Introduction to Video Editing - Tuesday, February 14

Simple concepts such as storyboarding, writing a script, and camera placement and positioning can make all the difference in the quality of your video. After learning the basics on how to shoot the video, we'll be delving into the editing software and looking at importing, timelines, layers, and transitions, and then further into how to get your video online and into UM Learn.

Serious Play and Gamification in the Classroom - Tuesday, February 28

Gaming is not just something you do in your parents’ basement anymore. Post-secondary teachers are recognizing the potential of using gaming to engage students in sophisticated problem solving. Students tackle problems specific to their discipline and receive instant feedback on the success of their approach. This alternative form of education opens the doors to a much deeper connection between the learner and the application of a wide variety of concepts.

Facilitator: Nathan Greidanus
