Introducing EduMedia – video producer Dr Mike Howarth’s new teaching resource workshop

26 June 2014

“We have the technology, but what can we do with it?” asks Dr Mike Howarth. Find out at his 24 July workshop

“You are creative – it comes with the job of being a teacher and researcher,” explains Dr Mike Howarth. “The challenge is harnessing those abilities to use them effectively.”

Dr Howarth currently makes video resources as a consultant to the Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT). Having previously worked at the BBC as a radio producer and as a higher education teacher, he has had an opportunity to gain hands-on training in creating educational resources at a professional level. He is now keen to pass on those lessons.

“Cameras, smartphones, tablets, projectors – you name it, these days it's within easy reach,” explains Dr Howarth. “But how to use it well to create engaging materials that will genuinely advance students' learning? Not so easy!”

In this masterclass, Dr Howarth will share practical ways of organising creative multimedia teaching materials that inform, engage and inspire students.

“Bring your ideas for a teaching resource that you would like to develop, whether it be a brand new idea, a part-formed project or an existing teaching tool, and we will work together hands-on to bring these ideas to fruition.”


Thursday 24 July, 10am – 4:30pm
