Video for Teaching and Learning Workshops - Learning Environments

Learning Environments are hosting three workshops on using video to enhance teaching and learning as part of a larger series exploring Designing for Learning with Technology. The workshops will detail how to use video technologies to achieve your design objectives, focusing on theory and discussion activities around the theory.

Register to learn what the research says about videos in education, how to design effective presentations and interviews, and how to edit your recordings.

The three workshops are:

Workshop 1: Presentations (23rd November 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm) - This session will explore how to redesign presentations from the ground up to make better videos.
