June Webinar: In the Kitchen, Branching With Arley Cruthers

Our next Cooking with H5P and Pressbooks webinar is Thursday, June 24 at 9:00 am PT (check for your local time).

Joining us in the kitchen this month is Arley Cruthers, Applied Communications Instructor and Open Education Teaching Fellow at Kwantlan Polytechnic University. We hope to learn more about Arley’s creative ideas for teaching and communicating branching scenario style, and what it takes to (and why) build these  experiences in H5P. And maybe Arley will share how this ties into writing novels! Who knows where this show will branch.

The archive of this session and relevant links/discussions from the chat will be shared here afterwards.

Meet Arley Cruthers

Arley Cruthers is an Applied Communications instructor, writer, and former Paralympian. She got interested in H5P when creating interactive content for her OER textbook Business Writing For Everyone. During the pandemic, she started using H5P’s branching scenario tool to create “very boring Choose Your Own Adventures” that recreated pre-pandemic days that were boring at the time, but that she missed. This one is about a business trip. This led her to do a Choose Your Own Adventure keynote for BC Campus’ Studio 20 event. Currently, Arley is attempting to write a Choose Your Own Adventure memoir, and is thinking through how the branching format makes space for her neurodivergent storytelling style.

Because it is H5P we can share Arley’s Choose Your Own Adventure keynote here!

This event is free and open. To ensure we have an inclusive and welcoming environment for all, we’ve added registration to our webinars. Please note that it will close two hours before the event.

This notice is to inform you that this session will be recorded, archived, and made available publicly on BCcampus.ca. By participating in this session, you acknowledge that your participation in this session will be recorded and the recording will be made available openly.
