As the final report of this project emerges, here is a short reflection on the context within which it was developed, as well as where it might lead us. By Gabriela Daniels
The Teaching and Professional Fellowship “Learning videos- do they work for you” benefitted from its close association with the DIAL project. The project proposal’s aim and objectives were developed with the personal support from the DIAL and ALTO project managers, and with the help of video resources and papers on OER made available via Processarts, and the DIAL blog. A key project objective was to contribute to enhancing learning and teaching practices by creating guidelines for producing and embedding learning videos in practical workshops. This objective is closely aligned with the DIAL objective to explore issues around digitally enhanced practices. The range of information provided by the DIAL and associated blogs informed our project’s activities (i.e. postings on: http://process.arts.ac.uk/category/project-groups/cltad-teaching-development-projects; http://dial.myblog.arts.ac.uk/2012/05/25/should-ual-evaluate-digital-skill-levels-of-staff-and-students/)
DIAL also provided a link with previous and concurrent fellowship winners, Laura Norton and Lesley Raven, whose commentary and shared experience was helpful to our projects progress planning. DIAL offered a platform for sharing our preliminary findings and advised on other dissemination events i.e. conferences; this is in line with our objective to share good practice: http://process.arts.ac.uk/category/project-groups/making-online-learning-videos.
