Video Narrative Workshop *Pre-Registration Required*

August 10th, 9AM - 4PM  Case-Geyer 560
August 13th, 9AM - 4PM  Case-Geyer 560

Led by Sarah Kunze and Debbie Krahmer
The Library and ITS staff are offering a revised two-day video narrative workshop in August. Many faculty participants from lasts year's workshop went on to assign video narrative projects in their classes this academic year. With our new Digital Learning & Media Center on level 5 of Case library slated to open in the Fall of 2012, we now have dedicated learning spaces for new media, allowing us to offer even better support for students and faculty. 

In order to feel comfortable assigning a video project in a class, our experience has shown that a faculty member must first create their own video project to get a sense of what is involved. This workshop offers an opportunity for this to happen. Learn how to construct a simple video narrative using photos, text, voice recordings, and music. 

During the two-day, hands-on workshop we will cover both the aspects of writing a narrative for video and the technical steps to editing video. 
The goal of the workshop is not to make you a video expert, but rather to give you an appreciation of the process so that you can extend the option to your students as a part of your course assignments.
