This course is given to 2nd-year Spanish students and is mostly in the format of face-to-face classes. Most learners are still in the process of forming conceptual knowledge. Every week a new topic is covered, for which students prepare by watching an Interactive Video.
The Interactive Video may contain open questions, multiple choice questions and reflection questions which together support an activating learning environment, as well as promoting students’ interaction with study materials. In addition the materials provide an opportunity for learners to visualise/conceptualise material that has been discussed or assigned in class.
Students answer questions which check knowledge, invite reflection, or ask for argumentation of a particular topic.
Multiple choice and knowledge-check questions ask students to remember and understand concepts. Reflection questions demand students to demonstrate application of knowledge and evaluation of concepts.
Students are required to participate in 80% of the questions in the interactive materials, though not necessarily all with correct answers. Questions in the video correspond with topics covered in class.
"In just 15 minutes I can address every student’s comment on a 1.5 hour video." - Dr. Anna Escofet Vilá, Instructor, University of Amsterdam
Using other homework material such as Interactive Document or Interactive Audio to correspond with lectures could enrich students’ learning experience.
