The VideoAktiv Project
Videoaktiv offered face-to-face and virtual staff development workshops on digital media use for higher education. During the course of a VideoAktiv workshop, participants receive training and support in their practices of developing and delivering pedagogically sound media materials in their own teaching. The aim of VideoAktiv was to support practitioners in becoming visually literate using this exciting range of technologies and to learn to effectively use and develop audio visual resources with new digital technologies in ways that are aligned with what they want to achieve educationally.
It is a web site with many resources about creating and using audio and video material for educational purposes:
• Good Practices Database (with 50 examples)
• Downloadable Handbook
• 20 live workshops for teaching and support staff in Higher Education
• Virtual Workshops in several languages: English, French, Dutch (twice) and Spanish
• Papers, reports and external links
This project ran from October 1, 2004 to December 31, 2006 is granted by the European Commission under the Socrates/Minerva programme.
