This summer, we offered our first ever Image Design for Teaching bootcamp — an all day training over the best practices, policies, accessibility, image resources, copyright, and Photoshop skills needed to create informative and organizational images for teaching. The enrollment requests are plentiful, and we’re offering it again, but in a new format.
This round will be a month long series occurring each Monday at 1:00. The sessions will each allow for some hands-on practice time during which participants can play around with the skills we’ve just covered while having access to support staff from the Office of Distance Education & eLearning. Sessions one through three will build on each other, with each using the skills from the previous one. The fourth session will focus on building images for Carmen and using prefabricated templates, and this one only requires attendance of Session 1 as a prerequisite. Group size for each session is limited to ten seats in order to allow for effective teaching and support as we cover new tools.
Participants who complete the series will takeaway:
- resources on copyright
- resources on fair use
- resources on where to find “good” or nice looking images that are available for use
- slides on image best practices and accessibility that they may share with their department
- a folder of Carmen-fitted Photoshop templates to drag and drop images into
- an entire set of image designing skills that can be used on any Digital Union computer (all have Adobe Photoshop)
