Prof. Anja Pfennig
HTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences, Germany
Anja Pfennig was born in Büdelsdorf, Germany in 1970. She studied Minerology at the Rheinische Friedrich Wilhelms-University Bonn, Germany, where she graduated in 1997. Her Ph.-D. in the field of ceramic moulds for liquid metal casting was earned in 2001 from the Friedrich Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. She then worked for Siemens Energy in charge of ceramic shields for stationary gas turbines
and transferred to Berlin in 2008 where she conducted scientific research on the oxidation of high temperature materials and corrosion behavior of steels used in Carbon Capture Techniques. 2009 she became full professor at the Applied University Berlin, HTW where she currently teaches material science for engineering students. For 7 years her teaching and teaching
related research focusses on matters concerning first year students. She successfully produces lecture videos using the peer-to-peer approach and implements these in her first year courses as study source in inverted classroom scenarios. Since 2017 she hosts the HTW Berlin youtube channel “material science HTW Berlin”:
https://www.youtube.com/c/Werkstofftechnik-HTWBerlin. The impact of lecture films on study behavior, continuity and study results is her main interest as lecturer and researcher. Along with the shift from teaching to learning Anja Pfennig adapted the blended learning teaching approach in
undergraduate material science education and established a new cumulative assessment method that fit to both, classroom and distant learning. The combination of multimedia, scientific lectures and guided assignments aligned with the courses` learning outcome allows for students to gain confidence in transferring theoretical background to real engineering
Making of - Successfully Producing Peer-to-Peer Lecture Films
Lecture videos are more and more implemented in
higher education to be used widely by students
providing an audio and visual stimulus. To attract
students and become a fully accepted learning
material these videos need to be of a certain
standard. An important factor to the success of
these videos is to involve students directly into
the concept and making-of (peer-to-peer approach).
The peer-to-peer approach is an important aspect in
terms of project success, quality of the content and
lecture video quality because students` needs and
their perspective on teaching material are directly
included in the videos. To encourage lecturers this
Plenary Speakersss presentation provides a short
guidance to look at basic needs and requirements of
the lecture film production and “just get started”.
Good lecture videos may successfully be produced
with low threshold.
Key words: lecture video, peer-to-peer,
making-of, film equipment, KISS, inverted classroom
