Session Abstract: 

As evaluators, we must always continue to consider new media for presenting our work. Videos are becoming an increasingly popular form of communication. They are a way to present information to an audience that combines spoken word and supportive imagery. They are also useful means for presenting findings and disseminating information about what evaluation is, or aspects of evaluation practice. Are you interested in making a video but do not know where to get started? In this interactive session we will demonstrate how to make a high-quality, low-cost video in less time than you would expect. We will take you step-by-step through a hands-on activity that will go over the key elements of a good video, demonstrate free and low-cost software, have participants create a video storyboard, and produce a short video based on one of the audience member’s storyboard.
