This semester, the Library has partnered with a team-taught introductory biology course at Spelman College. The purpose of the project is to help students record 10 to 15-minute biology presentations to be submitted as a major course assignment. The class has over 100 students, four sections, and three faculty.
Last week, all four sections of the class met in one of our classrooms to receive library instruction, learn about their assignments, and get a primer on the policy and procedure for using our Presentation Practice suites. Technology Design Studio staff gave students an introduction to Camtasia and discussed how they can reserve one our Presentation Practice suites and how to behave during a recording session. We also gave students group-tours of Room 203 and showed them how to start their recordings and produce the final product.
It’s neat to watch faculty teach students presentation skills and incorporate technology into their classes. We look forward to aiding in our students’ successful presentations and seeing their finished media products.
