On Wednesday, May 29, 2019, Logan Rath (Library), Shari Hardenbrook (LITS), and Dr. Peter Kalenda (Education & Human Development) presented at the SUNY Conference on Instruction & Technology (CIT). Their presentation showcased a Spring 2018 collaboration to support captioning needs in an education course.

The presentation, titled Captioning Virtual Presentations by Students for Students: Supporting a Classmate’s Need, welcomed attendees to come learn how a professor teamed up with an instructional designer and a librarian fluent in technology to require his pre-service teachers to create captioned virtual presentations. The need for captions originated from having a student enrolled in the course who identified as deaf, however, the need became a teachable moment on accessibility for these future teachers. The presentation shared their process, course assessments, the technologies investigated, documentation and their lessons learned in this real-world scenario.

Funding:

Travel for some professors to this conference was made possible by the TeachNY Implementation Fund: Teaching and Learning through Laboratories and Technologies awarded to the Professional Education Unit this academic year.

What is CIT? Established in 1992, the Conference on Instruction & Technology (CIT) is SUNY’s largest and most prominent event on instructional technology in education, providing a forum for faculty, instructional support professionals, and policymakers to present, discuss, and explore innovative avenues for integrating technology into the teaching and learning environment.

CIT is held annually on a SUNY campus. The on-campus environment creates an informal atmosphere of sharing and networking among colleagues. The resultant camaraderie promotes sharing by discipline and across disciplines for faculty from all campus types–university centers, four-year campuses, technology/specialized colleges, and community colleges.
