Abstract

Film and video lecturers are subject matter experts, however many individuals still use traditional teaching methods. To deliver relevant and engaging teaching, lecturers can turn to an emerging form – the Video Essay. The Video Essay is multimodal and works in accord with media literacy practices. As a contemporary approach, the Video Essay is an effective tool in the teaching curriculum (Bateman, 2016; McWhirter, 2015). This abstract is a summary of our research project funded by a WAND (West Australian Network for Dissemination) teaching and learning grant. The project objective is the design of a Video Essay Resource package to support the introduction of the Video Essay form into teaching areas across creative industries and to encourage learning through multimodal engagement. The Vides Essay Resource package is currently in the design phase and will be online in July 2017
