Media Enhanced Teaching and Learning (METAL) workshops

Hi everyone,
The number of people at Nottingham (in a number of disciplines)  using Camtasia to record video materials to support the teaching of their modules (etc.) is steadily increasing. We recently obtained funding to purchase another 100 Camtasia licenses (and some associated hardware), and we are currently distributing these. This funding will also support me to run up to four workshops, in order to disseminate some ideas concerning good practice, and generally to discuss some of the methodologies we have used. I expect to have support from (at least) Sally Hanford  (Learning Team) and Peter Rowlett, but it is not yet certain whether these will be all-day or half-day events. I do currently expect the events to be free to attend. Whether or not we will also be able to provide a free lunch will be announced in due course!

The first two workshops are provisionally scheduled for May 27th and June 22nd, both  in room C15 Pope Building, University Park Campus, University of Nottingham. Further details concerning registration and the timetable of events will be announced soon. (My current plan is to set up a mailman email mailing list for those attending the workshops.) If you are potentially interested in attending, you can email me immediately at, and I’ll email you as soon as I have more details.

  1. Here is the text of the invitation we will be sending out (I’ll also give this a separate post of its own). Note that this refers to May 2011!

    Invitation to METAL workshop on 27th May

    Are you interested in creating audio visual media to enhance your teaching?

    Are you already doing so and want to learn from what others are doing and share your experiences?

    The METAL (Media Enhanced Teaching and Learning) project is a University of Nottingham school led project that aims to build and support the growing community of staff involved in creating audio visual teaching material.

    The first project workshop will take place on Friday 27th May from 10:30-16:00 in Room C15, Pope Building, University Park, Nottingham NG7 2RD. Lunch will be provided.

    At this free workshop you’ll be able to find out what facilities and support are available in Nottingham, try out some of the hardware and software, find out what others are doing and talk about your experiences and any concerns you have.
