Digital Media Show and Tell

Effective Use of Media in Course Structure and Assignments

Media is everywhere, yet faculty struggle with effective use of digital media in higher education. Blogs, wikis, and audio essays offer opportunities to not only present data in new ways, but also foster improved sharing between faculty and students. What are the best practices when seeking to incorporate media into course structure and assignments? This session will introduce participants to a variety of digital technologies as well as ways to incorporate digital media into their course structure and assignments.

After attending this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify key digital media applications and possible implications for teaching
  • Identify practical classroom applications for a range of digital media tools
