Abstract

Large groups, IT suites, internet connected computers and plenty of other distractions, a recipe for difficult delivery and inconsistent learning environment? It doesn’t have to be so. We can combat these issues by sharing best practice within institutions and across the sector. Two years ago a dramatic shift in our delivery of AVID Pro Tools workshops happened; we started to team teach the four two day workshops scheduled for our first term second year undergraduates. The results were self evident from the first session. The two of us were able to begin to challenge some of the preconceptions of software workshop delivery, as well as enable a greater understanding of the role of sound in moving image projects. The learning and teaching methods used included the standard ‘chalk and talk’ approach as well as using other more contemporary tools such as VLEs and online resources such as Lynda.com. Better student understanding, more developed assessment work and a highly engaged cohort have resulted. This is just the beginning; we are still developing our approaches and hope to further refine all aspects of these workshops for the future.
