The training sessions were held by leading experts at LIMEL (KU Leuven’s Educational Video Producing Center) under the supervision of by V. van Petegem and Ch. van Keer.
The training sessions were attended by 29 representatives of 9 universities from Armenia, Georgia and Belarus. The trainees were introduced to the current approaches to OER, the main methods of their use, transformation and dissemination, as well as to the key requirements necessary for the preparation of educational videos.
Towards the end of the training session the participants came up with their own educational videos and discussed certain aspects which could help improve their efficiency and quality.
In fact, this was one of the most productive PRINTeL courses promoting innovative teaching and learning which provided the attendees with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills the combination of which yielded a measurable and evaluative educational product – educational videos. This training session was an important step in the development of the professional skills of YSU staff and that of our partner universities.
It sure will lead to increased efficiency of the recording studio to be established within the framework of the PRINTeL Project that aims to provide students with yet another opportunity to access innovative education.
