Teaching using videos
Teaching using videos is one of the methods used in eCoNNECT
Within the eCoNNECT project we are using videos to promote interactive learning. Module participants explore the roles and responsibilities of clinical teachers, learners and school-based teachers. Participants are encouraged to look at how we communicate and interact during practice placements, what the issues are related to supervision, feedback and assessment and how they can be improved. The videos also have the advantage that they can be easily shared online.
The videos mimic the reality of practice, the work-placement has been carefully re-created within the videos so that module participants can relate to the content.
We hired professional actors to act out the ideas that we scripted within the eCoNNECT project team.
The use of more than one language in the videos is required to ensure that all module participants can follow the content. While the videos were filmed in English, they are equipped with German and Dutch subtitles. See examples below:
German subtitles can be activated on demand with a simple action to assist with a shared understanding among module participants.
Dutch subtitles can be activated on demand with a simple action to assist with a shared understanding among module participants.
We added discussion points (using a technology called H5P) at crucial moments in the video. Open-ended questions encourage participants to explore the topics covered in the module and to share their experiences.
Discussions take place during webinars and on the online learning platform.
