Videos are increasingly being used to support student learning with students either viewing videos or participating in the production of videos as part of their studies. This webinar will showcase two case studies from different parts in Europe (Finland & UK), where video is used to support, improve and activate students' learning.
Our first speaker Janne Länsitie  from the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Finland will discuss a recent international hackathon-style event titled the Educational Video Challenge that brought teacher education students together to co-produce educational videos.
Janne will be followed by Morris Pamplin & Martin Agombar, both Educational Technologists working at the Multimedia and Innovation Learning Lab (MILL) of the City University London, they will tell how they are supporting academic staff to create high-level video based learning resources in different subjects such as Engineering, Law & Health Sciences.
The webinar will focus on the key question of: how are university-level students & teachers currently using and producing videos to support their subject area?
