The Center for Educational Innovation (CEI) at UB has been helping faculty create videos for their face-to-face, online, blended, and flipped classes; educating faculty on best practices in creating and integrating videos has been a challenge. This project seeks to create a formal research-based pedagogy to educate faculty in best practices in creating and using videos for various instructional purposes. The video pedagogy will ensure that videos will be educationally meaningful, engaging, and have professional quality. We postulate that developing a formal video pedagogy will empower faculty, resulting in an increase in their comfort level in using video to deliver content, the pedagogical quality of videos created, and increased adoption. In addition to these immediate outcomes, the longer term outcome is to allow faculty to create high quality instructional materials to engage learners and result in improved learning outcomes.
Our project supports SUNY Excels by providing a rubric and professional development plan that will improve the quality of videos produced for instruction. We are confident that our project will improve instructors’ ability to produce higher quality videos, which will in turn improve the quality of education in the SUNY system.
