The deployment of audio and video offers various possibilities for enriching your teaching. It can make learning more entertaining and help foster your students’ engagement.

Appropriate audio and video can complement your teaching while reducing the tedium of standard classroom sessions. Furthermore, careful scheduling of the activities can contribute to helping organise the learning process in a way that is more satisfying for both your students and you.

This Pre-Conference Workshop deals with the creation of short learning videos and their possible applications in teaching, with a particular focus on didactic factors.

Join us for an overview of the technical equipment required. You’ll also have the opportunity to practice audio, video and screen recording for various teaching situations, as well as video editing and dissemination of the produced material.

Target audience
