Print, Video, or the Ceo - The Impact of Media in Teaching Leadership with the Case Method

Case teaching has the potential to involve students in complex decision settings, enhancing their identification with protagonists facing difficult challenges. This article explores the impact of teaching a printed leadership case study with and without the appearance of the CEO in class—by video or in person. Our investigation shows, via qualitative and quantitative means, that the leader’s presence, even through video, significantly affects student engagement and can substantially enhance impressions of leadership effectiveness. We offer implications for teachers and propose future research directions.

Collaborating for Success: Classroom teachers and video specialists

"How video teachers and classroom teachers can work together to achieve powerful learning through student video production."

Video production is a richly layered activity that engages learning and skills on many levels. It is a form of experiential learning with attention-grabbing moments, drama, and heightened emotions that create the distinct memories that are essential for longlasting learning. It's an inherently multidisciplinary activity. Scripting and plot development involves language-arts skills; lighting and white-balancing cameras prior to shooting involves knowledge of color temperature theory; credit sequences draw on graphic-design skills; and sound editing requires knowledge of music. In addition, students learn a communication process that requires planning, time management, teamwork, and of course, technology.

(VUB Press), edited by the university’s Vice-rector Research Jan Cornelis and Marleen Wynants, Operational Director of CROSSTALKS.

Handbook on Digital Video and Audio in Education - Creating and using audio and video material for educational purposes

This is a comprehensive guidebook for those who consider creating and using audio and video material for educational purposes in higher and further education.

The Handbook contains over a hundred pages of information about all aspects of using digital video and audio in education, including links to other useful resources. It is directed to both new and experienced users and contains theoretical, empirical and practical chapters that help you in deciding why, when and how to use digital video and audio in education. Whether you have existing material or want to create new videos, this handbook is a Must-Have!

With practical tips and guidelines to help you prepare, record and edit a video, software introductions, best practices, digital video databases, streaming media, links and a project web site: http://www.videoaktiv.org.

Table of contents: 

1. How to use this handbook
2. Table of contents
3. Why I use video with my students
4. Thinking about educational video
5. Using existing material
6. Creating new material
7. Tips for producing video
8. Distributing the material
9. How to acquire the necessary skills
10. Further resources
11. Bibliography

This handbook is yours, so of course you decide how to make the best possible use of it. However, we tried to conceive it in such a way that it can be used in the most flexible way, according to what we expected could be your individual needs.

Of course, you can start reading at the front cover until you reach the back. However, you can also navigate through it using the Table of Contents, which we hope is sufficiently self-explanatory so that you will find topics and issues that are directly responding to your searches.

You can also just read that part that meets your immediate need: if you are looking for a justification for the use of video in education, then the first chapter “Why I Use Video With My Students” answers your questions. If your institution or department is investigating the possibilities of using video, than “Thinking About Educational Video” may give you pedagogical ammunition in the decision making process.

For individual lecturers and course creators, the following more practical chapters may proof more useful: “Using existing material”, “Creating New Material”, “Tips for Producing Video” and “Distributing the Material”. These handholding chapters are useful if you have the basic skills for video production, distribution and use but you are looking for additional advice. If you are starting from scratch, you may consider consulting “How to Acquire the Necessary Skills”.

The final reference chapters contain “Further resources” on production of (streaming) video, and on existing archives of educational videos, as well as a bibliography.

Digital video in the classroom: Integrating theory and practice

Abstract: This article is intended to help teacher educators, classroom teachers, and administrators interested in educational technology acquire a firm theoretical as well as practical foundation upon which to introduce nonlinear digital video into their undergraduate or graduate instruction; discover a time-tested, step-by-step process for introducing creative hands-on videography projects into their respective teacher preparation programs or classrooms; and recognize why it is critically important for preservice and in-service teachers to establish a personal underlying pedagogical philosophy for infusing video technology into classroom instruction.
