NSF 2015 Teaching and Learning Video Showcase

May 11-15, 2015

The NSF 2015 Teaching and Learning Video Showcase held May 11-15 was a fabulous collaborative effort of seven NSF resource centers that featured 112 presentations and reached more than 22,000 unique visitors from 146 countries. Congratulations to the 6 cyberlearning-themed videos, below, that were highly recognized. There many near ties, and many more exemplary videos that reached a large public audience and broadly disseminated innovative work. Thank you for helping make it happen!

Original Call for Participation

This online event will showcase cutting-edge NSF-funded work to improve teaching and learning. Participants will share compelling designs and findings in a web showcase, which will both expand your research and help you engage others around your work. Colleagues affiliated with CIRCL, CADRE, CAISE, CS10Kcommunity, MSPnet, STELAR, and ARC communities are invited to join the event to view, discuss, and comment on each others’ work.

Presenters submit and present a 3-minute video to be shared in the week-long showcase. Videos should showcase your intervention, innovation, and/or research. Your video should address potential impact, promise, and challenges.

During this event, CIRCL and the other resource centers will attract a large audience to your work and also supply facilitators to create a constructive online dialogue around the videos. Viewers will vote on the videos they find most compelling, and those that win the most votes will receive recognition online and will be broadly recognized throughout the NSF and STEM Ed communities. All videos and discussions will be archived for future access.

Registation to present a video is now closed.

As this is the first such cross-resource center video showcase event, we are limiting it to 100 video presentations — apply early!

Facilitators from each resource center will select a few videos that exhibit extraordinary creativity in the use of video to share innovative work. In addition, all visitors to the event will be asked to select those videos that they find most compelling. Those with the greatest number of public votes will also receive recognition online. Those presentations that are selected by facilitators and by the public will be broadly recognized throughout the NSF and STEM Ed communities.
