As part of the Texas Language Center's New Media / New Materials Conference, Dr. Thomas Garza, Director of the Texas Language Center and Associate Professor of Slavic and Eurasian Studies, presents:
“On Media and Messaging: Incorporating Video and Social Networking into Language and Culture Classes”
While video has long been a staple of language classes, effective exploitation of these materials remains elusive. This workshop will demonstrate effective ways of using video toward proficiency-based objectives. Ways to use social networking media, such as Twitter, to enhance in-class video use will also be shown.
