M&L webinar: Student-generated video in a Higher Education setting



Watch the recording here.

Many universities and colleges are encouraging students to deliver assignment and projects using video. Often these types of materials are part of the assessment process. Presenters in this webinar will include academics in different university settings who will describe how they go about making video part of the student’s workload and how they deal with challenges related to quality, storage and assessment.

Anssi Kirkonpelto, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Finland


Anssi Kirkonpelto works at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences in Finland as a dance teacher and team manager in the dance teacher education program. Dance is a very practical and physical subject to teach. When we teach or study dance, all our emotions, feelings and senses are present. Dancing is a nonverbal activity. Bodily gestures are the main way to communicate and movement is always under the laws of biomechanics. Every mind and body is different and functions in a different way. Behind everything there is theory but when we teach an outcome should be very practical. Anssi Kirkonpelto has used information technology in many ways in the teaching of the dance for over 8 years.



Jan Brouwer, The Hague University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands

Jan Brouwer has worked as a lecturer of English with the School of European Studies (ES) of the Hague University of Applied Sciences for over 20 years. Currently he coordinates a programme, named ‘prep school’, for non-European students who want to improve their English and academic skills prior to entering the international classrooms of the various programmes of the university. Students generate individual and group video to prepare for public speaking, debating and presenting. These video simulations have resulted in both increased self awareness and self confidence. The video capabilities of the now widely available mobile phone have greatly facilitated the use of video in the prep school, in spite of the amateur quality of the resulting product. This does create a dilemma, because poor quality student generated video does not provide effective instruction material for other students. Yet, training the students to produce high quality video seems to defeat the purpose of using video as a mere tool to learn.
