Capturing imaginations: Why it’s important to consider alternative uses of (lecture) capture technologies
AbstractThis session will encourage practitioners to think creatively about alternative uses of capture technologies, critically evaluating them in relation to their own practice and institutional perspectives. Innovative use cases and data from the University of Wolverhampton Capture Technologies project will be used to support workshop activities and discussion. Participants will also be encouraged to share their own experiences and to consider strategies for incorporating content recorded using capture technologies into their overall educational approach. The ideas and best practices discussed may have implications for leaders and managers to inform institutional policy and have an impact on metrics related to NSS and TEF. The Capture Technologies Project at the University of Wolverhampton promotes a shift in focus away from conventional use of capture technology for recording lectures. It advocates purposeful use of capture technologies to create content that is integrated into an overall educational approach and encourages student engagement. Studies at the University of Wolverhampton have shown that using capture technologies to produce other types of content (such as unpacking assessment briefs, flipped classroom materials and student generated content) adds value to the student experience and can increase engagement with the curriculum, which may ultimately lead to a positive impact on student outcomes.
