FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Participants will be asked to bring with them information about their region (photographs, brochures, posters), to briefly introduce where they come from.
They will also receive from the programme organisers approximately four weeks before the course a list of websites they should visit to see various applications of video in a teaching and learning context along with the agenda and practical information about their participation in this course.
• To introduce participants to the general value video can have in enhancing lifelong learning opportunities for learners of every age, this includes the use of both existing video based resources and the creation and publication of user-generated video resources.
• To discuss and make explicit with participants through a range of interactive and participative sessions illustrated with examples the various pedagogical usages that video can be put to. These range from the ways in which archive news footage can be used to stimulate discussions into current social issues to the practical application of video to show complex processes and experiments in physics, engineering and biology.
• To teach participants during hands-on practical sessions the basics of video capture, editing and publication in order for them to be able to capture, edit and publish simple video clips that can be used in a teaching and learning context.
• To highlight the many online resources available to those interested in using video in the learning context ranging from online training materials and samples of good practice to repositories of video based materials and communities of practice.
Participants will receive hands-on training on the creation of digital video for the classroom. Participants will then be given access to hardware and software to practice specific skills in a practical and supportive environment in the classroom.
Then, working in teams, participants will be required to conceive, plan and create a short video clip for teaching purposes utilising the skills and knowledge they have gained. These clips will be used for a final evaluation session which will include a public screening to which several interested people from Leuven and the surrounding region will be invited. This will ensure that not only have participants gained insight into the value video can bring to the learning process, but they will also have gained the skills and practical knowledge necessary to create their own video materials.
Guided demonstration sessions will be used to highlight video-based materials available online. Participants will be shown different examples including the materials and showcases available through the MEDEA, EduTubePlus and EUscreen projects. Discussions about these materials will also highlight important legal and technical constraints related to the use of video for teaching purpose.
To stimulate discussion and to raise issues related to quality and pedagogical value of video, two visits are foreseen. The first of these to CINEMATEK in Brussels, (Belgian Film Archive and Film Museum) will include a guided tour and will serve to raise topics related to media literacy and our cinematic heritage. The second to the Audiovisual Centre of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, will focus more on the pedagogical use of video and other media..
The location chosen for the course, the recently renovated Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe located in the historic and picturesque heart of the Flemish University city Leuven will allow participants to share their knowledge and background in an informal manner.
During the course, participants will receive a set of working documents which they can use after the workshop to use digital video in the classroom and they will also have access to the trainers via email for as long as necessary to help support them in their efforts to utilize video for teaching and learning purposes. Participants will also be enrolled in an online discussion group related to the use of media in education and so will be able to keep in contact with the other participants as well as the trainers in the months after the course.
