  • 10:30am - 11:45am: Understanding Digital Video
    Instructional videos are a popular way of addressing simple topics, and come in a variety of formats and styles. We’ll compare and contrast a variety of 3-5 minute instructional videos. We’ll look at what qualities good instructional videos share, and how they come across in the examples. This session is open to all FTI participants.
  • 10:30am - 11:45am: Privacy Online
    As we spend time online - personally and professionally - we leave an electronic data trail which can be collected and analyzed by governments, corporations and others. In this session we’ll discuss the implications and precautions end users can take to protect themselves and their privacy online.
  • 10:30am - 11:45am: Classroom of the Present, Classroom of the Future
    The landscape of classroom technology is changing at a rapid pace. Learn more about where we are today, where we’re headed, and how innovations can enhance teaching and learning.
  • 10:30am - 11:45am: Today’s Social Media Landscape
    Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, while still relevant, are now elder statesmen in the social media landscape. Snapchat, Slack, and even a resurgent LinkedIn have been making waves lately. We’ll take a look at the 2016 social media landscape, including what is popular today, how these tools are being used, and where current trends indicate things are headed.
  • 12:45pm - 2:00pm: EdTech “Speed Dating”
    Come and get a look at the latest technology we’re adding to our Service Desk checkout pool and testing this summer. Chose a table and spend 10 minutes experimenting and discussing that topic with an IT professional before you move on to the next table and topic. Get a quick introduction to various technology we have available for checkout, experimentation and just fun. We’ll be discussing Augmented/Virtual Reality, Wearables, Drones, 360 degree video, 3D printing and more!

  • 9:00am - 10:15am: Storyboarding/Scripting
    Participants will work through visualizing the story and coming up with a script for the video. Storyboarding does not require artistry, but can help you think through what different visuals you will want for your final video. Scripting is necessary to ensure all of the elements are gathered prior to putting the video together, and give you a good estimate on timing. This session is geared towards Deep Dive participants, but is open to all. We will have sample projects for those who don’t have a video project in mind but are interested in hands-on experience developing a script.
  • 9:00am - 10:15am: Web Publishing Options for Students & Faculty
    When you’re planning on publishing your own research or student projects online, what comes to mind? There are a number of ways to have a web presence in the L&C environment, each serving a different purpose. In this workshop we’ll discuss your options and help you find the correct tool for your needs.
  • 9:00am - 10:15am: Intro to 3D Modeling
    Now that 3D printing has been reliably established on campus, the next step is to create your own 3D models. Traditional modeling tools like AutoCAD are expensive and have a steep learning curve.  Fortunately for us, there is new, free software that makes modeling more accessible than ever before. In this workshop, we’ll learn about the basic tools for 3D modeling, and start designing our own models. By the end, each participant will have created their own, printable 3D model!
