This week I had the pleasure of participating and giving a talk at the 2013 EFMD conference on higher education challenges and solutions. The conference offered insightful talks by experts in the field and it was held at the Otto Beisheim School of Management, WHU Campus in Düsseldorf, Germany.
As one of the key themes of the conference was “Blended Learning” (i.e. using new online technologies, MOOCs etc.), video media was given a particular spotlight. I had the chance to present alongside with Jen Ross, MOOC specialist and Program Director from the University of Edinburgh, UK. Her presentation gave an interesting overview of what it takes to run massive open online courses, and she also pointed out toward the importance of using film. Find below my presentation.
Basically, my intention was to introduce new ways to think about the video medium in teaching. Thought it might be worthwhile to share.
