Film making in second language acquisition

Alexandra Ludewig
The University of Western Australia
Since 1997, students in the Language Departments at The University of Western Australia (UWA) have been working with film making as part of their assessment. In this presentation I would like to introduce the underlying concept behind using short film making in language teaching by using the experiences within the Department of German at UWA as an example. Thereby I will elaborate on the underlying methodology, the rationale, the course objectives, the implementation as well as the evaluation process as a paradigm for a possible wider up take. While the data and the research findings themselves are a powerful persuasion for a generic implementation of this teaching and learning tool, the short film project also has some interesting side effects which are worthy of further consideration.
