Keywords:Media Materials, Media Technology, Educational Technology, Emergency Remote Teaching, Emergency eLearning, LIS pedagogy
This paper presents the approach undertaken in teaching the undergraduate course LIS 131: Media Materials and Technology, and its graduate equivalent LIS 264: Media Technology in Library and Information Science during the pandemic. These courses are offered by the School of Library and Information Studies, University of the Philippines Diliman. In the middle of the global pandemic, a quickstart student-content approach was done with the intention of getting the students up and running as quickly as possible, with enough know-how to help them along for tasks and projects associated with school and work. A comprehensive overview for each topic was formulated, only essentials were retained with familiarity and appreciation as the goal, and they were not explicitly meant to lead the students to professional work in media production. The quickstart student-content approach revolved around four main components: a. Concepts; b. Options; c. Demonstration; and d. Challenge.
