CPD Videos in Education: Two-part series

Videos in Education: A two-part series

From concept to finished product

Workshop description

Restrictions relating to COVID-19 have reshaped the way we organize and deliver our education. When using a video conferencing tool, lectures and tutorials they need to be limited timewise to ensure effective learning without overstraining both students and staff. Supplementing and/or replacing live (online or offline) sessions with pre-recorded videos in a variety of formats, has proven an efficient format that is greatly appreciated by our students, as they can watch anytime, anywhere and at their own pace. Not only during online education, also now, as we return to the face-to-face lecture and tutorial format, the use of video can replace transmission of knowledge from your lecture hall or classroom and enhance interactivity during contact time.

If you want to create your own educational videos, this workshop series will prepare you to make a successful start.


In the first on-campus session on 26 October 2021 (15:00-16:30 CET) we will discuss several didactical scenarios within a PBL setting and relate videos to learning outcomes. Then you will learn about various video formats, effective video design and how to deal with copyright. Together we will go through all the steps of the video pre-production phase, including scripting, video design, resources and tips and tricks for the actual production phase: filming

The sessions are supported by online access to videos instructions and there will be time to ask questions and receive feedback. As one learns best by doing, you will be asked to complete a few assignments to prepare for session two, namely writing your own brief and script and recording or collecting some video material.

In the follow-up online session on 16 November 2021 (15:00- max. 17:00 CET), you will be carefully guided through the basics of video-editing and have the chance to try this out for yourself in a step-by-step manner supported by an expert.

After the second sessions, you will have the opportunity for constructive feedback if you finish  and submit your video before the 30th of November.

As good design leads to more engaging videos, we highly recommend you follow both sessions.  However, should you wish to delve straight into second online session, specifically focusing on the editing process, this is also possible.  You can request this by e-mailing us directly at edlab-edservice@maastrichtuniversity.nl
