Film and Media Studies Pedagogy


This article further emphasizes the need for media and film studies pedagogy in higher education. It also surveys the pedagogy debates that occurred in the United States and Britain since the 1960s. The article first outlines the terms of the debate, and then introduces the distinction between surface and deep learning. It also presents personal experience about attempts to study film studies pedagogy through the analysis of film studies textbooks, both in paper and digital form.
