Student Multimedia Content Production: An Alternative to Conventional Forms of Assessment — Pandeli Glavanis & Ahmad Zorkani
Student-centered teaching and learning is widely accepted as the most effective pedagogy to be used in Higher Education and has gained tremendous popularity over conventional lecture-based teaching. Similarly the rapid development of educational technology has enabled students to engage with learning in a variety of new and creative ways which enable students to acquire and demonstrate a variety of new skills in the process of learning. Producing multimedia assignments, as an alternative to conventional forms of assessment, is one such area where students can enhance their own individual and group learning experiences by creatively producing new content in their courses. This workshop will evaluate such an experience in undergraduate teaching at AUC and discuss lessons learned.

Moving beyond the research paper: Capturing the process of science through digital narratives — Aziza Ellozy & Maha Shawky 
To engage our students with the “process” of science, and to take them beyond the facts and concepts in a ‘Scientific Thinking’ course, we had them create digital narratives about scientific discoveries. This presentation will highlight how the process of researching the topic, creating concept maps and a storyboard, selecting appropriate images and audio components, and weaving these elements together to produce a multimedia narrative encourages students to engage the material in greater depth and with more purpose than reading or writing about it.
 This work was done in collaboration with Hoda Mostafa, Associate Professor of Practice at the American University on Cairo
