The Pedagogical Advantages of Classroom Media Projects

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The presenters, a First Year Seminar instructor and a librarian, will discuss the pedagogical advantages and limitations of integrating new media-based projects into a college classroom. We have recently shifted our focus from standard one-shot information literacy instruction sessions and traditional research papers to new video production and podcasting assignments. We will go over what has worked over multiple iterations of these media projects, and we'll discuss how to help students effectively integrate and properly attribute source material in these alternative formats, while also attending to concerns of voice and audience. Ultimately, these projects seem more "real" to students and encourage them to see themselves as true information producers and creators.
