Video in Teaching and Learning: Creating your own videos

Video in Teaching and Learning – A two-part series

Part 2: Creating your own videos

If you are interested in creating videos for your own teaching, this course will help! We will explore the practical and hands-on aspects of making different types of videos in this course, including how to storyboard, tips and tricks for production, and how to record yourself. It will also look at the different ways you can share and license your videos, so you can decide who can access and use them. Finally, this course will share strategies on how to integrate the videos you create into your teaching practice so that they are a valuable learning tool for students.

This course Is Part 2 of a series on Video, with Part 1 investigating why and how video can be used for university teaching and learning. In Part 1, we discuss what makes an effective educational video and explore types of video formats for different disciplines. You are welcome to sign up for either or both of the courses.
