At the Faculty Symposium this past June, Nick Meyer and Bryan Bortz from the media services team presented on how “Meet the Instructor” videos can build a social presence in your course. As IL instructors, we might not be able to interact in person with our students, but these videos can allow students to see us in our element, like they would in an in-person course. Links to the slides of the presentation (which include some information on the process and benefits of these videos) and a highlight reel are below.
