The EMP program is designed to support faculty members who are interested in being better media creators, enhance their learners experiences with effective resources, and distribute media in ways that work for both faculty and learner.

 

The EdMedia Protégé (EMP) program will improve your capacity to design and deliver media assets – such as infographics, video, graphic organizers, etc. - as an embedded part of teaching and learning. In the first three weeks of the program faculty will work together to better understand how to effectively embed media in activity and assessment, and throughout the remaining time in the program faculty receive one-on-one support from media and learning developers to design media for learning, and develop assets using common tools and techniques. The program will wrap up with a showcase that celebrates the works of EMP participants.

 To register: Follow the directions provided on the program homepage @ https://www.lakeheadu.ca/teaching-commons/pedagogy-toolkit/resourcing-learning-with-content-media/educational-media-protege-program

Application Deadline:  October 3rd. 

Program Start date: October 11th
