The Graduate Multimedia Fellows Seminar is a new Teaching Certificate course offered at the Bok Center with the support of the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching.
Over the course of the spring semester, the course will train graduate students in the theories, research, and skills necessary to design and evaluate multimedia assignments. Fellows will read recent education research and case-studies in multimedia teaching and learning, receive training in relevant media and technology, and hear from experienced faculty and multimedia practitioners. Relying on the resources and practice offered by the seminar, fellows will implement their own multimedia-centered classroom interventions or prepare their own case studies of courses that already use multimedia assignments. Together, fellows will generate and compile resources that will support multimedia pedagogies within the Harvard community. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a $500 stipend.
The seminar will meet Wednesdays, 2-4pm, at the Bok Center, starting February 6, 2013.
