Filmmaking by Students
Some ideas and concepts we assume regarding filmmaking by students:
– context-based creation of videos
– educational purpose
– based on constructivist learning theories
– transforming acquired concepts and principles of a particular discipline in the form of a film
– critically questioning specific problems of a particular discipline through a research question
– producing a creative film to communicate the own understanding of the world

Some ideas and concepts we assume regarding intercultural learning:
– following Liddicoat & Scarino’s theory on intercultural language teaching and learning: „For us, an intercultural perspective can be understood as the lens through which the nature, purpose, and activity of language teaching and learning are viewed, and the focus which students develop through their language learning. The intercultural in language learning is then a way of viewing the nature of language, culture, and learning as they come together in the acquisition of a new language.“ (Liddicoat/Scarino 2013: 6)
