On April 1, 2019 Dr. Toru Nagahama joined OEDO as an assistant Prof. to develop online courses by working with staff and teaching assistants (TAs). To increase the TAs video editing skills, he organized a video-editing workshop on May 22, 2019 in the OEDO’s office in the West 9 bldg. Ten new OEDO TAs participated in this workshop. The workshop objective was to learn video editing by making a short video about Tokyo Tech former Professor Seiichi Tejima using pre-recorded video footage and Adobe Premier Pro editing software.
In this workshop, the jigsaw method was applied and the participants were organized into “jigsaw” groups. They were then reorganized into “expert” groups containing one member from each jigsaw group. The members of the expert group worked together to learn how to do cut-editing, insert texts, and add effects, then return to their jigsaw groups to share their learning. In this way, the work of the expert groups was easily disseminated to the all participants with each participant taking responsibility for sharing a piece of the puzzle. After the all groups finished video editing, the videos were viewed in order to exchange feedback between groups.
After the workshop, TAs commented on the workshop in a questionnaire and a few quotes are noted below.
Although some of the skills taught in the workshop were skills that I already use, I discovered many useful shortcuts and time saving techniques that will help increase the efficiency of my future editing work.
A very useful and enjoyable workshop. Looking forward to participating in future ones.
In general, I had a good time and could learn the contents, thank you!
That was awesome!
