Visual Storytelling with Video

Visual storytelling is getting more and more important in the academic world. A videoclip can make complex information accessible for a broad or targeted audience. The combination of auditive and visual information is a powerful tool to make a connection between the viewer and your subject.

Millions of people upload videos daily on any possible subject. But why is one video informative and entertaining while another is forgotten immediately? Making an effective video is a structured process of design, creativity, and technique.

In this practical module, you will be working in a group on a short videoclip. During this module we will dive into all the aspects of making a videoclip like choosing a suitable subject, making mood boards and story boards, working with scripts and of course the technical aspects. We will also be discussing the different styles of video and how they relate to their content.



    Kees Oerlemans is an IT & education specialist with expertise in multimedia, who supports teachers in creating digital learning materials. He has a background in education, visual arts, video, and photography.


    The last session of this module is used for viewing the finished video’s and formulating constructive feedback. We will be using the different anchors in the design process as criteria for evaluation.


    •  At least one of the group members needs to have access to a laptop for editing
    • Suggestions for free editing software will be provided
    • You don’t need a special video camera; your smartphone can be used as camera and microphone.


    This module comprises five seminars, which will take place on Wednesday evenings from 18.30 to 21.00 hrs.

    The Honours Academy believes that the best learning happens when we collaborate in the same workspace, so your physical presence is required! If you know that you cannot attend one or more sessions, pick a different course so you can get the most out of this experience with your fellow students.
