Two Workshops – “Teaching with Media” and “Streaming Media Resources"


    The University of Delaware Library will offer two separate workshops, “Teaching with Media: Instructional Media Resources for Instructors” and “Now Showing in the Library: Streaming Media Resources.”

“Teaching with Media – Instructional Media Resources for Instructors”

    On Tuesday, February 10, 2009, “Teaching with Media: Instructional Media Resources for Instructors” will be an hour-long overview of film and video resources and services focused on classroom instructional support and research. These questions will be addressed: How can more media be incorporated into teaching?; what films and videos are available for class viewing?; and how can videos be checked out? The workshop will be offered on from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. to University of Delaware instructors. Participants should meet at the Instructional Media Collection Department desk, on the Lower Level of the Morris Library.

    The session will begin with a tour of the Instructional Media Collection Department facilities, which include viewing carrels, a Viewing Room, the collections area, and the Media Research Room. Participants will be shown how to search the Media Collection in DELCAT and will be given an online tour of the Instructional Media website.

    The session will be small, registration is required. If these dates and times are not convenient or if the session is full, please contact Meghann Matwichuk at [] to set up an individual consultation.

“Now Showing in the Library: Streaming Media Resources”

    On Thursday, February 12, 2009, the workshop“Now Showing in the Library: Streaming Media Resources” will be an hour-long overview that will illustrate how faculty and instructors can find streaming media specific to their course goals and how the resources can be incorporated into their curricula. Media producers, motion picture archives, and multimedia search engines now provide greater access to streaming media programming via the Web than ever before. While many presentation materials have restricted use, there is a wealth of materials that can be tapped freely and legally. The emphasis for this session will be to survey and demonstrate streaming media resources ranging from a licensed streaming media database provided by the University of Delaware Library for UD access called Theatre in Video from Alexander Street Press, to the many free streaming media resources on the Web.

    The session will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in the Instructional Media Collection Department Viewing Room on the Lower Level of the Morris Library and open to University of Delaware students, faculty, and staff. Seating is limited and registration is required.
