This past spring, the Cedarville University Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) won two bronze Telly awards for its videos “Introduction to Literature: Welcome” and “Tools of the Visual Artist” in the non-broadcast productions general education category.

The Telly Awards, founded in 1979, honors excellence in cable television commercials and non-broadcast video and television programming, and represents the best work created within television and across many video platforms. Telly Award winners include the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies and publishers around the world.

The CTL serves Cedarville’s academic division by promoting innovation and excellence in teaching and learning and providing a variety of consulting, technical, professional development and production services.

Dara Fraley, media designer at the CTL, produced and directed both videos. She also added sound to “Introduction to Literature: Welcome” and edited “Tools of the Visual Artist.”

“I believe that these pieces exemplify industry standard quality,” said Fraley. “Often in education, when one thinks of doing a video, the ideas about what that looks like can vary. The Telly validates our work and our efforts in pushing the videos to levels that exceed expectations.”
