(ONLINE) Module 1: Crash Course in Video and Audio Production for Online Teaching


Date(s) - 05/26/2020
11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Co-sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Center and GC Digital Initiatives.

We have closed online registration for Tuesday’s session, however, if you would still like to register, please email publicslab@gc.cuny.edu.

Module 1 will take a “crash course” approach to audio/video production, or, how to produce a basic video on a laptop and/or phone. Serving as the first in a series of workshops on online teaching, this module will focus on:

  • theoretical approaches to the idea of ‘quality’ media;
  • clearing up misconceptions about what must be prioritized;
  • the technology needed to create audio/video; and
  • the top 5 things to do and top 5 things not to do.

The emphasis of this workshop series will be on recording and production, but will also include discussion of digital pedagogy.

For a deeper dive into audio, please register for Module 2. For a deeper dive into video, please register for Module 3. Participants who attend at least 2 out of the 3 workshops in this series will be able to join a fourth and final workshop on Monday, 1 June 2020 to get individual feedback on materials that they have created.

Please reserve your spot by booking below! Zoom details will be sent closer to the date of the workshop.

Mike Mena is a PhD student in Linguistic Anthropology at the Graduate Center and focuses on how ideologies of race and language converge in ways that reproduce hierarchical arrangements and income inequality.  He is currently conceptualizing a longitudinal ethnographic project on the neoliberalization of higher education in the United States.  In 2019, Mena’s YouTube channel, The Social Life of Language, was recognized with the Society for Linguistic Anthropology’s “Public Outreach and Community Service Award.”  The Social Life of Language continues to receive national and international recognition for its multi-modal pedagogical approach and as intellectually informed public activism.
