Over 30 employees, making up eight teams, participated in Seneca’s second annual Adobe Creative Jam for Employees. The event was hosted by the Teaching & Learning Centre and held at the CITE Building at Newnham Campus. The day is modelled after the Adobe Creative Jams for Students. All participants started the day with two bootcamps where they learned about two video apps that are available in the : Adobe Spark Video and Adobe Premiere Rush. These are just two of the many apps available to all faculty and students at Seneca, an Adobe Creative Campus. Jason Katsoff from Adobe was the facilitator of the bootcamps.

Jason and Laurel Schollen announced the theme after the bootcamps were completed. This year, the theme was Academic Integrity. The teams were given the next four hours to create their video that would be part of a lesson on Academic Integrity, used to promote a culture of academic integrity in the classroom. Teams were supported by various members of the Teaching & Learning Centre as they worked through their projects.

At the end of the four hours, everyone gathered back to watch each team present their video. The presentations had to describe the making of their video and how it would be used in a lesson. A panel of judges watched the presentations and decided on first, second, and third place teams. The judges were looking for how well the video delivered the theme idea, the content and design, how they addressed their learning outcomes, and the uniqueness and impact of the concept on the audience. The judging was difficult as all the videos were so well done and promoted academic integrity from a variety of perspectives. Videos included student scenarios, information on Seneca’s policy, types of academic integrity infractions, and even a video from Seneca’s president!
