Establishing Documentary Production Support for 21st Century Campuses
Davison, Elizabeth L.; Hansell, Thomas S.
Education and Information Technologies, v19 n1 p227-237 Mar 2014
As a response to the growing trend of academic assignments that involve some type of video production, this paper advocates that campuses need to provide instructional as well as technical support for such projects. Universities invest in writing centers to help cultivate writing skills because they understand that providing the latest word processing programs doesn't ensure students become better writers. Similarly, students with flip/cell video cameras and editing software are not likely to produce quality projects without guidance and thus need a similar network of support for these 21st century forms of communication. This paper presents a model for offering documentary services to entire campus communities--including technology, technique, and pedagogical considerations that lead to educational film productions with strong academic content and integrity.
