Foreword by Renee Hobbs

This book will guide librarians, learning technologists, and their faculty partners in designing assignments for authentic learning and supporting students in multimedia production. 

Reinforcing the ACRL Framework’s calls for information creation in a range of formats, a 2020 LinkedIn survey rated “video production” as a top 10 skill sought by employers. Your library has an opportunity to partner with faculty to foster student-created media, which can be the perfect showcase for students’ ideas, research, subject knowledge, and media literacy skill set development. Building on his work supporting student media projects for more than 400 courses, Spicer walks you through 

  • 5 case studies complete with learning objectives, student feedback, extracurricular views, and more, plus approaches to media creation workshops from four universities;
  • 21 questions to guide assignment development consultations with faculty;
  • an overview of common genres such as documentary, video investigation, and personal narrative, with pointers on when to use them;
  • applying the 7 steps of digital storytelling;
  • topics to cover when presenting the assignment to a class;
  • recommended media creation equipment for circulation;
  • the benefits of sharing student work on streaming platforms;
  • developing effective individualized student media creation support services, either in-person or virtually;
  • ways to showcase student work in online galleries; and
  • examples of the enduring impact of student media projects.
