A Brief Intro to my Research Goals
In a globalized world, there is an ever-increasing need to deliver education online. As a Professor of Film & Television, I am interested in developing methods to deliver film courses that extend beyond the physical classroom. More specifically, my proposed research topic, “Developing a Learning Model for Online Film Education,” is intended to contribute to existing online education theory, further focusing on the specialized area of film education. I would like to explore the possibilities and challenges of developing an online learning model for film education. The proposed research will attempt to determine the adaptability of curriculum elements to the online format, it will evaluate which learning theories will be best suited to online film education, and it will examine the implications of cross cultural and international learning. The research will draw upon knowledge and resources from a variety of faculties, and hence requires an interdisciplinary approach.
