Terry J. Grieb
Associate Professor of Instructional Media and Assistant Director of Media Services
After earning his first graduate degree, Terry Grieb taught history, civics, government, law education, and other social studies, collecting 12 years of classroom experience. During this time, he grew to appreciate the role of instructional media -- especially recordings and projected visuals -- in effective teaching. Not surprisingly, he went on to earn a second master's degree in educational media.
Building on his experience as a classroom teacher, Terry has spent his years at Stetson University advancing the use of educational media in the school's classrooms. He introduced widespread video playbacks in classrooms, satellite downlinks, large-screen video projection, expanded videography services, digital nonlinear video editing, computerized equipment scheduling, and the library's first desktop computer (for a film database).
He also developed his department's first Web page and oversaw the building of Stetson's first Instructional Media Center. During this time, he has witnessed many developments in what instructors can employ to make their classes more interesting and more effective. Despite the many changes in forms of media -- from16mm films to YouTube -- one factor is unchanged: the power of media to positively affect learning. Terry's goal always has been to identify, evaluate, select, and promote the use of the best of these new ideas and forms of media.
