Proposal for a session in which you offer to teach a skill, either a “hard” skill or a “soft” skill.

Teach Session Proposal – Grading with Screencasting

I’ve used screencasting to respond to my students’ work for the past 3 years, and I’d like to share my experience with other interested educators at all levels.  Screencasting is useful for responding to projects in all sorts of mediums, from essays to websites to multimodal projects.  Students also appreciate it for its multimodal approach and clarity (compared to written feedback).   Interested participants should bring laptops equipped with internal microphones and be willing to sign up for free screencasting software (I’ve used both Jing and Screencast-o-matic).

For anyone who might be interested but isn’t here, I’m attaching the pdf instructions I give to my students about how to use Jing: How to Install and Use Jing for Screencasting
