Digital Video: Exploitation and Creation
Date: Tuesday 11 November
Time: 15:00 GMT
The moving image is taking centre stage in our everyday landscape of communication. This is blurring the distinction between the amateur and professional, the formal and informal, the verbal and visual. However, pedagogical use of video for language learning purposes is still often anchored in classroom tasks which don’t fulfil its true potential. This webinar will investigate alternative ways in which digital video can be created and exploited and how it can be integrated into other tasks, rather than being seen in isolation. We will explore the visual richness of the medium and the benefits of learner-generated video both in and out of the conventional classroom environment.
