Using interactive video, video essays and discussion groups for language teaching

In this presentation, Clive describes how I integrated the use of flipped teaching for creating more space for in-class discussion through the use of out-of-class assessed discussion groups and out-of-class real-time video comprehension questions. Clive will also describe the set-up and structure of assessed group video essays embedded within wikis and provide some examples of some of the results. This presentation will summarise the student evaluation of the module as well as exploring some of the infrastructural issues arising from the process.
