Course Summary

Being raised in a digital era, today’s students may find conventional pursuits like reading to be incredibly monotonous while naturally focusing much more on audiovisual information (e.g., videos, photos, and audio resources). Therefore, educators can sometimes feel unprepared when attempting to teach students in a new media language.

This course has been designed for educators who want to use audiovisuals (including video production) to enhance student engagement and foster collaboration.

By introducing the participants to the pedagogical power of audiovisual information, this course seeks to close the gap. 

The course’s programme structure will cross the different areas of audiovisual tools, audio production, digital video production and concept and digital image management focused on teachers’ and educators’ jobs related to the work in the classroom.

By the end of the course, teachers will feel confident in using a variety of online resources, video and photography technologies to create teaching aids and educational projects for their pupils.
