The Moore Institute Seminar Room G010 Ground floor The Hardiman Research Building


David Kelly

The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with the tools and confidence to create video content using the technology already in their pockets – their smart phones. This content can be utilised for anything from conference, event or course promotion, to effective communication of complex research topics. The session will cover basic composition, photography, videography, interview and editing skills. There will be a brief photo and video break during which participants will put what they’ve learned to the test, followed by critique and feedback. We will also touch on basic principles of GDPR and model release consent to ensure participants’ content can be used and disseminated as required.


Register to attend the workshop on Eventbrite.

Are you a Digital Scholar?

Developing skills with digital technologies can be a challenge for researchers interested in digital and open scholarship.

To help, the Library, in partnership with the Moore Institute, presents a series of informal workshops to share practice-based expertise, know-how, and experience in technologies and methods, that will enhance your experience of newer forms of scholarship.
