We’ve released three videos highlighting faculty members who are doing things in teaching and learning that we feel exemplifies our conference theme of “Digital Scholarship.” Renee Borromeo is using video projects to assist her kinesiology students with understanding human motion. Terry Hartman’s student’s are creating Public Service Announcement videos as a way to develop the technology and subject-matter expertise they will need to work in the nutrition field. And, Jeanette Novakovich used the Sparky awards as a means to help students obtain important skills such as understanding copyright, conducting research and, working in teams.

I encourage you to watch these videos and see a sampling of some of the amazing work being across the university using technology to enhance teaching and learning.

Jeanette Novakovich, Lecturer in English

University Park

Jeanette Novakovich

This video describes how Novakovich’s technical and business writing students created videos that they entered in the Sparky Awards video competition. The students became highly motivated by the assignment and learned much more than video production. As they learned about copyright, conducted research using Library resources, and worked in teams, the students absorbed the spirit of the read/write digital culture in which they can participate as information sharers.

Terry Hartman, Instructor in Nutrition

University Park

Terry Hartman

This video describes how students in Hartman’s nutrition education course created public service announcement videos to share information they learned with others. As part of the project, the students developed technology skills recognized as important for nutrition professionals by the American Dietetic Association. Students had fun in this project-based course as they learned effective ways to share information.

Renee Borromeo, Instructor of Physical Therapy

Mont Alto

Renee Borromeo

This video showcases a project in Borromeo’s kinesiology course in which her students are taking their knowledge of anatomy and applying it to human movement. Students are given the requirements of turning in a paper as well as a video at the end of the project. The video portion is essential to understanding exactly what kind of motion the students are seeing as it supplies the visual evidence of what is written in the paper.
