As Seen On TV: Promoting the use of broadcast media in HE

  1. 1. As Seen OnTV: Promoting the use of broadcast media in HE Dr Chris Willmott Dept of Molecular & Cell Biology University of Leicester, UK cjrw2@le.ac.uk IFNTFWorld Summit, Halifax (May 2018)
  2. 2. • We can (and should) be integrating more multimedia into our teaching Use of broadcast clips Video production News analysis Central premise
  3. 3. • We can (and should) be integrating more multimedia into our teaching Use of broadcast clips Central premise
  4. 4. • Justification for use of broadcast media in teaching • Examples from my practice • The [Subject]OnTheBox project • Broader advice on setting up online repositories for education p136 in papers Overview
  5. 5. A: Enhancing Teaching 1. Illustration of Theory 2. Practical Application 3. Contextualising Content 4. Analysis of Critical Issues 5. Demonstrating “Messy Complexity” Why use broadcast media?
  6. 6. B: Process of Learning 6. Active Learning 7. Emotion, Engagement & Retention Why use broadcast media?
  7. 7. C: Medium as Message 8. Critical Thinking 9. Student-driven Curriculum 10. Moral development 11. Media-savvy students Why use broadcast media?
  8. 8. • In addition to YouTube, there are also dedicated services specifically for education • e.g. BoB (UK), Clickview (Australia, etc) The Rise of Streaming Services
  9. 9. • “On demand” service, archive of TV and radio broadcasts from over 65 UK (& International) channels • Already contains over 2 million records, growing daily • Available for subscribing institutions • Currently user must be in UK (issues re overseas DL) BoB
  10. 10. Reasons include: • Content not sufficiently “academic” • Worries that technology might fail • Insufficient time in curriculum • Concerns about copyright • Lack of vision for potential uses • Uncertain what is available and/or where to find it Academic Reluctance to Use Media
  11. 11. A Child Against All Odds http://tinyurl.com/PGSanalysis Example (1): Documentary clips
  12. 12. Die Another Day http://tinyurl.com/BondGeneTherapy1 http://tinyurl.com/BondGeneTherapy2 Example (2): Scene setting
  13. 13. Brainiac Science Abuse: The Smell of Fear http://tinyurl.com/SmellOfFear1 http://tinyurl.com/SmellOfFear2 Example (3): Discussion
  14. 14. • Students watch short clip describing an experiment to investigate whether you can smell if someone is afraid • Having watched the clip, they discuss: - what was good about the design of the expt? - what was wrong with the experiment? http://tinyurl.com/terrorface1 Example (3): Discussion
  15. 15. • students then asked to work with those sitting near them to design a better experiment looking into whether it is possible to smell fear http://tinyurl.com/armpitsniffing1 Example (3):A better version
  16. 16. Prehn-Kristensen et al (2009), PLoS ONE 4(6): e5987 http://tinyurl.com/anxietypaper A more scientific approach
  17. 17. The Cell (2): The Chemistry of Life http://tinyurl.com/ChemOfLifeEp2 Example (4):A full programme
  18. 18. • Difficult to fit full episode into lecture slot? • Not best use of F2F time? • BoB raises potential for requiring students to watch programme before lecture or tutorial • Flipped classroom • “Viewing lists” as well as “reading lists” for module Example (4): Context and use
  19. 19. • Recommendations for TV (and radio) footage that can used for enriching teaching & learning • Programme tips equally valid without BoB, just harder to get hold of • Sharing best practice - metadata & keywords - describe usage • A collaborative project - students as producers - different institutions [Subject]OnTheBox Project
  20. 20. • Biologyonthebox.wordpress.com • Started September 2014 • Post of various styles Biology on the Box
  21. 21. Other disciplines starting to develop similar sites Astrophysicsonthebox.wordpress.com Englishonthebox.wordpress.com Historyonthebox.wordpress.com Other [Subject]OnTheBox sites
  22. 22. • Reflecting on experience with [Subject]OnTheBox project and other education blogs led to checklist for anyone considering setting up & running shared educational resource Broader Reflections on Developing Online Educational Resources
