Workshops

Digital Storytelling: An Introduction to the Pedagogy

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 | ES 2132 | 2 - 3:30 p.m.
Register» | Organizer: Lauren Easterling and Presenter: Kristin Norris

This session will explain digital storytelling, a pedagogical strategy that uses innovative techniques to facilitate the reflection process and promote learning. When students create a digital story, they engage in a reflection process that allows them to demonstrate their learning through words, visuals, and sound. This process results in deep learning, fosters critical thinking, integration of knowledge, and reflective thinking. Constructing a digital story inspires students to dig deeper into their subject, to think more complexly about it, and to communicate what they have learned in a creative way. Participants will understand the implications of this pedagogical strategy for teaching and learning and how to integrate digital storytelling into courses or programs.

Shortly after this session, participants are encouraged to sign up for individual assistance from consultants related to:

  • Developing instructions for an assignment or editing and existing assignment designed for a digital story as the final product
  • Creating effective reflection prompts connected to identified course outcomes
  • Mapping out the course agenda allowing students realistic time for creating a digital story in a given semester
  • Consider strategies for evaluating the student products (e.g., rubric design)

These consultations will be available during the following time frames. See the Individual Consultations event to register.

For those of you participating from a distance, we can provide consultations during these time periods via Adobe Connect with advance notice.

Additionally, participants will have the option to attend a hands-on session on December 11, 2013 from 10am-2:30pm. The purpose of this session is to experience creating a digital story, reflect on the process and the implications for your teaching and your students, and practice assessing digital stories.

Designing ePortfolios

Friday, November 22, 2013 | UL 0106 | 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Register» | Organizer: Amy Powell and Presenters: Lynn Ward, Mark Alexander

Most electronic portfolio platforms, including cloud-based public platforms, provide a selection of general templates to help users produce simple, attractive web sites with few or no programming skills. Some, including the Oncourse Presentations tool, provide an option to “build your own” site. In either case, those preparing ePortfolios can benefit from understanding elementary principles of good web design so that their work is legible, accessible, and simple to navigate. Even students who are technology-literate may need guidance about formats appropriate for different professional contexts. In this workshop, you’ll learn about core design principles to help students enhance the appearance of their ePortfolios. During the hands-on portion of the workshop, you will apply these principles to build your own visual theme in Oncourse Presentations. Presenters will be Lynn Ward, Principal Systems Analyst with UITS, and Mark Alexander, Instructional Technology Consultant with the Center for Teaching and Learning.

CEG funds will be used to support projects in three tracks: General Track, Special Focus in Support of IU Online Track, and the Intergroup Dialogue Initiative Track. Individual faculty members can apply for up to $5,000. Teams of three or more faculty working on three or more courses can apply for a maximum of $15,000 per proposal.
