Online CPD Workshop: Bringing TV Techniques to Teaching – How To Entertain, Engage and Educate!

In this online workshop, you will receive guidance on how to enhance your teaching by using storytelling, videos, interviews and other techniques from the TV industry.

Whether being taught online or face to face, students learn better in a stimulating environment. It is the responsibility of the lecturer to create that environment with their performance, the course content and the positive energy they engender from their audience.

All this can be achieved by using easily learnt techniques from the TV industry. Teaching and being taught can be much more fun – if you know how! TV producer and media skills trainer Julian Dismore will introduce you to different ways to make your lectures and lecture materials more engaging while maintaining the academic standard. Exercises, discussions and role plays will help you hone your approach.
