Journal Club Spring 2017 Week 4

Screencasts, Week A. In a “flipped” class, students’ initial encounter with material occurs before class, leaving the class session available for active learning that allows closer, guided engagement with the material. Many faculty create “screencast” videos for students to watch as part of that initial dip into the material. In this two-week segment, we will investigate what makes a good screencast and get some practice making them. To prepare, please read:

Also watch and think about the positive and negative aspects of these screencasts:
