REMINDER!  SFDN 1st Webinar October 10 from 11h to 12h

 Series 2017/2018 – The board is pleased to launch a new way for members to connect and exchange practices with one-hour webinars that explore topics of interest to the SFDN community.  Please join us for these online sessions and if you are interested in hosting a session, please also let us know.  We look forward to your participation and feedback.

Animated videos can be used to enhance traditional teaching and learning activities, adding a creative element to introductions, concept overviews, and assessment.  In this webinar, we will briefly look at the opportunities for the pedagogical uses of animated videos from a faculty member viewpoint and also from a learner viewpoint.  Then we will explore GoAnimate, one digital tool to create animated videos, focusing on real-world examples and application.  If you are not familiar with animated videos, click here to see a sample.  The webinar will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 from 11h00 – 12h00Please sign up for the webinar using this link.  Further details and instructions for accessing the online session will be sent after registration.  Please contact Rachel Plews with any questions –


More information about our second session on active teaching  will be shared shortly.
