The RadfordEducation Channel content is authored by graduate students as part of their coursework with Dr. Matt Dunleavy in the RU College of Education and Human Development. The objective of this channel is to provide educational technology tutorials to teachers in an easy to follow format. Each video will be less than 5 minutes and will provide a good foundation of skills upon which the teachers can build by watching subsequent videos. By watching the videos in sequence, teachers should be able to progress from the most basic skills to the most advanced for each application of technology covered on this channel.
The Teaching Learning Center at Otis College of Art and Design is experimenting with creating YouTube and iTunesU videos to help teach skills for our freshmen in particular.
Our most recent one features an art history professor discussing some of the criteria useful in determining whether the information found in periodicals is scholarly, popular, or professional. Although not really scripted, she has worked closely with me for years on teaching info lit skills to students in the first year required art history course. She spoke extemporaneously for 55 minutes and we edited it down to 10.
The Teaching Learning Center has also assisted some of the Foundation Department faculty in creating learning objects.
