To date, there has never been any other course that meticulously covers these two fields:
1. Teaching/Learning Roles for which video is potentially outstanding
2. Pedagogic Design Principles to achieve this potential.
- updated from the ideas in the author's book, Designing video and multimedia for open and flexible learning (2006, reprinted 2009).
Field 1 (in week 1):
Potent pedagogic roles for video, leading to robust learning outcomes: a range of techniques and teaching functions for which video is outstandingly capable, due to its distinctive presentational attributes. The 33 roles are distributed between four domains: Cognitive, Experiential, Affective, Skills.
Field 2 (in week 2): A narrative framework of pedagogic design principles for video, consisting of 30 individual design principles in 8 categories: Hook, Signpost, Cognitive Engagement, Constructive Learning, Sensitise, Elucidate, Reinforce, Consolidate.
The teacher will illustrate each 'potent pedagogic role' and each 'design principle' with extracts from educational videos that have been used in online courses.
