Media Training and Production
Media background as a music journalist for Local BBC Radio - short audio feature.
Workshops - example of a radio workshop outcome, working with mental health client groups through CAMHS in East Sussex. This is intergenerational media advocacy.
Trainer philosophy - an audio interview with Doug whilst lead trainer with Radio Regen in Manchester - part of a project that created an ongoing permanent license for a community radio station in Salford. Doug explains his teaching method and philosophy.
How I Like to Teach - three part TV studio interactive seminar with video students at Brighton Uni - this is how all classes/workshops are run - in circle time and fully interactive - these students were invited to ask me anything and the three videos here are a very good demonstration of how I work.
Includes use of social media in teaching; mentoring, contact time and feedback; group dynamics including Belbin's theory; 'relaxed' teaching style; peer to peer learning in HE; three stages of teaching production practice; Dougagrams, and the 'lovely but useless' model; "why are so many production ideas so rubbish?"; the value of pre-production; the value of formative and summative feedback; being a facilitator rather than a teacher; the comfort zone model explained
Part Two: why I first decided to teach; the influence from martial arts in my style; role play and debating; getting students to respond/participate; the convex/concave model of critical thinking; having an unconventional teaching style including circle time and the talking stick principle
