What can you expect?
Aimed at enthusiastic educators who would like to create their own educational video materials, this week-long residential course organised by ATiT combines theoretical and practical elements. It will raise your awareness as to the value video can bring to teaching and learning and will equip you with the necessary basic skills to create and share your own educational video materials.
You will work in a small team to produce your own educational video programme and this process is interchanged with theoretical sessions and visits to ensure a good balance of work. The course culminates with a public showcase of the videos produced by the different teams to an invited audience.
The course agenda includes a visit to a relevant organisation in the area. You will have access to recording and editing and can also bring your own camera and laptop. You will also be provided with a selection of resources, materials and tools to enhance your own creation of educational video resources as well as tips and suggestions about how to use existing video-based resources.
A good mix of theory and hands-on. Both basic and more sophisticated stuff.
(Participant - February 2011 course)
This course is provided in English and the number of participants is limited to 20. Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.
Rules and Regulations

- The accommodation provided in this residential course is exclusively for the teachers and trainers taking part in the course. Trainees who have partners or friends who would like to visit Leuven during that time are strongly recommended to arrange a joint stay before or after the course. During the course the trainees’ time will be dedicated to training and group work, having a guest staying with you would otherwise affect group dynamics. Guests that arrive on Friday are welcome to join us for the screening of the group work.
