Please bring your own device (with webcam capability): tablet, smart phone, laptop, or camera with video functionality.

Using videos in teaching is not new. What is the new is the ease of making and delivering videos, and the research on multimedia learning being an effective learning and teaching tool, including the powerful cognitive and emotional impact they can provide.

The workshop will walk you through best practice in making vodcasts (videos). The aim is to build skills and confidence in using webcam and handheld video technologies for making short L&T videos.

By the end of the workshop you should be able to make a quick video using webcam and handheld devices for your teaching.

This workshop builds on the previous podcasting workshop held in November 2014, and will be followed by another workshop on 24th February ‘Introduction to Editing Videos’.

Please register by Monday 16th February
