Creating DIY Multimedia to Enhance Learning

Creating DIY Multimedia to Enhance Learning is a 4-week online, asynchronous course that provides faculty with the training needed to produce quality academic media content from the comfort of your home or office. Producing effective, engaging, and high quality multimedia content for your courses does not have to be done in a professional studio! The cohort experience allows for a rich exchange of ideas and practices between faculty peers across the university.

Dates and registration for our next cohort will be announced soon!
