As most were easing into the new year and tackling the Christmas inbox overload, at CIE we were preparing to welcome colleagues from across the UK to an event which would look to discuss the pedagogic value of lecture recording and video for learning, as well as begin to address some of the concerns staff may have around these areas.

Themes of the day included ‘Pedagogical uses of lecture capture’, ‘Video for learning’ and ‘Video for assessment’. After an initial introduction from Simon Thomson (Director, CIE) discussing how we can convince lecturers that using lecture capture won’t put them out of a job and that it might actually improve their teaching, John Couperthwaite (Echo360) then asked the room to think of and vote on alternative terms for the sometimes negatively associated ‘lecture capture’, we jumped straight in to the packed agenda.

Between the themes, breakout activities included crowdsourcing ideas for two staff guides, which CIE will produce and share back to the community under an open CC licence. The first, a Spotlight guide to Pedagogical use of Lecture Capture’ and the second ‘A Spotlight guide to video for learning and assessment’. Look out for these guides on our Guides & Resources pages and while they’re being written, check out some of the other spotlight guides in the series.

Poster and video presentations were also included for viewing and discussion throughout the breaks, including:

A video-based intervention for teaching statistics to higher education students based on peer-assisted learning

Angel Tan & Themis Karaminis, Edge Hill University

Suggestions for the alternative term for ‘lecture capture’ included: ‘replay’, ‘teaching catch-up’, ‘digital video recording’ but the winning vote was ‘learning capture’ – what do you think?

Thanks to all who attended the event and started some of the important conversations around these subjects. We look forward to keeping this community of practice open and further sharing our idea, research and findings.
