Microsoft Surface Pro, headset, and stylus

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many faculty have been asked to move their courses online with very short notice.  Last year during the polar vortex I experimented with making lecture videos with PowerPoint.  I have now updated the process again for the videos I am creating this year.  The process is efficient and I think it meets ADA requirements for captions.  The videos are not perfect but they convey the material clearly and are pretty good given the circumstances.

The final results of my dissertation research about affordable and portable laboratory kits were published in Advances in Engineering Education in 2019. The full paper can be accessed from the AEE website.

At WE19 I collaborated with Yanfen Li and Nicole Jackson to facilitate a flipped session on applying for academic jobs.  The slides and additional details from the session are provided here for reference during and after the session.

In 2018, I switched from live in-class presentations of project results to video-recorded presentations.  I surveyed the students about their experience and archived the videos and discussion boards for further analysis.  Overall, the switch to student-produced video presentations was a success.  In 2019, I shared the initial results and assignment design at the 2019 Frontiers in Education conference and the Quad-Pod Consortium Teaching Symposium: Transformative Practices in Teaching & Learning.  The article is available on IEEE Xplore.
