10 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: GCSE Science/Biology or equivalent. A-Level Biology or Equivalent Scientific Qualification

Aims/Description: This intensive, week-long module (run during the Easter vacation) covers an introduction to science communication using the medium of video- making. The focus will be to turn technical scientific information into a form accessible to multiple audiences, working within the confines of a brief. A key feature will be developing a project as a group: recognising strengths and appropriate division of labour to implement innovative ideas. Individually, it will develop strengths in presenting ideas and technical skills in shooting footage and editing. The module will be delivered in collaboration with staff from the University of Sheffield Creative Media Team and industry professionals.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Fieldwork, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work
