From the Cover

moving images coverMOVING IMAGES: Effective Teaching with Film and Television in Management will inspire academics, teachers, and trainers to use film and television in their classrooms and shows them how it is done. It brings together respected international scholars who recount their experiences of how they have used moving images in their classrooms (including distance learning) with their explanations of why they chose this method of teaching and how they put their intentions into action.

The book also illustrates how particular subjects are taught using inspirational and educational film and television segments to demonstrate the range of opportunities that these media offer. Finally, this book considers some of the practical issues in using film and television in the classroom such as copyright, technology and the representation of reality and drama in films.

This is a 'practical, how to' book that answers the questions of instructors who have considered using film and television in their classrooms, but until now have shied away from doing so. The opportunity to see how others have used film effectively breaks down psychological barriers and makes it seem both a realistic and an effective teaching tool.
