This workshop will provide the attendees with a new perspective on the use of screencasting technology for improving student learning and assessment of learning outcomes. The workshop facilitators will model how they are using student-created screencasts as a strategy for engaging learners with course content, both individually and in collaborative groups. Special attention will be given to methods for assessing screencasts to measure student learning. Attendees will be guided through the process of creating screencasts, and develop assignments and assessments for use in their own teaching.
