Event: Engaging Students Through Technology Symposium Year: 2010 Summary: We live today in a state of 'continuous partial attention'. Instant access to people and information can both engage and distract us. New tools break down classroom boundaries and change the nature of college education. The 2010 Engaging Students Through Technology Symposium explores the creative ways faculty are integrating technologies into teaching, the challenges they face, and the disruptive nature of mobile technologies in lecture contexts. In this video Regina Austin discusses student-created video projects. Her students create documentary, appeal and clemency videos as part of their legal studies. Regina Austin L'73, William A. Schnader Professor of Law, Penn Law School, directs the Documentaries and the Law project and is one of five Penn faculty profiled in the Nurturing Student Creativity with Video Projects ELIXR MERLOT module for faculty development.
