An industry perspective on bridging the gap between the classroom and the workplace: marketing yourself to employers

There is a disconnect between the classroom and employer expectations. Oftentimes students with great experience and skills set have great difficulty in finding a job or even receiving an interview. Industry expectations of resumes, cover letters, and interview preparation are constantly changing and differ great from what is commonly advised. Attendees will edit real life examples of cover letters and resumes of candidates who could not receive any interviews, and then review the edits and strategies that ultimately got the students job offers.

Creating and Distributing Video Lectures

Learn how to create engaging videos that will make your students want to learn! We will cover the basics of capturing and editing a video, how and where to upload and host them, and how to integrate them into your online learning system. When you create a course using video, you automatically capture students’ attention through a format that innately engages viewers. Even though creating an introduction video requires more time than a text-based version, it’s worth the investment.

During this presentation the basic software options for both the Mac and PC for video capture will be covered along with hands on video hosting options covering YouTube, Vimeo and other online options. We will also cover how to embed the videos into the popular online learning systems and close captioning option.
