Assigning, Teaching, and Assessing Video Projects

In this workshop, we will focus on getting familiar with different ways to approach video editing as a composing activity in our writing classrooms. While we will predominantly be focusing on how to actually design video assignments and looking at examples, we also discuss best practices for filming and gathering source materials, as well as the rhetorical use of video editing. Students (and instructors) can check out equipment like cameras and tripods from Hicks; here’s the list and hours!
