Guidelines for creating a virtual poster and audio presentation for the poster
A virtual poster is similar to a traditional paper poster. Virtual posters and accompanying audios will be uploaded to the IFTE-2021 official website and the Forum repository and will be available for electronic viewing at all times for every participant. Please note that posters are submitted only in electronic form. A virtual poster should be presented in English. When creating a virtual poster, please do not change the title and the team of authors.
Guidelines for making an audio presentation for the virtual poster
An audio presentation for the virtual poster is a unique opportunity to voice and comment on your research results. When making a presentation, it is not recommended to read the information included in the poster. The aim of the audio file is to specify and clarify the methodology, analysis methods, research stages, as well as to elaborate on the obtained data. This approach aims to generate a lively academic discussion in the virtual mode.

John Schultz, PhD, Director of Video & Digital Media Studio at the University of Southampton and Director of the Online Master's Program in Pedagogy, specializes in online and video learning. Over 10 years ago, he developed the University of Southampton Master's online program in Pedagogy. His speech at the Forum will focus on changing the attitude of teachers towards video technologies in education and changing the format of recording lectures from “professor on stage” to “professor as a talk show host”.
The multimedia studio of Professor John Schultz was founded in 2010. At the moment it is a studio equipped with lighting, professional cameras and editing tools. John Schultz has created many teaching and learning videos. His video series on basic research methods in education is used by research students, academics and universities around the world.
Professor Schultz is interested in social psychology and, in particular, social cognition, therefore his scientific interests are focused on the role of cognitive processes in understanding the world.
John is currently working on a joint e-learning project with academics at Kazan Federal University, developing online education programs for Masters in Pedagogy.
At the VII International Forum on Teacher Education, John Schultz will present his report “Video in Education: from“ smart guy on stage ”to“ talk show host ”. Where to go?" Two weeks before the start of the Forum, a scientist from the University of Southampton gave a thesis about what will be discussed in his speech.
“In the 1990s, the image of a professor at the center of attention of an audience of attentive students and giving a lecture was heavily criticized,” John said. “For some, this approach promotes passive learning and prevents them from developing much-needed skills in the 21st century. Over the past 30 years, little has changed: lectures continue to dominate higher education. But it's worth noting that other teaching approaches have also become popular, such as blended learning, flipped classrooms, and online learning. Already quite often we hear that teachers write down some elements of their lectures in advance and invite students to familiarize themselves with it in advance, thus allocating more time during personal meetings for discussion and interaction.
I will present to the Forum participants how video materials in education have changed over 30 years and how noticeable the focus shift is when the format changes from the pre-existing Professor as a Screen Star to Professor as a Talk Show Host.
