Office of Education Instructional Design Studio
August 1, 2019
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.
