Project objective 11: Explanatory videos for continuing and further education

In addition to case histories, short explanatory videos are a particularly suitable and proven didactic method for conveying complex contents and contexts in further education and training. This approach is particularly suitable for the VEMAS project because the overriding concern of VEMAS: "Understanding behavioural problems of people with disabilities - seeing the person - changing the perspective" can only succeed if all measures, methods and surveys are related to each other. In this respect, the major didactic challenge is to make the services and materials as accessible and comprehensible as possible.

In the VEMAS project, we want to appropriately prepare the general principles presented in the handout/brochure (project objective 1) and the considerations, instruments and methods, application examples and case histories associated with the various intellectual achievements in about 20 explanatory videos, each lasting about 7 minutes. Thus, a total of about 120 to 150 minutes of video material should be provided. Drawings and other graphical representations that illustrate certain terms, concepts, methods and tools or theoretical contexts are suitable for this purpose, but also interview excerpts, statements by experts on their own cause, statements by staff, team leaders, facility managers, parents, physicians, etc.

The explanatory videos are integrated into the overall didactic concept of the training material that is to be developed. In addition, there may be ten expert interviews of about 30 to 45 minutes on more specific topics. References to these will be made both in the planned handout/brochure and in the online course on the project homepage, as well as in the instructions and explanations for the individual materials. Particular attention will be paid to the usage  language and graphical/symbolic representations that are as easy to understand as possible. As with all project results, a translation or at least subtitles for the videos in English and French is planned for international dissemination. We assume that in the context of further education and training, the method of explanatory videos will play a significant role in the successful dissemination and implementation of the VEMAS innovation.
