Beyond the Paper: Intro to Digital Options for Class Projects Online
The class paper is a traditional way to assess whether students understand course content. This traditional mode of assessment can often cause more stress and anxiety and even discourage students from learning the subject matter. Alternative digital projects let students demonstrate their mastery of the class subject, while also giving them a chance to find joy and creativity in creation. Digital Scholarship Librarian Natalia Estrada will introduce faculty to tools and practices such as digital exhibits, game creation, and podcasting, as well as how partnering with the UB Libraries can help in planning these projects.
Presenter: Natalia Estrada, UB Libraries
Facilitator: Jocelyn Swick-Jemison
