How to Successfully Launch (& Support) Production-Based A/V Assignments

Digital projects are more than just alternatives to papers or dissertations these days — they are now more than ever becoming a popular choice for students and faculty as a tool for presenting their research. Faculty who want their students to create interactive websites, videos or recordings, or podcasts will learn how to meaningfully adopt production-based assignments by balancing their pedagogical goals with the addition of real-world technological skills to their syllabi. Sometimes even soft skills are learned when forcing students to interact with the world! We will explore as a group the considerations (such as assessment), challenges (keeping the focus of the course on the content), and resources needed (both physical and intangible) to implement this type of coursework, as well as view examples of successful student projects.
