Teaching with Video: It's How They Learn

Pew Internet research indicates 70 percent of all college students today have played video games with almost 65 percent of them regular to occasional users. They have grown up using videos as entertainment and they feel comfortable with and engaged by them. Learning how to effectively use video as a teaching method has evolved from snail mailed VHS tapes, to YouTube uploads, and now to a one stop video upload and review site housing both student submissions and instructor uploads. These video tools now include rubrics for peer reviews, instructor evaluations, and many more options for tailoring the use of instructor created assignments housing student presentations, examples of expected outcomes, and videos for engaging students in discussion and collaboration. Students are more likely to attend to teaching methods using modalities with which they are familiar. Thus, the use of video can be one of the most effective ways to increase student engagement and mastery of content and principles. This session will examine methods for using videos as effective teaching strategies in your classrooms, both face-to-face and online.
