Film-clip fun: teaching and learning with ethnographic video

Primary authors

  • Emma FORD (Royal Anthropological Institute)


Join us for a showcase! Take part in educational activities and discussions based on an ethnographic film-clip. Build learning with film at the centre, not the edge. Come away with a practical example to use with your class, lecture, tutorial or seminar group. Find out how to take film further. Showcasing a teaching resource from ‘Ethnographic Video Online, Teaching Edition’, we will consider the possibilities for using film in anthropology education. Introductory anthropology courses in schools, universities, extra-curricular clubs and online platforms can all benefit from this. What different types of films are there and how can we use them? How can we integrate ethnographic film with the study of texts and theory? What barriers dissuade teachers and lecturers from using film? How can we make ethnographic films quicker and easier to use for teachers and learners? What possibilities do mobile technology and video streaming offer? What might we be able to do with film in the future?
