Easy as one-two-three!

Are you considering creating a multimedia piece for The Collection? We want to make it as easy on you as possible. Follow these steps to prepare, record and submit your contribution! All contributors will be automatically entered into a draw for a gift card.

Step 1: Pick your tool

Consider the following to determine the best tool to communicate your strategy:

  • Use something you are familiar with. Quicktime, Screencast-o-matic, voice over PowerPoint, it’s up to you. Or, if you want to invest some time learning a new tool, feel free.
  • Be as creative as you like! You can do it interview style with a friend, include images or other video, have flash cards, etc. Or keep it simple – record a quick video on your phone.
  • File requirements:
    • Audio: MP3
    • Video: MP4, AVI, MKV, MOV

Step 2: Prepare and record your submission

Your video/audio recording should include the following:

  • Tell us about the assessment:
    • What kind of assessment was it? (Ex: a group project, written assignment, presentation, etc.)
    • What made this assessment experience stand out as your favourite? (Ex: Was the process different? The grading? The type of assessment? Being able to work with other students?)
    • What were the benefits and/or challenges of the assessment?
    • Do you have any suggestions on how it could have been improved?
    • Anything else you want to share!
  • What is the overall takeaway or message that you’d like us to know about your experience with this assessment?
  • Choose what you want the world to know about you. You don’t have to include your name (unless you want to) but you can mention what you’re studying, and a little about your personal and/or educational background, if you’d like.

Other considerations:

  • Keep it to one assessment experience. If you have more than one, submit more! Also remember that additional submissions can be in a different format (e.g. audio, video).
  • Keep it positive and professional. Even if you’re talking about some challenges you may have had, try to maintain a positive tone. We want to hear about how we can improve! Be mindful of your message and don’t share anything you aren’t comfortable with others knowing.
  • Keep it simple. The purpose of The Collection is provide bite-sized tips for teachers to consider. And we hope this makes it easier for you to craft your submission, too!
  • Keep it private. Don’t mention any specific names of teachers, courses, etc. or anything else that could identify you or your teachers.
