Julian Windscheid (doctoral student at the Department of Media and Communication Management), together with Bernadette Gold (Technische Universität Dortmund, Professur für Schulpädagogik und Allgemeine Didaktik für Primarstufe und Sekundarstufe I), has published an anthology entitled "360° Videos in Empirical Social Research" with SpringerVS. The book deals with the topic in an interdisciplinary way and contains the view of various social science disciplines in order to stimulate as multi-layered a discussion as possible for the topic of 360° videos in research and teaching.
The contributions deal, among other things, with possibilities of data acquisition by means of videography as well as potentials for the integration of 360° video content in social science research and teaching. For example, it explains how 360° videos can be produced and how they can be integrated into teaching-learning scenarios in university teaching.
Thematically, the book enters an area that has so far been under-lit, although the technology behind it can open up great potential for research and teaching in the future, as users can freely select image sections using VR glasses and content can be used in a correspondingly different way than before.
The anthology also includes a contribution by Britta Gossel (former staff member of the Department of Media and Communication Management; now professor at the University for Sustainable Development Eberswalde).
