Video Conferencing in Action: How GW Uses Video in the Classroom
Presented by Randy Shore, Information Systems Analyst
Thursday, December 5th at 11 AM

In this session, Randy Shore from GW will detail his experience in using high definition video conferencing streaming and recording to educate future art therapists and school counselors. In both of these post-undergraduate fields, students must perform a series of counseling and therapy sessions with patient stand-ins, as well as actual clients in need of care. Supervision and critique was traditionally done via VHS video cameras, then DVDs. Ultimately, they made the switch to video conferencing technology, specifically LifeSize UVC Video Center. The system enabled integration with touch panel controllers and the ability to live stream and view recorded sessions immediately. Using video conferencing, both School Counseling and Art Therapy students conduct therapy and counseling sessions in the clinic, and professors and supervisors can watch it live or on recorded playback.

GV Expo 2013 is taking place on December 3rd-5th at Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Register here.
