September 26, 2018 | Using Video to Teach and Reach: Making Your Course Content Work for Instruction and Influence

Presented by Jill Schiefelbein, Owner of The Dynamic Communicator

Jill Schiefelbein, owner of The Dynamic Communicator, will open the new 2018-2019 academic year’s Campus Conversations with a live web-cast presentation, Influence in the Classroom and Beyond: Using Livestreaming and Video to Engage Students, Empower Faculty and Expand Expertise, at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

Classroom video started as recorded lectures, then morphed into searchable lectures or dividing lectures into chunks. But by thinking about video a little differently—in terms of microlectures, series, and challenge videos—you’ll not only better engage your students but also make a bigger impact beyond the classroom.

In the academic world, your credentials matter. But if you’re trying to attract grants and research funding, having a visible presence outside the academy is important. This workshop will help you understand how to create engaging video content that impacts your exposure and can lead to grant and funding opportunities, publicity, and a broader dissemination of your knowledge.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • The reasons why having a visible and credible presence outside of the academy is important
  • Five different ways of using video to increase credibility, exposure, and engagement for you, your academic unit, and/or your research
  • Understand the pros and cons of multiple video distribution methods/channels
  • What’s the best place to publish video content for exposure?

Important: An email will be sent prior to the event with webcast information.
