webcasts and film

I've created a series of short videos on educational techniques at the University of Colorad, and at the Exploratorium, I co-wrote a series of live webcasts. I'm even on YouTube!

 

Clickers: Students and Teachers Speak.

Wrote, directed and produced a series of 8 videos on why to use clickers, research on clickers and interactive engagement, use in upper division courses, and other aspects of effective use of this technology to assist in student learning.

Once and Future Climate.
Webcast 1: The Climate Past

With Dr. Paul Doherty, I help explain how we know what the climate was in the past. In this webcast we look at carbon dioxide and talk about why it helps keep us warm, and I go live to the infrared camera in the museum to demonstrate! This is the first in a series of 3 webcasts about climate change.
