The human brain processes information in a variety of ways. Some of us can succeed just listening to lectures; others prefer to have visuals; and, still others, hands-on experience.   

If you can tap into multiple forms of processing, you can generate deep learning and long term retention. Use multimedia in your teaching to make sure your students’ brains are maximizing cognitive processing the topics you want them to learn. In this workshop, we will introduce you to some of the research showing the effectiveness of multimedia teaching and key decisions to make when incorporating multimedia in your teaching. 

Part I, 3:00 - 4:30: Introduction. 

Part II, 4:30 - 5:00 Lucas will give a short demonstration of some basic editing you can do using the iMovie app on the iPad and Windows Movie Maker on a Windows-based laptop.  Bring your device if you would like to follow along.
