Creating Ted Ed Video Lessons

Thu Oct 31, 1:00 - 4:30 PM (-04)
CETL-Technology Lab  

With technology use increasing and attention spans decreasing, interactive video lessons make it easier than ever to get and keep your students’ attention, and increase engagement (Benkada & Moccozet, 2017). Interactive video lessons provide an avenue through which you and your students can engage in more hands-on/active learning, project-based learning, reflective learning, collaborative, and/or self-paced learning, without increasing cognitive load on students (Mayer, 1996; Schwan & Riempp, 2004). With an emphasis on Ted Ed, this workshop will provide you with a hands-on experience in creating interactive video lessons and orient you to the ways in which they can be used to improve student engagement and retention in 21st century teaching and learning.
