Integrating Educational Video Into The Curriculum: How To Use Video To Flip, Differentiate, Assess And Enhance Teaching And Learning In The Classroom – Online

Teachers who use instructional video report that their students retain more information, understand concepts more rapidly and are more enthusiastic about what they are learning. With video as one component in a thoughtful lesson plan, students often make new connections between curriculum topics, and discover links between these topics and the world outside the classroom. 

In this online course you will learn how to locate quality video resources, how to embed them into a variety of applications, have a better understanding of the flipped classroom model, as well as how to use video to assess understanding. There will be four online sessions. 

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • demonstrate understanding of the use and integration of video resources into the curriculum, and the role they play in the teaching/learning process  
  • determine appropriateness of educational video resources for their respective student populations (understanding differentiation) as well as for personal and professional use  
  • develop and apply educational video resources into the curriculum and design learning activities for students (both as a teaching tool and as an assessment tool).  
  • apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills in developing video enhanced lessons
