Academic mini documentaries in the university curriculum - The “Cairo: Life and the city” project
14 June 2013
Aula Magna Regina
This presentation details the AUC Cairo: Life and the City project, which uses the academic mini documentary format, now being developed at AUC, to showcase research by faculty members from various disciplines within a one-semester course format. Academic mini documentaries blend MOOC-style lectures and documentary film format to produce entertaining and thought provoking short (10 – 12 minute) videos that can be used in the face-to-face classroom and also posted on the Internet to showcase faculty research. Conceptual, technical and logistical aspects of producing and using mini documentaries in university curricula will be presented and discussed.
