Each year The Open University rewards its lecturers who’ve made outstanding contributions in their fields. Whether it’s going the extra mile to help students, bringing something new to their module or adding new research, it rewards those developing excellence and innovation in teaching and learning.

As part of these awards, we work with The Open University to create profile videos of the award winners showcasing their stories and what they did to win. These videos are used across lots of Open University channels to showcase their expertise, demonstrate their good practice approach to growing the teaching-learning community and to raise general awareness of their courses of offering.

Due to the educational nature of the video content, we opted for a documentary-style approach to these videos. Typically around the two-minute mark, they’re long enough to convey an important message but short enough to keep viewers engaged. Talking headshots from the lecturers help explain the core message while b-roll and contextual footage helps tell the story. You can watch all our Open University videos below.
