The annual Teaching & Learning Workshop gives faculty and staff the opportunity learn about the studio and discover easy steps to improve their own videos. Participants spent the morning with our team learning the basics of video production. In the afternoon participants had the opportunity to put their new skills to the test by dividing into groups and producing short videos.
