Educational Multimedia Group
We are setting up an Educational Multimedia Group for staff who are keen to incorporate more multimedia into their courses, as well as share their experiences with other members of staff.
The group will look to share and discuss good practice of the use of multimedia in educational delivery. This will include, but not be limited to, aspects such as:
- Interactive multimedia
- Video in education
- Multimedia web tools
- Multimedia apps for tablets and phones
- Web conferencing
- Student-created video
Face-to-face coffee mornings will be arranged 3 times a year, these will be informal meetings and the majority of the time will be handed over to the members to share their ideas and experiences. We will also look to arrange regular online meetings, as well as develop online resources to disseminate information about the latest multimedia tools available to staff.
