Presented by Carrie Finn and Matt Petersen

Workshops up to 30 August 2020 will be conducted via Zoom and cover points 1 and 2 outlined below (duration 1.5 hours). Special emphasis will be placed on scripting for recording lectures for online learning.

During Semester 2 (or whenever practicable), participants who have completed the online session will be invited to complete a face-to-face session studio session on campus at St Lucia.

Writing for video is very different from traditional academic writing.

In this 2.5 hours workshop (reduced to 1.5 hours until 30 August 2020) you will learn how to put together a script ready to present to video.

In the studio you will be introduced to proven techniques used to ensure that your presentation to camera is professional and engaging for students. You will record a video and then have the opportunity to review this and learn how you might improve.

This course will enable participants to:

1. Develop a script using a structure that emphasises increased student engagement 
2. Write a script ready to use in the teleprompter (including mark-ups to identify how this should look) 
3. Draw on skills learnt to deliver the script to the camera 
4. Use feedback to adapt the delivery as required.
