Online Brown-Bag: Videos 101 - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for Small-Scale to Large-Scale Video Production (Recorded)
Does your institution currently produce videos or are you curious about video production? Videos have a wide-variety of uses from generating excitement about a topic or explaining a concept, to detailing a process, providing professional development, and for marketing, and now this technology has literally been placed in the palm of your hand! This online brown-bag conversation provides more information about the the process behind video production from those partners involved first-hand.
The International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies (IYL 2015) is a global initiative that will highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society. It is an unique opportunity to inspire, educate, and connect on a global scale.
Since 2008, NanoDays activities have been used to engage all types of audiences and families within the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology. When engaging different audiences, such as younger audiences including children ages 3-8, it is important to target your message in a language that is both understandable and engaging for that age group. In this brown-bag, NISE Net partners discuss their experiences working with younger audiences and offer tips for specific NISE Net hands-on activities.
This online brown-bag conversation focused on the International Year of Light! In 2013, the United Nations proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light (IYL). More than 100 organizations from more than 85 countries are participating in IYL. During this conversation we discussed scientific organizations that would make great partners for IYL events, shared light-related activities and videos developed by the NISE Network, and talked about the science behind some of those activities.
Online Brown-Bag: Exhibit Small Talk - Engaging Various Audiences with the Nano Mini-Exhibition (Recorded)
The Nano mini-exhibition was designed to have a very wide reach, with hosts in multiple settings across the United States. Thus, a large part of the development process was dedicated to creating tools to make the exhibition welcoming and accessible to as many people as possible. In this third conversation of the “Exhibits Small Talk” series, we will highlight the resources available from the NISE Net for audience engagement around the Nano mini-exhibition and much more!
Online Brown-Bag: Team-Based Inquiry Stories - NISE Network Partners Share What Works (and What Doesn't!) (Recorded)
Team-Based Inquiry (TBI) is an approach to empowering professionals to get the data they need, when they need it, in order to improve their products and practices and create successful educational experiences. This year, 20 individuals from 10 NISE Network partner institutions participated in a focused professional development cohort where they learned the TBI process and tried it out in their own institutions. This brown bag is the first in a series of online discussions to help partners better understand what TBI is and how it can be used in any institution and for any type of project or question.
