Advice to help you prepare your video presentation:
We don’t expect you to have professional filming equipment, so using a phone or computer is fine. Please review your footage before sending to ensure sound and image quality are sufficient to get your message across. Avoid submitting anything too shaky, loud or inaudible. If you are struggling to get the quality you desire, ask a friend or family member to assist you with filming so you have more space to communicate and engage the viewer.
Content is crucial to your video submission, so make sure your message comes across clearly within the three minute timeframe. Use real-world examples and evidence whenever possible and avoid straying too much from the relevant topic. This is your chance to really stand out, so let your passion for teaching shine through by using creative approaches to filming. The selection panel need to see that you feel inspired by your teaching subjects. Please note, anything that exceeds the recommended time for your video will not be assessed, so practice ahead of time if you’re worried about the video length.
Please ensure your video is clear, concise and viewer friendly. The selection panel will want to see you speaking in an environment, and not just relying on a power point presentation.
Imagine you are in front of a class full of students. How would you speak to them and engage with them? Your effective communication skills should come across in your video submission. Also consider your environment and personal presentation when filming. How do you want to portray yourself to the viewer? Take some time to really think through your plan before filming and spend time analysing the video afterwards before submitting the final product. This is your chance to make a strong and lasting impression – good luck!
