Here are the images I was able to capture during the IFDS in Seville last week. I figured it was best to post this sooner rather than later because I wanted to acknowledge the amazing people that we (the seminar attendees) worked with during our time in Seville. Thank you to Oscar Ceballos, Carlos Pineda, Miguel Romero, Antonio Perez, Carlos Sanches, Ruben Diaz and Emilio Gonzales Ferrin. I would also like to thank the six ladies with whom I shared and collaborated with during the seminar: Collete, Rebecca, Nancy, Kaitlin, Ellen, and Rylan. Learned so much from you ladies!
Hopefully you have read my previous posts and understand the context of this post. Just in case: I am doing an international professional development seminar in Seville in which I am learning and practicing communication strategies (and using digital media). One of the assignments in the seminar was to record sounds of the city during our stay in Seville. We finally used those sounds today during the production and recording of a radio podcast. It was a two hour preparation time of scripting and sound editing before recording our radio show. I am really impress with the final product!
I have to upload more sounds that I captured this week (they are now updated). I have many more, including interviews and more street sounds. However, I want to share our radio podcast. Big thank you to Radiopolis for letting us use their space to work on the project and their recording studio.
Here is our story, narrative, experience:
IFDS Communication Strategies in Context Summer 2016 Radio Show
As part of the seminar I have a bit of homework and will be sharing (or at least try) to share it every day. The homework consist of audio recordings of sounds, conversations, audio reflections, interviews, and other audio recorded during the next few days in Seville. Each audio recording should be no more than two minutes long.

Thrilled to be in Seville, Spain for another CIEE International Faculty Professional Development Seminar. Thankful for the CIEE Alumni Scholarship which helped sponsor my participation in this seminar. The title of the seminar is “Communication Strategies in Context: Culture Learning and Community Engagement through Digital Tools.” I hope to provide regular updates throughout the week related to the seminar.
Also, as part of the seminar I have a bit of homework and will be sharing (or at least try) to share it every day. The homework consist of audio recordings of sounds, conversations, audio reflections, interviews, and other audio recorded during the next few days in Seville.

Now it is bed time. Buenas noches!

A few weeks ago, I posted a blog about some of the projects that my students are doing in the development of instructional multimedia class. Since my last blog post the students have continued with their projects. We have moved on to the video tutorial and the instructional video. In the video tutorial, they were required to present video instructions to a process (step-by-step guide). On the other hand, in the instructional video the students had to focus on presenting a video about a topic. The instructional video would be an element they could use to explore a topic in detail (nutrition, photography, drinks, etc.)
I was amazed by the level of commitment to their assignments! The topics were very interesting. There was a range of different topics. I must also add that because of the semester schedule they have about two weeks in between submission deadlines for each projects. Here are their projects (with their permission):
They are now working on their final assignments for the multimedia class. At the end of the semester they will have a multimedia portfolio which they can use to enhance the portfolio that they need to submit at the end of the program. I can’t wait to see their final portfolios!
