A new student video competition launched by the University's Visual Learning Lab will accept entries until Monday December 14.
Students can win cash prizes, photography equipment or a mini DV camera for making innovative, creative videos about 'The student learning experience at The University of Nottingham'.
A University-wide competition launched this month will give students the chance to tell the story of their learning experience.
Co-ordinated by the Visual Learning Lab (VLL) in the School of Education, the competition invites students to make a video with the title "˜The Student Learning Experience at The University of Nottingham'.
Videos can be a maximum of four minutes in length and can be recorded by any means - from mobile phones to equipment available on short loan from the VLL.
Prof Roger Murphy is Director of the VLL. He said: "We want to recognise that video has become a big part of the way our students communicate and learn. This gives them the chance to tell us the different ways in which they experience learning at the University, while at the same time drawing attention to the work of the Visual Learning Lab."
The competition judges are looking for innovative and creative videos which illustrate the huge range of different learning experiences enjoyed by students across the University. Examples are available to view on the VLL website - www.visuallearninglab.ac.uk .
There are two categories in the competition: one for videos made by a single person, the other for videos made by a group. Both categories feature cash prizes. Photography equipment will also be given as prizes, including a mini DV camera sponsored by www.jigsaw24.com .
