    • Dr Chris Willmott Dept of Biochemistry, University of Leicester cjrw2@le.ac.uk BoB is here to help you with your teaching: Introducing the Box of Broadcasts Leicester’sTeaching-Research Nexus, July 2014 University of Leicester
    • Outline of session • The value of TV and Radio for teaching • Examples uses of TV in teaching • Introduction to Box of Broadcasts • Opportunity to start using BoB • Closing tips and suggestions
    • Using TV for University Teachiing • http://bobnational.net/record/230056
    • Premise • There is huge pedagogic value in the use of broadcast media • Video (and audio) clips: - familiar and engaging medium - to help scene-setting - as discussion starters, and/or - to convey factual information - clips more efficient than full programme • Video and audio material can be obtained freely and legally for use in education, provided you know what you are looking for
    • • Previously… - “Off-air recordings” of TV could be used - DVD had to be registered with AVS - Clips could be converted to WMV files by AVS - Took time (and a fee) • Now… - the old scheme still exists - made simpler using Box of Broadcasts - recording programmes (for streaming) - making clips - organising into playlists - made available to other users Obtaining programmes
    • A Child Against All Odds http://bobnational.net/record/230327 Example uses: (1) Documentary
    • Die Another Day http://bobnational.net/record/230324 http://bobnational.net/record/220597 Example uses: (2) Scene-setter
    • Example (2): Context and use • Introduction to Year 2 lecture on Gene Therapy • Used precisely because it is so wrong • Set scene for more accurate discussion on the approach (including another clip, from Horizon)
    • Example (3): Context and use • Video from Brainiac: Science abuse • Used in a Year 1 tutorial on Experimental Design
    • • Students watch short clip describing an experiment to investigate whether you can smell if someone is afraid • Having watched the clip, they discuss: - what was good about the design of the expt? - what was wrong with the experiment? http://tinyurl.com/terrorface1 Example uses: (3) Discussion
    • Brainiac Science Abuse: The Smell of Fear http://bobnational.net/record/226469 Example uses: (3) Discussion
    • Good aspects of Brainiac expt? • included a negative control (no fear, no sport) • all subjects carried out their activity for same time • all subjects were “sniffer” by same person • all subjects were same gender • …but little else is good
    • What was wrong with this expt? • only one “sniff-er” • only three “sweat-ers” • was not the same person on crane/running/relaxing • distance nose-to-armpit not same in all cases • may have been other explanations for the observed differences, e.g. • natural body odour differences between the three • use of deodorant • eating of smelly foods • olfactory fatigue/adaptation may have occurred
    • Design a better version • work with those sitting near you to design a better experiment looking into whether it is possible to smell fear http://tinyurl.com/armpitsniffing1
    • A more scientific approach Prehn-Kristensen et al (2009), PLoS ONE 4(6): e5987 http://tinyurl.com/anxietypaper
    • The Cell (2): The Chemistry of Life http://bobnational.net/record/222440 Example uses: (4) Full programme
    • Example (4): Context and use • Year 1 double lecture session (video lasts 60 mins) • A beautiful walk through the history of expt that identified DNA as the molecule of inheritance • Students provided with a structured worksheet to aid note-taking during episode
    • Example (4): Full programme • Difficult to fit full episode into lecture slot • Not best use of F2F time? • BoB raises potential for requiring students to watch programme before lecture or tutorial • e.g. The Battle to Beat Polio http://bobnational.net/record/220824 • Flipped classroom • “Viewing lists” as well as “reading lists” for module
    • Example (4): Full programme • e.g. The Battle to Beat Polio http://bobnational.net/record/220824
    • What is BoB? • Box of Broadcasts • Giant TiVo box for education “An online, off-air TV and radio archive & recording service from BUFVC” Image: Sandy Willmott • > 1 million TV & radio programmes • > 60 TV & radio channels (30 day buffer) • All BBC content since 2007 • All staff & students • Clips & playlists

    • Finding programmes • Using the search tool - programmes and clips - playlists (keywords) • Using the programme guide - scrolling around - knowing transmission date & time • Using TRILT (www.trilt.ac.uk) Searching BoB programmes for “Campylobacter” shows up several random ITV programmes… …due to an advert within programmes that includes mention of Campylobacter infections!
    • Finding sections within programme • To find a particular point within programme - scan - transcript search - frame search (not with older recordings)
    • Finding sections within programme • To find a particular point within programme - scan - transcript search - frame search (not with older recordings)
    • Recording programmes • All staff and students are entitled to initiate up to 5 recordings per day, includes: - requesting new programme into archive - making a new clip
    • Recording programmes • All staff and students are entitled to initiate up to 5 recordings per day, includes: - requesting new programme into archive - making a new clip
    • Making clips • Use clipping tool to set <start> and <end> points • Multiple clips can be linked (but only in original order)
    • Making clips • Use clipping tool to set <in> and <out> points • Multiple clips can be linked (but only in original order)
    • Making clips • Use clipping tool to set <in> and <out> points • Multiple clips can be linked (but only in original order) • You cannot clip from within a clip, need to return to the full programme
    • Making playlists • Not currently possible to search for multiple tags at one time • Recommend adding to as many lists as you feel will help you to find clip again
    • Module-specific “viewing list” • Include module code as one of your playlists? • Organise the links on a Blackboard document? • Both?
    • Embedding clips • Straightforward using the link http://bobnational.net/record/230047
