Aims, contents and method of the course

Students will gain insight into the technical side of creating and editing various audiovisual media and thereby learn to create content themselves with high technical standards. The scope ranges from field research to science communication and focuses essentially on formats, conventions and technical aspects, less on the content itself.

In a theoretical part (Block I) the students will be familiarized with the technical equipment (cameras, microphones, accessories and software). This is followed by a practical part (Block II), in which students work in groups to create various media themselves (podcast/audiobook, interview, video lecture/presentation/vlog, documentary…), which consists of creating a “plan/script” and the actual recording itself. The created material is reviewed and discussed, followed by another practical part (Block III), in which the students edit the recorded raw material and bring it into a publishable form.

Note: All single projects will be short versions of only a few minutes of content to keep the workload manageable.

Assessment and permitted materials

Attendance is mandatory in the course. Partial achievements include active participation in the creation of the media as well as the independent individual processing of three projects with the corresponding written documentation of the editing process.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Performance is assessed by means of a point system. At least 50% of the maximum number of points is required to complete the course positively.

Examination topics

Reading list

The provision of all data (media, slides, literature), the communication in the course and also the submission of the work is done via MOODLE.
