GC Online Workshops – Video and Audio Production for Online Teaching

Video and Audio Production for Online Teaching
Co-sponsored by the Public Lab, the Teaching and Learning Center and the GC Digital Initiatives.
Mike Mena, PhD candidate in Anthropology and producer of the award-winning YouTube channel The Social Life of Language, will offer insights, recommendations, and tips and tricks for producing good quality audio and video for online teaching without purchasing expensive equipment or spending hours on editing. The emphasis of this workshop series will be on recording and production but will also include discussion of digital pedagogy.
Modules are standalone but we encourage you to attend Module 1 before attending Modules 2 and/or 3. For more details and to register for individual modules, please follow the links to the PublicsLab website. If you have questions, feel free to contact Stacy Hartman at
