CEL Innovation Room #6: Videos in Education

Start date
End date

The central topic of this Innovation Room is how videos can be used in education. Different forms of video will be discussed, from a ‘production’ point of view and a ‘teacher’ point of view. A number of speakers have been invited to share their knowledge and experiences with you. The goal is to inform you about when certain forms of video are most effective, what works and does not work in developing videos and what to take into consideration when you would like to use video yourself. 

During the first part before the break, colleagues from the MOOC studio’s in Leiden and Delft will talk about the way MOOC are made there and share latest developments in filming. After the break the teacher perspective will be brought into the spotlight by teachers developing videos.

Venue:  Gravensteen Leiden University, Pieterskerkhof 6, 2311 SR,  Leiden 

This event is already full, we hope to see you at the next event!

11.00h: Harrie Boelens – Faculty of Social Sciences Leiden

He will tell you how he got inspired to use knowledge clips that students watch outside of class, why he opted for the ‘animation with voice-over’, and how the production process of the clips was. More information here (only in Dutch). 

11.30h: Rob Mudde – Distinguished Professor in Science Education Delft

Rob Mudde will share his experiences in making MOOCs in the studio in Delft and some work on videos he has done by himself, like using a glass plate (see here). Rob will tell you what he learned from making MOOCs and how he uses this in campus-based education.
