Fancy learning film making skills to aid your teaching and research in higher education? Don’t miss this upcoming mojo workshop, taking place in the Discipline of Geography, NUI Galway, July 31st 2019. Details are outlined below:
Would you like to learn practical skills for using your mobile phone to produce short films to aid your teaching and research?
In our contemporary media saturated age, the visual medium of film is an important platform through which we can capture and promote our research as well as engage students in creative teaching methods. In this context, the creative potential of utilising film for research (as a research method, documentation or promotional tool) and teaching (as a form tool for teaching, student engagement and assessment) has received increasing attention.
This upcoming Mojo (mobile journalism) workshop will explore the potential of use of mobile journalism/film as a research and teaching tool.
The day long practical workshop, led by Camara Ireland and TechSpace, will explore conceptual and practical skills for capturing and editing field data and producing short, good quality films of our field work (teaching or research related).
The workshop will take place on Wednesday 31st July in Room 113, Discipline of Geography, 10 am – 5 pm.

• Consider how to bring digital creativity and innovation into research and learning
• Understand the principles of photography, filmmaking and audio production for mobile journalism
