Construction is nearly complete on the Washington University School of Medicine Instructional Design Studio, located on the lower level of Becker Library. The seven-hundred square foot space includes a sound-proof video-recording studio which supports filming using lightboard and greenscreen technologies. It also houses a recording booth for supported or independent screencast recording, along with a conference area where faculty can collaborate with our new Videographer, Matt Rice, and other education specialists to design video-based education resources.
The studio and its technologies are available to faculty teaching in all School of Medicine programs. With the Gateway Curriculum redesign in full swing a number of MD programs have used the studio and its resources to produce educational video content. Examples include Dr. Tim Yau, who recorded a series of screencast recordings on clinical exam skills for the Practice of Medicine I course. The studio was also used to produce a Campus Safety orientation video for the upcoming Plunge—the MD Program’s first-year orientation. In addition to videos produced in the new studio, educational videos are currently in production all over campus, including a new orientation for the Standardized Patient Center.
