NAHEMI Talking Shop 2020 CFP

‘Teaching Production During the Pandemic’

Call for Presentations

 Talking Shop is NAHEMI’s annual conference where we have the chance to meet, share best practice, and discuss the issues and highlights of teaching moving image production in UK Higher Education. This year, like so many other organisations, we are moving online for our conference. Full details to follow

We are inviting five minute presentations that address the important questions raised by our current situation – finding new ways to teach production during a pandemic. This could be a Pecha Kucha, reflections on a case study, a verbal presentation, or a slide show with commentary, but it has to be prepared with online presentation in mind. We hope by sharing your ideas now, we can inform and support NAHEMI members as they consider graduation screenings and preparations for the next academic year.

Below, are some essential themes in the on-going debate we would like you to address:

  • Is it possible to teach filmmaking online?
  • What is ‘blended learning’ in a practice-led programme?
  • What are the challenges and positive outcomes of the pandemic situation?
  • How can we support first year students to experience real film production?
  • What can be done to replace the degree show?
  • What constitutes a good online teaching experience?
  • Has online teaching provided better access to professionals in the film and TV industry, what are your experiences?
  • Are we able to give students their money’s worth with online teaching?
  • What are your strategies for online group learning?
  • What is your approach in teaching practical workshops and cleaning equipment?

Please submit a 200 word proposal, based on one or more of the listed themes or related areas, to chair@nahemi.org along with a brief bio by Friday 15 June.
