Winners of the first 60-second lecture contest were announced at the grand opening of USciences’ new Technology Training Center. Faculty were invited to utilize the Panopto lecture capture software to submit 60-second lectures for fun or for serious consumption.
The entries were judged by a panel of USciences deans with the top prize going to Associate Professor Catherine Bentzley. Fittingly, USciences Executive Director of Academic Technology Dr. Rod Murray, announced the winners via Panopto.
