Can Lecture Capture Make You A Better Professor?

Tuesday, September 21, 2010
10:30 – 11:15 a.m. (
convert to your time zone)

Does the idea of lecture capture make you uncomfortable? Do you fear it will force you to change the way you teach? Or that attendance will drop as students stop coming to class?
Dr. Anne-Marie Lerner thinks you have nothing to fear.

Lerner is a professor at the University of Wisconsin – Platteville and during the spring 2009 semester, she began teaching engineering in a Mediasite-enabled classroom. Three semesters later, she believes lecture capture has made her a better instructor. And today, she’s still teaching synchronously to traditional students in the on-site classroom and asynchronously to non-traditional, distance education students who never come on-campus.

One of the most energetic and compelling instructors in this medium, Lerner recently presented her findings at conferences like Campus Technology and the Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning. Now she’s carving out time for an online chat with you to present what she’s learned and to answer your most pressing questions about getting faculty comfortable with lecture capture.

During this lively discussion, she’ll cover:
  • Tips to overcome barriers to faculty adoption and evangelism
  • Ways to address the comfort level of faculty in adopting lecture capture for both blended and online courses
  • What mainstream media – like late night talk shows and even Sesame Street – can teach instructors about teaching through webcasts
  • How to embrace tablet PCs and in-room videocameras for course instruction, including real-time notation of formulas and calculations
  • Why it is still easy to use student engagement levels, either in class, during office hours or online, to gauge how they will perform

And if you have a question you’d like to make sure she covers, email us before the webinar at
