FACULTY SHOWCASE - AMAZING RESULTS FROM A FIRST TIME MEDIA PROJECT -- 9/8 from 1-2

The best way to see if something will work is to hear from other faculty who have done it. Join us as Lisa McQuade, from Health and Human Performance, talks about how she implemented a student media project as one of her assignments. The outcome was remarkable and creative. Join us as she talks about the parameters of the assignment, how she prepared her students, and the outcomes of the project. If you are at all hesitant about implementing a project like this in your own class then this session is for you.

Filming and Editing Video on your iPad with iMovie -- 9/10 from 9:30-11
