  • Facilitator: Jim Mclean George Mason University; Information Technology
  • Facilitator: Susan Campbell George Mason University; Information Technology



**Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a few printed copies of a specific example activity, assignment oràstrategy they use in their classroom related to this topic to share.**
NOTE: You can still join a potluck even if you didnââ¬â¢t bring anything!
Welcome to ITL and this table! àJoin 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.ààNot sure what to talk about?ààHere are some conversation starters:
  • Share a little about yourselves:à

    • 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 theyââ¬â¢re watching, and after theyââ¬â¢ve watched?

  • What additional assignments might help you create the best ââ¬Åreturn on investmentââ¬Â 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?
