Concurrent Session 5A Professional Development; “And yet it moves”: on the usefulness and practicality of video engagement

We traffic in press releases and photographs while at the same time idealising the multi-million dollar Attenborough documentaries as the pinnacle of science communication.

But there’s a lot of territory between the two. Surely we can fill the gap with something effective and exciting. We may not have the budgets but we have the technology. After all many of us carry HD camera with internet connection with us 24/7 and have the software to edit the resulting footage installed on our laptops.
