‘Bar Camp’ @ LCC

I took part in the Learning Studio’s inaugural ‘Bar Camp’ event held @ LCC last week – Thursday 10th February. This was an informal, informative and very enjoyable event where practitioners from all over UAL shared their expertise and experience of using a variety of media in their teaching and learning. This included: the use of streaming video (in this case using simple Flip cams for filming); the Process Arts website – http://process.arts.ac.uk; Jackson Jessop’s website which houses a wealth of useful information about video production – http://www.thekitroom.net; production and distribution of screencasts using tools such as Camtasia, Jing and Camstudio; production and use of audio material; online publishing – using platforms such as Issuu http://issuu.com/. All very useful stuff with plenty of opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, kinesthetic learning – and having fun! (The latter evidenced by the videos produced by participants in the ‘documenting the cupcake decoration’ exercise :-)) Further information and videos also available @ http://process.arts.ac.uk/content/cup-cake-video
