New Ocean Science video tutorials – created for students by students!

Under the Teach2Learn project, master students have produced a new series of video tutorials in the course Ocean Science (BIO325), led by professor Anne Gro Vea Salvanes at the Department of Biology, UiB. The tutorials act as additional teaching support to introduce fellow students to sampling methods and instruments used to collect data for marine research.

Students Gaute Seljestad, Karoline Viberg and Synne Myhre Sunde filming a scene for their video tutorial What can we learn from using acoustics on-board a research ship and what do we use it for? UiB, Nov. 2017.

With guidance from the TE2LE team, seven groups of students produced video tutorials to answer the following questions:

On December 6th, students, professors, and administrative staff were invited to watch the video tutorials while enjoying some pizza and softdrinks.

The audience gave points to each video based on creativity and how well the message comes through, and of course there was a price for the highest scoring video.

On December 7th, Anne-Laure Simonelli conducted the last activity of the Teach2Learn project, i.e. the follow-up reflection activity where students, in groups, are encouraged to share what they experienced during the project and to reflect on their learning. The collected data will be used to evaluate the Teach2Learn activities and to investigate active learning in biology through this innovative pedagogical practice.
