Nurturing Student Creativity with Video Projects

The David B. Weigle Information Commons at the Penn Libraries announces
the release of Nurturing Student Creativity with Video Projects, a set
of six digital case stories about University of Pennsylvania faculty and
students, created as part of the national MERLOT ELIXR project. MERLOT
ELIXR supports a digital repository of real-life stories showcasing
successful and innovative teaching strategies and the process of
implementing them. These digital case stories can be used freely in
faculty development programs and also accessed by individual instructors.

Nurturing Student Creativity with Video Projects is online at

Funding for this project has been provided by the Fund for Improvement
of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) through the MERLOT ELIXR national
initiative, managed by the California State University’s Center for
Distributed Learning. More than 30 higher education institutions in 10
states have participated in creating digital case stories online at

Penn’s creation features five faculty who have integrated video project
assignments into the courses they teach. Faculty and students discuss
the assignment details, how the assignment was structured and assessed
and the process by which video creation fit into the pedagogical goals
for the course. The five faculty contributors are: Regina Austin (Penn
Law), Peter Decherney (English and Cinema Studies), Louise Krasniewicz
(Anthropology), Andrew Lamas (Urban Studies) and Jacqui Sadashige
(Center for Programs in Critical Writing).
