Videolab (EN)


Since the winter term 2012/13, the Department of English Language Education has been operating a professionally equipped video lab, co-funded by the Professional School of Education (PSE) and located in the PSE´s premises at Hausvogteiplatz 5-7.
The video lab can be used for various purposes in the fields of foreign language learning/teaching and professional development. It offers the opportunity to make multiperspective and high quality video-recordings of classes of up to 30 people. The videos can be screened and evaluated  immediately after recording.
Currently, the video lab is primarily used for microteaching activities within seminar groups, for teaching experiments with high school students, for a research project in the Department of Romance Languages, as well as for the project "Best Practice in CLIL". However, it may as well be used for further undertakings (such as collegial coaching, exam training, feedback training) in the future.
By the start of the winter term 2014/15, the video lab will be considerably enlarged and converted into a multi-media learning lab (including rehearsal stage, multi-touch table and more e-learning resources) in cooperation with the Institute of Computer Sciences.
