Video Training for Academics

Learn to produce high quality videos 

The course, created by and for academics at the University of Oxford, covers a full curriculum in video-creation, from script development to dissemination strategy.

It equips participants with a powerful toolkit of production techniques and a creative foundation adaptable to a wide variety of video needs, including but not limited to: home studio setup, whiteboard animation, photo, and stock footage video creation. By the end of the training, participants have all the resources they need to produce high-quality videos.

Emphasis is NOT placed on a classical or technical understanding, but on leveraging automation tools, especially video templates and auto-animation software, allowing busy scholars to shortcut the process to proficiency.

Video tools became essential in the current research environment –  learning to video is relevant to research, teaching, and impact activities. We train faculty members (researchers, professors, lecturers), staff members (communication managers and media officers), as well as postgraduate and postdoctoral students. All participants engage in an active, hands-on learning experience during which they will produce their own videos, that can range from e-classes (e-teaching workshop series) to short video explainers (impact workshop series).
