From doing research in Antarctica to mucking out flood-damaged homes in a neighboring town, our students, faculty and staff are engaged in all sorts of compelling activities. To share these stories, we produce and deploy videos featuring people, academic programs and campus events across a range of media outlets. Videos are shown at campus events, featured on the college’s website, e-mailed to prospective students, shared via social media, and uploaded to the college’s You Tube channel.
We also provide educational opportunities for the college’s Mass Communications students, including supporting WIRE TV— the student-run TV station that produces several weekly shows airing on campus, cable Channel 23 and online— and working with students to produce “Inside Red Dragon Sports,” featuring interviews with student athletes and coaches.
Television production facilities at the Instructional Resources Center include two digital television studios, non-linear edit suites, audio production labs and a field production truck used to cover campus and community events such as the annual Pit Run road race, regional spelling bee and political debates sponsored by the League of Women Voters. We also provide live web streaming of major campus events, including commencement and Student Research & Creative Activity Day.
Requests for archival videography of departmental events can be directed to David Geasey at ext. 3263. Please provide as much advance notice as possible. All requests will be evaluated based on staffing and institutional priorities. Video cameras can be signed out through the Information Technology Services HelpDesk, and the Teaching, Learning & Technology Center offers support for faculty interested in creating and editing video content.
