Target Audience: Academics looking to get information and ideas across to a range of audiences through recorded video.

Success on Screen

Developments in online technologies and electronic media present remarkable opportunities for teaching and learning, as well as developing the profiles of both academics and Universities.  Whether it's a video on your phone, flipped lectures, lecture capture, media interviews or a TED talk, it is increasingly important for academics to be able to convey information, ideas and insights effectively on screen.

This course will enable you to make compelling live and recorded video appearances that positively enhance the ways students and other audiences perceive you, your subject and the institution.  It will equip you with practical communication techniques for succeeding in everything from short, on-camera statements about an area of research to substantial formal videos.

Whether your are an old hand at this, or new to it, the course will boost your confidence, clarity and effectiveness on screen and enable you to connect well with a variety of audiences.  The skills you acquire or develop will be readily transferable to other, off-camera contexts.

After the course, you will be able to get access to a course summary, follow-up material and the resources of the online VOX Academy.
