Using instructional videos to improve physics education
Instructional videos are widely popular on platforms like YouTube. Students watch them for various purposes, including to prepare for exams, to repeat topics they did not understand, or simply for entertainment. However, there is a lot of evidence from recent studies that just watching an instructional video often fails. If they are not embedded in ongoing cognitive activities and designed poorly, they can even do more harm than good for learning physics. The workshop offers learning opportunities for analyzing the quality of instructional videos and for applying guidelines on how to deal with instructional videos in physics education. The main principle is simple: instructional videos are certainly not teaching – but they could become a part of well-designed instruction if teachers use them cautiously.
