Proposal Abstract

With the current trend of moving courses online, universities and colleges are seeking ways in which to provide authentic lectures online. One delivery method that has become popular is to use lecture capture systems (LCS). This presentation reports on an ongoing faculty development project at the University of Central Florida aimed to help faculty in all disciplines develop better video presence using LCS to inject a sense of connectivity between students and their instructor. An expert in broadcasting and an expert in instructional technology pedagogy collaborated to lead the faculty development sessions. As a follow-up, the facilitators also conducted several interdisciplinary focus groups to gain insight into faculty perceptions of the efficacy of LCS within their respective disciplines. The current presentation will discuss considerations for best practices in lecturing via LCS based on their research findings from the professional development series and focus groups. Video examples of faculty projects resulting from this project will be shown.
