Two Year/Small College Panels for BEA 2013

by Tilton on January 3, 2013

“Birds of a Feather” (#181998)
Time: Tue, Apr 9 – 4:00pm – 5:15pm
Place: LVH, Conference Room 2

Abstract: “Birds-of-a-Feather” (BOF) sessions are moderated, open discussions on technology-related topics proposed by BEA2013 attendees. A topic may be related to BEA2013 content, or any other technology topic that would be of interest to conference attendees. BOF sessions are not formal presentations with slides or software demonstrations. Instead, the format is casual and open. The BOF sessions are a great opportunity to meet with other attendees that have common interests and exchange ideas. You do not have to be a subject matter expert in order to host a session, although you need to have a genuine interest in the topic. There will be a sign-up sheet near the registration desk if you wish to propose a BOF session.

Participants

Jack/Jane of All Trades: From Specialist to Generalist (#181905)
Time: Sun, Apr 7 – 9:00am – 10:15am
Place: LVH, Conference Room 2

Rationale: What are we being asked to do in our jobs as educators? The unintended consequence of convergence of the business world has led to convergence in the academic world as well. Newspapers are now incorporating broadcast journalism and doing news packages for their web sites. Digital is replacing film. Are we now media generalists instead of media specialists?

Participants
Evan C. Wirig, evan.wirig@gcccd.edu; Grossmont College (Session Organizer)
Troy L. Hunt, troy.hunt@ceu.edu; College of Eastern Utah (Panelist)
Kim A. Zarkin, kzarkin@westminstercollege.edu; Westminster College (Panelist)

Senior Media Thesis Project: Making your student competitive (#182212)
Time: Wed, Apr 10 – 10:30am – 11:45am
Place: LVH, Conference Room 2

Rationale:
There is much discussion about filmmaking techniques but I believe it would be very helpful to see a panel (or a solo workshop if other panelists not available) on an approach leading to successful employment. In my class I invite a headhunter and we conduct mock interviews, we look at other senior thesis projects, we have a session on budgeting, and a session on personalities in Hollywood who are on the move. I will also show samples of high quality student produced work if this is a workshop.

Participants
Michael Gonzales, mike.gonzales@biola.edu; Biola University (Session Organizer)

Show me the math: How did your students create that video? (#182147)
Time: Tue, Apr 9 – 1:00pm – 2:15pm
Place: LVH, Conference Room 5

Rationale: Rather than discuss equipment, theories and your specific ‘techniques’ we use, lets see what we’re doing in the classroom hands on. I use project based learning and each project builds on the previous one. My presentation would look at our final project and how we go through the process of creating a usable piece of media for a client in Video

Participants
Dan Kimbrough, dkimbrou@misericordia.edu; Misericordia University (Session Organizer)
