Anderson, Jonathan Mark ORCID: 2013. Active learning through student film: a case study of cultural geography. Journal of Geography in Higher Education 37 (3) , pp. 385-398. 10.1080/03098265.2013.792041

This study contributes to the debate over the potential of film as a pedagogical aid. It argues that integrating film production into the assessment of undergraduate modules secures advantages for student learning: students connect their ideas more explicitly to “real world” examples; new voices and understandings are introduced to communication, and broader skills in storyboarding, narration and digital technologies are developed. The use of film also emphasizes the need for a holistic marking strategy to capture the creativity encouraged by this medium. The study suggests that integrating film into assessment offers a “eureka” moment in the student learning experience.
