A Path to More Engaging Educational Video Content with Ken Hanson

Thursday, June 18, 2020 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Have an “Ah-Ha!” moment with the UCF College of Arts and Humanities this summer!

In a series of short presentations and Q&A sessions, faculty members share pieces of their research findings and teaching methods to provide session participants with new insights into the arts and humanities. Every session will include at least one “Ah-ha!” moment and one actionable take-away. The presentations will be 30 minutes, with 15 minutes for Q&A.

Dr. Kenneth L. Hanson, associate professor and director of the UCF Judaic Studies program, had a vision for creating video content that could be more entertaining, engaging, and memorable than a typical lecture-capture experience. Working with UCF’s Center for Distributed Learning’s TV studio, he changed the way his online Judaic Studies courses are delivered and turned traditional classroom lectures into creative television experiences. Armed with the tools to create our own “History Channel,” and with a little editing magic, a brave new world of remote learning can be superior to anything we’ve done in the musty lecture halls of the past. Let’s seize the day as we create the educational future.

REGISTER IN ADVANCE! Registration and login to Zoom required.
