Social Documentary as a Pedagogic Tool

For this project, which involved nine countries, Julian McDougall worked with three English secondary schools implementing ethnographic social documentary-making in the Citizenship curriculum on the theme of European identity. Participating students’ films were screened at the Lisbon Documentary Film Festival in October 2012\

Europa 2111, as a EU Lifelong Learning Programme Project, developed a pedagogic methodology for social video-documentary making in the context of an ethnographic approach to reflecting on European identities.
