  • 1. Dr Chris WillmottDept of Biochemistry,University of Leicestercjrw2@le.ac.ukMaking the Most of BroadcastMedia in Science EducationHEA STEM, Birmingham April 2013University ofLeicesterhttp://tinyurl.com/39zaw6q
  • 2. Outline of session• The value of TV and Radio for teaching• What can I do (legally)? - copyright, ERA & BoB• Knowing what’s on: Introduction to TRILT• Setting up TRILT alerts
  • 3. Central thesis• There is huge pedagogic value in the use ofbroadcast media• Video (and audio) clips:- familiar and engaging medium- to help scene-setting- as discussion starters- to convey factual information- clips more efficient than full programme
  • 4. Obtaining programmes“Titles are available for as little as £125...”... actually much less!E-mail: October 2008
  • 5. Central thesis• There is huge pedagogic value in the use ofbroadcast 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 freelyand legally for use in education, provided you knowwhat you are looking for
  • 6. Copyright• It is important that copyright is honoured• Educational Recording Agency (ERA)• ERA Licence allows for the use of “off-air recordings”provided your usage remains within terms of Licence• see www.era.org.uk for details
  • 7. ERA Licence• Recorded material must include:- the date when the recording was made- the name of the broadcaster- the title of the programme- an exact phrase specifying usage• “This recording is to be used only for educationaland non-commercial purposes under the terms ofthe ERA Licence ”• Recordings can be made on behalf of other licensees(e.g. colleague at another university)• Recordings can be loaned to UK-based students
  • 8. What is not allowed under ERA?• Standard ERA licence does not allow you to uploadmaterial to a VLE unless you can guarantee ALL usersare ONLY able to access it on CAMPUS (not fromhome, definitely not from outside UK)• Open University programmes, including co-productions, are specifically excluded as they operatea separate arrangement• You cannot materially alter a recording (e.g. addingdifferent soundtrack)• Podcasts, downloads and “on demand” services arenot broadcasts and are not covered by ERA
  • 9. What about BoB?• You can upload material to a VLE (for UK use only) ifyou have an ERA+ licence• ERA+ cost approx double standard ERA• The main appeal of ERA+ is now as a gateway toBoB, the national Box of Broadcastsbobnational.net
  • 10. • Despite what it says on the packaging, you MAY usepurchased films etc in their original format foreducational purposes• It is illegal to copy them(e.g. to select out just the clip you want)• You are not allowed to convert to a different format(e.g. WMV)• Remember: You CAN copy and convert off-airrecordings, so even if you possess a DVD of a film itmay be worth setting up a TRILT search for nextbroadcastWhat about DVDs I’ve bought?
  • 11. A Child Against All Odds BBC1, November 14th2006Example uses: (1) Documentary
  • 12. • watch this short clip describing an experiment toinvestigate whether you can smell if someone is afraid• having watched the clip, consider:- what was good about the design of the expt?- what was wrong with the experiment?http://tinyurl.com/terrorface1Example uses: (2) Discussion
  • 13. Brainiac Science Abuse: The Smell of FearSky1, 07:00, 28thJanuary 2009 (http://tinyurl.com/brainiacfear)Example uses: (2) Discussion
  • 14. 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 “sniffed” by same person• all subjects were same gender…but little else is good
  • 15. What was wrong with this expt?• only one “sniff-er”• only three “sweat-ers”• not same person on crane/running/relaxing• distance nose-to-armpit not same in all cases• may have been other explanations for the observeddifferences, e.g.• natural body odour differences between the three• use of deodorant• eating of smelly foods• olfactory fatigue/adaptation may have occurred
  • 16. Design a better version• work with those sitting near you to design abetter experiment looking into whether it is possibleto smell fearhttp://tinyurl.com/armpitsniffing1
  • 17. A more scientific approachPrehn-Kristensen et al (2009), PLoS ONE 4(6): e5987http://tinyurl.com/anxietypaper
  • 18. South Park: “Kenny Dies”(Paramount Comedy Channel, 16thJan 2006)Example uses: (3) Scene-setter
  • 19. TRILT entry: Kenny dies
  • 20. TRILTwww.trilt.ac.uk• Television and Radio Index for Learning and Teaching• Run by the British Universities Film and Video Council• BUFVC also offers a range of other services includinga back-up service for missed programmes
  • 21. TRILT – 2 great serviceswww.trilt.ac.uk offers:• A weekly e-mail alert warning you of any programmescoming up in the next two weeks that match yourkeywords• A searchable database of transmission historycovering broadcasts since 1995, in which allprogrammes are given an ID code• The latter can frequently be used to identifyrecordings available through the BUFVC back-upservice (inc all terrestrial TV since June 1998)
