      • Likes the way films are shown in the lecture
      • However, the showing of films might give the impression that the course can be taken lightly
      • Temperature should be set higher
      • More breaks as lecture is 4 hours long (including 2 hours of movie screening)
      • Should change venue for the two hours of film screening as seats get uncomfortable after a while
    j.ed.ka

      • Films have highlighted concepts that might be missed out unconsciously
      • No con in showing films at all

    • Wanting to gain sufficient knowledge(Need)
    • Able to critique film (Appreciation)

    Four Pleasures of Student j.ed.ka
  • Interview with Lecturer
    • Anticipating (Before)
      • Hope to make students better appreciate the medium of films – both visual and audio elements – intelligently, imaginatively and creatively
    • Anticipating (During)
      • Students to look at original text after having their interest sparked by the film shown
    j.ed.ka
  • Interview with Lecturer
    • Connecting, Interpreting and Reflecting
      • The use of multimedia make the conveying of message especially with regards to visual images easier
      • Elicit interest in students
      • However, when the film is on a novel adaptation, the film oversimplifies what I try to convey
      • Students who walk into the LT late disturbs my train of thoughts and takes away students attention
    j.ed.ka
  • Interview with Lecturer
    • Recounting
      • Would continue to use multimedia elements since it is a need in a film course
      • Would definitely recommend other lecturers to do so if it suits their pedagogy

  • Problems/Solutions Noted
    • 1) Students’ attention span
      • Problem :
        • Students are dozing off before break
        • Frequent changing of media
      • Possible Solution(s) :
        • Break could be given at the 45mins mark instead.
        • Lecturer can also have some small exercise to wake everyone during break or during lecture.
        • Instead of using just DVD, clips of video or pictures can be in slides to elaborate a point if it is possible
    j.ed.ka
  • Problems/Solutions Noted
    • 2) Students’ expectations
      • Problem:
        • Most of the time it is one way communication
      • Possible Solution(s)
        • Although a few questions were posed to the students, only one will reply after a few minutes of silence. Could reward students if anyone answer it correctly. Some small exercises can be given to test students knowledge and learning process
    j.ed.ka
  • Problems/Solutions Noted
    • 3) Entertainment value
      • Problem:
        • Lecture slides were noted to be rather dull.
        • Screening of Film after Lecture at 4pm is in the same theater
      • Possible Solution(s)
        • More pictures or short clips of video can be played directly from PPT slides.
        • A shift to a more comfortable seats and a new venue can make watching film more enjoying.
    j.ed.ka
  • Problems/Solutions Noted
    • 4) Noise’
      • Problem:
        • Lecture theater is a tad cold
        • Limited space for leg, tend to hit someone knees when laid back
      • Possible Solution(s)
        • decentralizing the air con control system
        • replacing the air con with auto humid or temperature control ones
        • Bigger leg space should be given. Taller students often feel uncomfortable

  • Problems/Solutions Noted
    • 4) Noise’
      • Problem:
        • Lecture theater is a tad cold
        • Limited space for leg, tend to hit someone knees when laid back
        • Late comers entering from the front doors is found to be distracting to both lecturer and students
      • Possible Solution(s)
        • decentralizing the air con control system
        • replacing the air con with auto humid or temperature control ones
        • Bigger leg space should be given. Taller students often feel uncomfortable
        • 2 front doors can be locked when the lesson starts and open during break and when lesson ends
    j.ed.ka
  • Problems/Solutions Noted
    • 5) Disruptive behaviour
      • Problem:
        • No monitor for DVD playback. Lecturer have to look up to the screen to seek for the current moment.
        • Due to limited seats, students having a ‘picnic’ behind the lecturer theater, with water boiler and adapter around and chattering.
      • Possible Solution(s)
        • Monitor screen can be implemented to view what’s playing in DVD while facing the students
        • Shift to a bigger Lecture Theater
        • Lecturer can actually organize the seats better. E.g. ask students that came early to sit at the back and those late comers in the front.
        • Lecturer can also order students not to sit on the stairs.
