Challenge accepted: bringing a science paper to life through video

- Wits University

Professor Lee Berger accepts a challenge in science communications to turn a science paper into an interesting video lecture.

One of the greatest challenges facing academics and students at this point in history is how to create interesting video content for classes, presentations and online teaching. As part of the series on palaeontology, Lee Berger accepted a challenge from Science Communication officers to create a video from a science paper that at first glance, did not seem to be easily translated into a video lecture and then to take us behind the scenes on this thought processes in the creation of such a video. Lee accepted the challenge and produce a useful video on how to translate any scientific paper into an interesting video lecture. Here he takes us behind the camera while he produces “The Killer Cats of Gladysvale”.
