Their first session, titled "Evaluating Group Video Projects in Relation to University of Minnesota Student Learning Outcomes," described a group capstone assignment involving the production of a short video on healthy eating and provided evidence on the effectiveness of that assignment in relation to student learning outcomes. Jensen also delivered a second presentation, titled "iPads for All: Innovation and Application in a Learning Community," which provided a preliminary report on the use of iPads and students' responses to them in a learning community featuring a public speaking class and a general biology course.
