  • UCL Arena EduMedia-Savvy Masterclass

    How do we adapt to serious educational purpose the techniques that education media professionals have developed and honed over the years, now that anyone can get hands on the hardware? We're used to having fifty minutes to present and develop ideas with the expectation that students will see the point by the end, but nobody these days, not even you, has that kind of patience on screen. Whether for better or worse, the world has changed and we need to inspire first and explain after. All in two minutes, not fifty. Cameras, smartphones, tablets, WiFi, projectors - you name it, these days it's within easy reach. But how to use it well to create engaging materials that will genuinely advance students' learning - not so easy! Dr Mike Howarth brings a rare combination of teaching, experience in professionall media production and higher education, producing quality teaching materials with creative efficiency for UCL and elsewhere. But he also wants to pass on the core skills and knowledge to enable colleagues to produce their own resources just as easily. In this masterclass, Mike shows practical ways to organise creative multimedia teaching materials that inform, engage and inspire students. Using what he calls EduMedia-Savvy Teaching mindset, he promotes creative production with time control, variety of structures and a focus on the end-user. 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. we will work together hands-on to bring these ideas to fruition, either using your own equipment or what we can provide on the day. You will suprise yourself (and your students!) with what you can do in a relatively short time, using these edumedia-savvy teaching strategies.
