While Khan Academy attracted the attention of millions by producing thousands of video lessons, intended to flip the traditional classroom and homework model, the site’s videos and educational materials have been criticized for their lack of pedagogical content knowledge. Meanwhile, many professional educators would welcome the opportunity to create their own educational videos and interactive lessons that are more reflective of their training and appropriate for their particular classroom or educational objectives. This hands-on seminar will share some simple tools for creating digital educational materials for K12 and higher education settings.
Seminar Time and Location: Thursday, October 16, 2-3pm in CERAS 302
