightning Talk event, faculty discuss multimedia assignments that have worked well for them, both in Hub and other courses, and the benefits and challenges of these projects.
