Video Documentaries in the Assessment of Human Geography Field Courses
Mavroudi, Elizabeth; Jons, Heike
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v35 n4 p579-598 2011
This paper critically reviews the use of video documentaries in the assessment of human geography field courses. It aims to contribute to recent debates about the role of visual methods for developing active and deep learning in student-centred teaching. Based on four days of group work in Crete, 30 third-year students produced individual 10-minute video documentaries on "Mediterranean Rural Spaces". Analysing students' experiences of video production highlights the need for innovative teaching and assessment methods and the importance of creating independent and creative students equipped with a broad set of skills for an increasingly flexible job market.
