Workshop #W57
CE Offered: BACB
How to Prepare Video Lectures for On-Line Instruction of Behavior Analysis
Friday, May 28, 2010
6:00 PM–9:00 PM
Travis C/D (Grand Hyatt)
Area: TBA/EDC; Domain: Applied Behavior Analysis
CE Instructor: Alissa Greenberg, M.A.
DANA R. REINECKE (Room to Grow)
Description: As more on-line instruction becomes available, behavior analysts should learn new tools for the teaching of behavior analysis in this medium. This workshop will teach participants how to create lectures to transmit online for distance education. We will teach participants to capture a slide presentation with or without video, and turn this presentation into a QuickTime movie file or other format allowing near-universal access by viewers. For users of Windows-based computers, we will teach how to use the software program Camtasia. For those with Apple computers, we will teach how to use the software program ScreenFlow. Neither presenter has financial interests in these software programs. Participants must come with a computer with ScreenFlow or Camtasia installed. This will be a hands-on workshop with participants developing video lectures ready to be posted on the internet. To attend, please bring a computer (either PC or Apple; working microphone and webcam, either Camtasia (for PC) or SScreenFlow (Apple) installed, at least one PowerPoint (or Keynote) slide presentation, at least one short video clip, and at least one photo. To view a brief video demonstration of what you will learn in the workshop, please go to:
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to do the following: 1. use Screenflow or Camtasia to capture a lecture utilizing slides, video, pictures, or any other medium; 2. edit the captured lecture to add callouts, text boxes, and volume control; 3. format the captured lecture into a QuickTime movie format or other viewable format.
Activities: Participants will be given a workbook consisting of task analyses of procedures designed to create these video lectures. Participants will use their own slide presentations, videos, and pictures to first capture a lecture using the program, and then edit it to their satisfaction. There will be no lecturing to the participants—they will work out of their workbooks, prepared by the presenters, to create lecture materials.
Audience: The target audience consists of teachers and staff trainers who have a need to develop lectures and instructional materials to be delivered online or to be archived for repeated use. Minimal understanding of computers is required.
