About Writing and presenting educational video

Presented by Carrie Finn and Matt Petersen.

Writing for video is different from traditional academic writing.

In this 2.5-hour workshop, you will experience both the writing and presenting aspect of video production.

In the first half of the workshop, you will learn how to structure a script that focusses both on engagement and content.

Then, in the studio, you will be introduced to proven techniques that ensure your presentation to camera is professional and engaging for your audience. You will record a video, receive individualised feedback on your performance and, in the process, learn how you might improve and apply what you have learnt to your own videos.

Target audience

All staff who wish to create videos for education or information sharing.


This course will enable participants to:

  1. Develop a script using a structure that emphasises increased student engagement 
  2. Prepare a script for a teleprompter and studio recording scenario or for desktop recording
  3. Draw on skills learnt to deliver the script to the camera 
  4. Use feedback to adapt the delivery as required.
