Teaching Stories

When we work on a successful project with faculty, we love to share what they did and how it worked. That helps others replicate their success. On this page, we will highlight some of these teaching stories and include details about their projects.

Student Stories with Adobe Spark Video | Spring 2017

After participating in the Narrative Techniques Study, Barbara Barrett M.S.Ed., a lecturer in the Intensive English Program, transformed a traditional, formative presentation assignment in her course, 'Level 4 Oral Communication' (IEP142) into a student generated media assignment. Through developing and sharing personal narratives using Adobe Spark VideoESL students had the opportunity to explore, correct their errors and receive valuable feedback to prepare for a high-stakes academic speech.
