CELLPHILMS FOR KNOWLEDGE MOBILIZATION IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM APRIL 27, 2017
UNB HARRIET IRVING LIBRARY,
PRESENTERS: Marc Bragdon, Librarian, UNB and Casey Burkholder, PhD candidate, McGill University
This workshop will explore film as both an adjunct to traditional instruction methods and, in the form of cellphilms, an alternative modality for student projects and knowledge mobilization. Cellphilms (cellphones + films) are videos made on a cellphone, and are easily disseminated from cellphone-to-cellphone, screened in classrooms and at community events, and/or uploaded onto social media. In this workshop, our objectives are to introduce cellphilm method drawing on our own experiences with the method and to interrogate and deepen understandings about the contributions and limitations of integrating cellphones into participatory filmmaking.
