To the incoming class of 2018 — welcome. The next four years will shape your lives in ways big and small, and introduce ideas you’ll carry with you for the rest of your lives.
As you take your first steps on campus this year, you’ll be joining in the tradition of thousands — perhaps millions — of alumni who’ve gone before you. Yet as you join in that history in your lecture halls and your classrooms, know too that you’ll likely be among the first to take part in a new model of learning — where the philosophy of blended learning makes new use of technology to extend lessons and lectures through time and space.
With pedagogical revolutions like lecture capture, MOOCs, flipped classrooms, student video, and dozens of others, your teachers are adapting the classroom and enhancing the learning experience like never before. So while your seat in Angell Hall Auditorium C may have been home to many before you, it’s never before seen a lecture like those you will.
Video is changing the way we teach, learn, and share ideas — from the classroom right on to the conference room. This week we saw more educational and entertaining recordings among the latest presentations shared online with the Panopto video platform.
And in the spirit of passing it on, these are just a few of the ideas shared this week with Panopto’s presentation recording software.
Jane Cooper, Director of Communications and Brand with UNICEF UK joins the University of Birmingham’s Business Management English professional program, to deliver this guest recorded lecture on the work of UNICEF and its organizational goals and values. Cooper connects her organization’s exceptionally important mission with practical details of how it gets work done, and provides an informative look into corporate social responsibility.
Millennials are famous for their addiction to texting, sometimes even foregoing email completely in favor of text messages. But that doesn’t mean teachers can’t still reach out — join the staff at Western Governors University for a quick social learning session with this best practice tip on how to send text messages via email.
The daguerreotype was the first photographic process to come into widespread use. Join Professor Walter Metz for this recorded lecture on the history of the medium, how it came to be, and the impact it had on society both then and now.
Today bioterrorism and emergency preparedness are serious prevention and planning considerations for organizations of almost every size, location, and industry. No workforce, however, may be so critical in an emergency situation than those of the healthcare industry. Join Danielle Lisiecki, a registered nurse, for her review of what preparedness really requires for RNs, and how to foster a safe and effective care environment should disaster strike.
