Videos in the curriculum: what does the research tell us?

19 August 2015

A Research on Learning and Education Innovation seminar presented by
Dr Negin Mirriahi
(pictured top) and Dr Abelardo Pardo.

Trends in education technology and the introduction of blended learning, flipped classrooms, and massive open online courses gaining momentum in higher education, demand for integrating videos effectively into the curriculum is on the rise. For example, video annotation – which allows students to comment about a video while they are viewing it – changes a learning experience that was previously passive and individual into one that is active and collaborative.

This seminar will present the methods and conclusions of research conducted recently into how students in various contexts (academic and professional development) have engaged with videos, and the annotations and commenting features when integrated as part of the curriculum with different instructional conditions. The findings can inform future curriculum and course design that integrates video in ways that extend social and active learning and provide opportunities for reflective practice and self-regulated learning in blended, flipped and online learning environments.

This seminar will not be available online or recorded.
