It's taken me a while but I finally did it.
Many of you ask if I would video my talks to students so you could see what I was doing. Finally last week I was able to set a video camera up in the back of the room and video my ugly mug doing my thing. The quality is not HD but it is easy to hear and get an idea of the presentation. Darlene has already told me I need to add stuff on K2 and Bath Salts. She also said I need to do something with my hands. (I don't know what.) If you have any comments or critique I'd LOVE to hear from you.
I have posted Youtube links to the presentation. I tried uploading one big movie but it is 1 hour long and Youtube rejected it because of the length. With my limited tech skills even with iMovie on my Mac that task of breaking it into pieces was beyond my patience and technical ability. I'm sure glad the computer technical guru reports to me at work. ;-) (When I worked for a living in the shop it was called "government work.")
The movie was broken up into 10 minute sections. On the Youtube description I tried to give a short descriptor for each section. Maybe it was the camera but the students didn't comment during the talk but after it was over and the camera was off some very good learning took place by all.
