Using Video to Promote Language Development in the Classroom
Workshop leaders: Dr. Dennie Hoopingarner & Dr. Angelika Kraemer
Workshop times: 9:00am-4:00pm each day

Enhance your learning environment with the rich, contextualized input that video materials can provide. The combination of aural and visual cues naturally makes video input more comprehensible, but video can be used for much more than listening comprehension. You can also use it to teach sociolinguistic competence, and promote output (both oral and written). This workshop will consider multiple uses of video as well as techniques for adapting authentic materials to learners of various proficiency levels.

Workshop participants will learn how to locate, identify, and select appropriate video, and explore the relative advantages and appropriate use of authentic and scripted video materials. The workshop will also introduce methods for creating video-based lessons, including pre-viewing, during viewing, and post-viewing activities, top-down and bottom-up activities, selective listening activities, and interactive and communicative uses of video.
This workshop will also cover the practical use of digital video recorders and computers to shoot and edit video projects. Topics include camera techniques, dubbing audio and adding subtitles, and output options. During the workshop, participants will also learn how to upload, download, and access their videos from the Internet. Although computers and some video equipment will be available for participants to use during the workshop, participants are encouraged to bring their own camcorders or digital video cameras, so that they can become familiar with their equipment.
