MAKING THE CUT (HMKN 431)
Video is a contemporary tool for effectively conveying knowledge to a broad spectrum of viewers. Undergraduate Human Kinetics students are introduced to video production as a portal to translate their learning through knowledge translation directly into the community.
Students acquire video production skills to produce professional, educational videos that highlight how exercise is the best medicine for treating chronic disease in an aging population.
Peer and instructor evaluations are completed throughout the process and students receive ongoing consultation and support from the Media Centre Studio staff. Those videos—“Making the Cut”—are made available through UBC’s online TV website, ubco.tv.
