Currently, I’m teaching DH 226, Ethics and Law in Dental Hygiene. The students enjoy the case studies and debating issues in class; it can actually get pretty heated sometimes! Even though they like the interactive part of the class, I’ve found that they have a hard time grasping the three theories of ethics. So, one day I decided to make a video that would simplify the theories for them. It was a big hit!
The video was easy to make. First, I decided on a theme and planned the movie script and story board. I used Paint to draw each slide (they’re stick figures), then imported the images (in order- VERY important!) to Windows MovieMaker. I imported a song for the background, and completed the voiceover with my family. With MovieMaker, edits are easy and you can add credits at the end. It was a fun project, and now I use it every time I teach the class. Take a look at mine and give it a try!
