In this presentation, a team from Digital Commons, a university-wide initiative to support the educational use of digital media, will share best practices developed over three years. They'll discuss strategies on how to integrate simple tools like Flip Video cameras and blogs into effective educational activities. Detailed case studies will be presented, including samples of student work, syllabi, project outlines, and assessment instruments. Examples include a student video assignment in a microeconomics class with over 1,200 students. The presentation will also outline our efforts to improve digital literacy including strategies for researching for a media-based project.
