Aims and objectives of the project

Our fundamental maxim is to move education in terms of internationalisation. We aim to foster students’ and teacher educators’ intercultural competence within the concept of Internationalisation at home. We consider that internationalisation can no longer be the privilege of a few people as well as political, economic and social changes with regard to the process of globalisation lead to everyone’s need to broaden their horizons regarding inter- and transculturality. Filmmaking in this context seems to support intercultural learning as filmmakers are asked to reflect the “reality” through the camera lens.

Which steps we are going to take during the course of the project term:

We draw up a definition of the students’ film format as currently different terms for example “student-created video”, “educational video” or “learning video” are applied without theoretical foundation in media studies and didacts.

We develop assessment criteria for the produced videos in order to consider filmmaking as an alternative test performance in higher education.

We measure the impact of filmmaking on students’ intercultural competence through the qualitative analysis of the produced videos.

We develop an adaptable digital course concept in interdisciplinary collaboration that fosters students’ and teacher educators’ international and intercultural learning through cross-border filmmaking.
