There is a need for discussing a number of points concerning video conference use at AAU. This could lead to the development of formal strategies, or perhaps informal agreements on how video conference teaching is conducted within a particular educational programme.
video on the status of the initiatives [3:34]
The status of the VAAU intiatives and the plan of action is outlined in this video.
In this video, we bring up relevant questions for discussion that may form the basis of both formal and informal future strategies.
Here is a link to the School of Engineering and Science's video conference policy mentioned in the above video.
A summary of the majority of questions:
- Develop formal strategies at study programme level, or the entire study board.
- Have informal discussions on how the specific programme aims to develop and conduct video conference teaching.
For example, you can initiate a discussion on the following questions:
- Are there any policies that need to be followed in our study programme?
- Have we decided a preferred route of plan B and even plan C, if the video conference facility happens to fail?
- Who makes sure that the room is ready prior to teaching — the teacher, a student assistant, the secretariat?
- What about exams over video conference, how are they conducted?
- For which type of teaching do we use video conference? Also as a content-level discussion and on how we evaluate.
