Terrestrial Research on Ecosystems & World-wide Education & Broadcast || An Innovative Graduate Training Program
The first episode of a webseries featuring TerreWEB PI Suzanne Simard and TerreWEB Students. Suzanne and her students explain some of the science behind an observation of forester and author Peter Wohlleben (‘The Hidden Life of Trees’). More about the project at www.intelligent-trees.com
The following three videos are the result of a Smartphone Filmmaking Workshop. The workshop meant to supply TerreWEB Scholars with the necessary skills to document their research with the equipment they have easily on hand: Their own smartphones. These videos were produced as exercise following (only) a two hour instructional seminar.
These videos are examples of TerreWEB students ongoing research and how we scientists can use video as a powerful means to communicate what we do.
These videos were created, filmed and edited by graduate students at UBC during the TerreWEB Video Production Workshop, Sept. 14-16, 2012 with Randy Olson. Special thanks to Dan McKinney (UBC School of Journalism) for being the Technical Lead and providing so much support during this workshop! See the 5 videos below.
Also, read a great synopsis and review of the workshop from Randy Olson on his blog, The Benshi.
