Abstract

This chapter reports on a study which experimented with the use of studentcreated digital videos in an undergraduate English for Communication module taken by engineering students at a university in Oman. The aim of this study was to provide a task for students to accomplish that would engage them in authentic communication. The chapter provides a description of the intervention used, and illustrates - through students' presentations, written reports, interaction arising from group work, excerpts from the tutor's reflective journal, and student perspectives gathered through focus groups - how students' motivation, confidence and communication improved during the video-creation process.
