The present generation of young people who nowadays attend higher education curricula are accustomed to receiving information and knowledge through audiovisual material. Creating a digital story can assist students to learn more on the subject they study as well as to help them overcome obstacles that hinder the presentation of their gained knowledge. The aim of this paper was to examine the use of audiovisual tools in the educational procedure of sport journalism higher education courses. Thirty-eight students in the School of Journalism at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki were asked to present a team sport in a video form. Following the general instructions from the teachers they were able to use any kind of equipment and software they chose to create the audiovisual production. Upon the completion of the projects and based on an embedded mixed research design they were asked to answer a short questionnaire and afterwards to participate in two focus group discussions. The results revealed that the employment of technological tools to create, present, and furthermore express themselves was warmly accepted and the participants stated that it provided a vivid educational environment, which besides enhancing the process of teaching, contributed to the acquisition of skills and their right utilization.

The article tackles the issue of the shift in the model of childbirth taking place in Latin American countries. Based on the analysis of 2012 documentary film Nacer by Jorge Caballero, audiovisual material from organizations dedicated to maternity care, and selected documents and legislation it focuses on values, significances, normative principles and power relations in technological and natural childbirth models. I argue that a shift from the technological paradigm to the natural paradigm of childbirth may contribute to the abolition of patriarchal structures perpetuating violence, the women’s empowerment and the construction of a society supported by the values of respect and love for living beings.

The aim of the current study is to examine the effect of the Traditional Easter Games of Cyprus on the emotional well-being of the participants. Data were collected using a qualitative analysis. It consisted of interviews from 51 participants aged 32–93 years old, and observations were made from audiovisual material of the Traditional Cypriot Easter Games being played by a sample of 20 children aged 6–14 years old and 43 adults aged 18–65 years old. Demographic data were collected by using interviews and analyzed using IBM SPSS program. The observations of the audiovisual material focused on the emotions of the participants and were grouped into prevailing and secondary emotions according to frequency and duration. The results indicate that games produce emotions such as joy, excitement, and euphoria. Emotions such as embarrassment, frustration, and anger were also observed occasionally, specifically in situations of competitiveness and defeat. In addition, the differences and similarities between adults and children were recorded. The findings of the present study extend previous work by demonstrating the positive impact of the traditional games on children’s and adult’s emotional well-being.

Abstract Background Comparative history applied to health education may be a tool to understand institutional key processes within our national health research evolution. In Colombia, first groups of undergraduates interested in research emerged in 1996, being called seedbeds. Universitary Foundation of Health Sciences (FUCS) developed its own seedbeds and created a National Meeting (NM) to join others as network. Objective here is to describe its evolution and perspectives along a 15-year timespan (2004-2019). Methods Ethically approved qualitative hermeneutic-interpretative research using content analysis, compared history and interviews to key figures. Data came from digital files with FUCS policies (statutes, education plans and rules), FUCS High Council meetings acts and audiovisual material directly pertaining the NM; files were condensed using Endnote X9 and NVivo 12 to generate categories, benchmarks and timeline. Results Three stages emerged: a) conception (2004-2009), seedbed was an external construct adopted by FUCS since formative research was embedded in its teaching activities; b) blooming (2010-2014), FUCS offices and areas participated in developing regulations and giving administrative/financial support, 19 seedbeds in 4 faculties were created, and first two NMs were advertised and executed, c) growth (2015-onwards) devoted to “maintenance & consolidation”, with three events, country-wide participants from 57 universities and 370 research projects exhibited (2019). Conclusions The NM reflect FUCS institutional development and progress in teaching and promoting research through organized, dynamic and productive undergraduate research seedbeds. Key messages In Colombia, undergraduate seedbeds are promoted as paramount educational activity; in this endeavour, FUCS national meetings have become centre-piece after 15 years.

The paper researches the use of audiovisual material for formation of aviation subject matter competence of aviation translation students. The research involved a pedagogical experiment aimed at the verification of the hypothesis that systemic use of content-oriented audiovisual material accompanied by a specifically developed complex of training activities enhances students’ knowledge of the professionally relevant subject matter and skills in adequate use of aviation terminology and technical language, which visibly improves students’ professional competence as future translators in the aviation industry. The conducted experiment yielded positive results and confirmed the research hypothesis. As a result of the experimental teaching, the students showed better skills in using aviation terminology, abbreviations and concepts, higher lexicographic awareness, improved their ability to adequately use electronic and printed reference materials when translating aviation texts and to perform translation/interpreting in conformity with grammar, semantic and stylistic norms of radiotelephony communication and aviation standards. The experiment gave convincing evidence that audiovisual material combined with specially designed activities facilitates the formation of the aviation subject matter competence of aviation translation students, which is the basis for their successful professional performance. The audiovisual material and the training activities proved to be effective teaching tools in the framework of a content-oriented structure of aviation translation students’ aviation subject matter competence which was developed by the authors. Though the experimental teaching was done in the course on English-Ukrainian and Ukrainian-English aviation translation, the research results may surely be of relevance for other language pairs as well.

Blood, bone marrow and organ donation is a major issue that concerns all of us. Even though 18 is the age of eligibility to become a donor, awareness should be raised earlier through education. To this end, and given that this issue is marred by prejudice and misconceptions, we developed an educational pack, aimed at senior high school students, which may be delivered in the context of a biology or sociology course. The proposed teaching intervention follows a three-fold approach: (1) First, students are educated on monoclonal antibodies and relevant biotechnology tools and their role in organ transplantation via a board game, (2) Second, we promote empathy using a free writing exercise that employs art prompts and audiovisual material, (3) Third, we assign students with research projects that involve building questionnaires, collecting and analyzing data and producing a science poster to be posted on the school website. Importantly, the aim of this proposed intervention is to educate and to raise awareness while students build on their research, technology and writing skills.

In this quantitative and qualitative study, we present our analysis on the interactions and conversations of ten families during a visit to the Museum of the Universe, at the Planetarium Foundation of the City of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). The study of conversations provides a considerable opportunity to address gaps in our current understanding on how families interact and learn in museum environments. The visits were recorded using a subjective camera, and the audiovisual material was analyzed based on a research protocol that combines theoretical and empirical aspects of the visitors’ museum experience. We identified that most of the interactions during the visit occurred between family members and between them and the exhibition, through interactive activities and moments of contemplation. Parents/caregivers played an important role in maximizing the children's learning opportunities as they interacted and talked about the exhibits. The conversations were related to science topics, especially astronomy, as well as aspects on how to operate the exhibition modules. The results suggest that the Museum of the Universe has become a platform for families to share experiences, discuss and develop specific ideas, knowledge and concepts about astronomy, enriching the group members’ awareness.
