Feedback and lecture recording: How can we move beyond recorded lectures? -- 207 -- Demonstration

10:50 - 11:50 on Wednesday, 12 September 2012 in 2.218

The workshop will be presented by leaders from the Erasmus REC: all project ( which is researching how lectures are currently being captured and used, suggesting learning designs for flexible and off-campus delivery, reviewing technical, pedagogical and legal issues and producing practical guidelines to help teachers. Workshop participants will be invited to join the REC: all active community of practitioners.

More and more universities are recording their live lectures and then putting them online (‘weblectures') as a way to support both on and off campus students. As we have found with the UK ViTAL special interest group (supported by ALT) video is increasingly a core feature of the virtual campus. There is now a significant sector investment in lecture capture systems, podcasts, multimedia lecture theatres, i-Tunes U and streaming services. Lecture capture itself is rapidly evolving both technologically and conceptually. What was once seen as a passive recording method is now seen as an enabler of more participative and student-centred models. The Oasis project in the Netherlands for example discovered that the more interaction designed into the different types of weblectures, the better it works for students to really understand the material. Oasis created a multi-dimensional pedagogical model, now being integrated in the current REC:all project, where the types of different weblectures are related to learning goals.

The workshop will enable participants to explore and assess these new pedagogical designs for lecture capture, based on research and models from the Oasis and REC: all projects. Our focus is on adding value to learning in combination with interaction and social models. The workshop leaders will share our experiences of the last 3 years and work with the participants to collaboratively describe and discuss informal models to help individuals and institutions develop these potentially paradigm-shifting approaches.The workshop aims to develop our collective view, based on the participants’ contribution and feedback on the applicability and potential of these approaches.

Provisional agenda:

  • Welcome/background, overview of aims of workshop – 10 mins
  • Participant's and researchers’ experience of lecture capture, including pros and cons; group discussion and feedback – 10 mins
  • New pedagogical models, including example material – 15 mins
  • Could these models work in your context? Group discussion and feedback – 15 mins
  • Wrapping up – overview of outcomes of workshop, action points – 10 mins

Participants who attend the workshop will also gain a deeper understanding of

  • new technological and pedagogical learning designs based on lecture capture
  • how weblectures can be used effectively in conventional, blended and distance courses
  • different types of interaction possible with weblectures
  • the time and technological skills/infrastructure required
  • how social networking can be integrated
  • Workshop participants will be invited to join and contribute to the REC: all active community of practitioners.
