DOLCE - June 3, 2022 - Faculty presentations on The Article 26 Backpack™ and Methods on Adapting Textbook Content to Video Lectures
From Andy Jones
Please enjoy this DOLCE, from June 3rd, about The Article 26 Backpack and the production of video lectures.
Keith David Watenpaugh spoke about The Article 26 Backpack: The Universal Human Rights Tool for Academic Mobility. The Article 26 Backpack provides a means and location for students and young people to electronically store documents that they wish to share with schools or employers. The Backpack is currently offered to students affected by war, economic conditions, and other similar hardships. Listen in on this important project, made all the more relevant by this year’s conflicts in Europe and elsewhere. We also discussed ways that all our students can seek to “capture” the work they do in our classes so that they can share that work with future academic and work audiences. Professor Watenpaugh is the founding director of the Human Rights Studies Program, the first academic unit of its kind in the University of California system.
We were also joined at Friday's DOLCE by James Carey, Distinguished Professor of Entomology and senior scholar in the Center for the Economics and Demography of Aging at UC Berkeley. A longtime leader in innovative and effective teaching with video, Professor Carey spoke about the ambitious process of converting a physical biodemography textbook into a video guidebook that takes full advantage of Carey’s expertise as an asynchronous speaker and classroom leader. All of us learned important lessons about effective teaching with video from Professor Carey’s remarks.
