**Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a few printed copies of a specific example activity, assignment or strategy they use in their classroom related to this topic to share.**
NOTE: You can still join a potluck even if you didn’t bring anything!
Welcome to ITL and this table!  Join your fellow Mason instructors to informally discuss this table's topic. At the table, you will find desk copies of related resources (digital versions are available below), and an experienced Mason colleague who has experience and strategies related to this topic.  Not sure what to talk about?  Here are some conversation starters:
  • Share a little about yourselves: 

    • Department

    • Years at Mason

    • Courses you are teaching

    • What excites you about teaching?

  • What brought you to this table?

  • What do you see as the advantage of creating videos for students? Which elements of your course might most and least benefit from being presented in a video version?

  • When you think of students viewing a video, what do you imagine motivates them to do so? What do you hope/expect that students will do while they’re watching, and after they’ve watched?

  • What additional assignments might help you create the best “return on investment” of your creating a video, so that you know student learning benefited from your work: quizzes, discussion board assignments, exam questions?

  • Are you thinking of creating a video with stable information that would remain relevant for four or more semesters? ...a video that would need annual or semesterly updates to remain relevant?

Have an example or resource to share?  Submit through this link and we'll upload it after the conference: Still have questions?  Leave a post it note on the table sign at the end of the Share-a-thon or email your questions to   ADDITIONAL RESOURCES:
