Now isn’t the time.
Now it’s still the lazy days of August. Now it’s still long weekends in the sun. Now it’s still vacations and summer Fridays.
Sure, next week brings September, the third month of the third quarter, when annual budgets are set and classes get back underway.
And sure, come September it will be essential to stand up for your ideas, give voice to what you know, and do everything you can to ensure whatever you’re presenting is attended to. September marks a busy month, and people are often too distracted for text or lectures alone, after all.
That’s why, come September, so many leaders, teachers, trainers, coaches, and communicators will be turning to video — an easy tool that cuts through the clutter to deliver a message that is never skimmed, never half-read.
As more of us are coming to recognize, even if a video is ignored in the present, it can always be replayed with just the click of a button (and without requiring us to repeat ourselves).
Which is why so many teachers now trust video to share recorded lectures and flipped classrooms with their students.
It’s why so many knowledge workers rely on video for social learning, formal training, and all kinds of corporate events and communications.
But all that’s to come. September, after all, isn’t until next week.
This week we saw more and more people taking advantage of the power of video to share ideas, present information, and show how the world works. And in the spirit of passing it on, these are just a few of the ideas shared this week with Panopto’s video presentation software.
Listen in with Professor Erin Albert of Butler University for this in-depth look at entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship as functions of the social enterprise. The classic definition of a social enterprise is one that operates with multiple bottom lines, seeking both profit as well as to help solve humankind’s most pressing social, economic, and/or environmental problems. Often, the innovations of entrepreneurs in these organizations facilitate the breakthroughs needed to make something better possible.
Dr Hassan Fehmi delivers this Grand Rounds lecture on mineral and bone disorder and the role they play in chronic kidney disease. Dr Fehmi shares with the students at the Henry Ford Medical system a complete review of the relationships between these disorders and how they impact kidney function, and then outlines modern treatment guidelines and available therapies for patients.
As universities prepare for students to return, join the Butler University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences for this review of how lecturers, graduate assistants, and other teachers can best engage and motivate students. Professors Darin Ramsey and Tracy Sprunger review three classic theories of classroom motivation techniques, and then describe how to best engage students in lecture hall, small group discussions, and in experiential learning settings.
Finally this week, get smart with Jared Campbell from the Florida Institute of Technology’s Instructional Technology team, as he shows students how to look skeptically at potentially fraudulent emails, and avoid becoming a victim of phishing. It’s a five minute introduction to personal data security that’s well worth your time.
