        • FULL SPEECH - Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez addresses students on his upcoming new cable channel "El Rey"


          from Moody College of Communication / Added

          College of Communication and Department of Radio-Television-Film alumnus Robert Rodriguez visited campus on May 2 to host a conversation with students and inspire what he called, “the next generation of innovators.” Charles Ramirez-Berg, a university distinguished teaching professor in the RTF program, arranged the event in conjunction with the Center for Mexican-American Studies under the title, “The Future of Latino Images in Film and Media.” Rodriguez, founder of Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, said that many of his innovations ushered original trends into the Hollywood mainstream. These included the push and acceptance of independent films in the 1990s, the rise and explosion of digital film around the new millennium, and the profitable return of the 3-D genre in the 2000s. A large portion of Rodriguez’s lecture centered on the filmmaker’s new cable channel “El Rey,” slated to premiere in 2013 on Comcast, the nation’s largest cable provider. When it airs, shows will be spoken in English but tailored to Latino audiences. Rodriguez also said he wants the programming to be so good that the network attracts all audiences, and that "El Rey" is currently accepting pitches.

This talk represents a bridge between research on learning and the practice of teaching. It introduces seven principles for “How Learning Works,” distilled from research in cognitive, developmental, and social psychology, education, and diversity studies. Faculty in many different contexts have found that these principles apply to their teaching – across disciplines, across student levels, and across cultures. Participants in the session will have multiple opportunities to discuss how the principles apply and can be leveraged in the courses they teach.
