Enhancing international student engagement through making and sharing films

Cox, A.M. and Taha, N. (2010) Enhancing international student engagement through making and sharing films. In: Proceedings of the 11th Annual conference of the Subject Centre for Information and Computer Sciences, 24-26th August, University of Durham.


Supporting international students to adjust to the requirements of studying in British universities and also to bring their diverse knowledge and perspectives actively into the classroom is the challenge of internationalisation. Film making offers a promising route to both engage students through an intense group work task, reduce emphasis on English language skills and create reusable content articulating issues in new ways. A project redesigning an information society module with film making as part of the assessment is explained, focussing on how the design offers strategies of hospitality, empowerment and criticality to engage internationalised students. Outcomes that made further issues around internationalisation more concrete are discussed. Future plans include running two parallel classes to promote inter-professional and inter-cultural learning.
