Course Aims

This course aims to:

  • further develop relevant teachers competences and confidence  when using digital video in language education
  • promote teacher professionalism in evaluating and selecting available video resources, apps and production tools
  • develop participants’ skills related to capturing, adapting and designing video content and developing related learning activities and materials
  • develop participants’ skills in the use and production of video for a range of curriculum objectives, both for f2f classroom contexts and blended learning, including flipping the classroom.

Methodology  
The course activities include demonstrations of useful applications, exemplary materials and teaching practices followed-up with tutor-led presentations and discussions about methodological related topics.
Hands-on activities carried out by participants individually, in pairs and/or small groups include exploring tools,  analyzing video clips and related lesson activities and creating content to be used in participants’ personal practice.
To address the anticipated variety in participants’ interests and needs (in terms of tools, pedagogical approach, target groups and individual technology skills level) most tasks are designed in such a way that they can lead to differentiated relevant learning experiences and outcomes.
To provide flexible access to course related tasks and resources a the course learning management system (LMS) will be used. After course access to the LMS is offered to promote follow-up communication and collaborative learning when exchanging experiences with redesigned local practice samples.
A pre-course, online questionnaire could be provided to assess pre-knowledge and further align course content and procedures to needs and interests.
