Dr. Larry Lesser visited Academic Technologies and shared his experiences as a Professor in Mathematical Sciences and discusses how he engages and motivates his students by showing short videos of demonstrations or on-location for real-life context to explain/demonstrate concepts. His approach to multimedia is active and goes beyond what some might do with a static PowerPoint slide or sketch on the board.
