Digital Media: Crafting a Message for Video

Are you interested in creating video for your teaching or research? Do you find yourself wondering, where or how to begin? In this workshop you will tackle that step in-between identifying and producing an idea for video. Borrowing from a design thinking framework, you will collaborate with experts and peers on ideating a plan for communicating a digital story with video. You will be introduced to guiding concepts in media design and learning design, then see how to make them work with your pedagogical practice. During the working part of this session, you will be supported in a pre-production conceptualization process that will serve as the basis for producing an educational video.

Please note that this workshop will call for the use of Adobe Premiere Rush. Prior to the workshop, please be sure that you have secured your free access to Adobe Creative Cloud through GWIT, and that you have downloaded and installed Adobe Premiere Rush. Additionally, while registration is not required for this workshop, you are highly encouraged to reach out to Jason Torres, Director of Strategic Digital Learning Initiatives prior to the event to gain access to the workshop website and potentially speak about any specific interests you may have.
