Digital Media: Creating a Space to Inspire

Do you find yourself brainstorming ways to communicate to learners and inspire their communication of ideas? Are there papers, videos, graphics or other media that you want to share with them in a linear and catchy visual story? In this workshop we will work with you to get started creating a custom online space for the purpose of communicating to and inspiring your students with a custom visual story. Borrowing from a design thinking framework, you will collaborate with experts in empathizing with your student’s perspective and kicking-off a visual communications idea to prototype using Adobe Creative Cloud Express. In doing this, you will be introduced to guiding concepts in media and learning design and apply these in ways that compliment your pedagogical practice.

Please note this workshop will call for the use of Adobe Creative Cloud Express on the web. There is no software to download and install. However, please be sure that you have already secured your free access to Adobe Creative Cloud through GWIT. 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.

This workshop is part of the Instructor Communication for Digital Learning series for GW instructors exploring how to use digital media to engage students and meet their course goals. Workshops address the process of working through an idea and setting up a message to be communicated. This series is sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
