Videos in Teaching

Videos in Teaching – How can we best exploit the great potential of teaching videos?

May 21, 12:15 – 13:15, HPF G 6

Videos are omnipresent and are a very useful way to make teaching more attractive and effective. They present more information than do mere image and audio. Progressions or movement and interaction sequences etc. (e.g., how ice clouds build up) are easier to portray. Because the video medium is close to reality and so vivid, it can transmit decisive experiences indirectly where a direct approach is not possible.

Creating teaching videos requires more effort than creating other media, and thus only the most suitable areas should be selected for their deployment. For maximum effect videos should relate closely to the student environment and focus on selected learning objectives. In this session successful examples will be presented, along with checklists and tools for efficient project workflow involving a justifiable amount of effort.

Flipped Classroom

Flipped Classroom – More scope for classroom teaching via flexible transmission of knowledge

April 14, 12:15 – 13:15, HG E 41

Experience at ETH and other universities is showing that the “flipped classroom” approach to teaching has advantages over the traditional lecture. The idea of the flipped classroom is that students acquire the knowledge content of the course in advance via independent study (the “flip”) so that time in the classroom can be used for consolidation and generally interactive activities. For the independent study phase students are given access to videos and other digital technologies, with flexibility as to how and when they use them.

In the classroom faculty and assistants can monitor the learning process more closely. Here the physical teaching space also plays an important role, and moveable furniture can also aid group work and other interactive phases. At this session faculty will report on their own experience of the flipped classroom and how it contributed to the development of their teaching.
