Creating Video Lessons Through Lecture Redesign

TEE devotes enthusiastic effort in our partnerships with faculty in planning and producing video studio lessons. These differ from screencasting lessons because the faculty member speaks on-camera, and filming takes place in a studio environment (in some cases, a lab or clinical setting).

We have outlined our process for School of Medicine faculty and staff below.

 

Part 1: Kick-off Meeting

Lesson planning begins with a kickoff meeting, where we work with course directors in the School of Medicine to identify which lecture(s) will be transformed into video lessons. This process should ideally begin about 6-8 months before a course launch.

This is a ‘big picture’ meeting that includes the course director and an instructional designer (ID) from the Technology Innovations Group. Once lectures are identified, we will review the overall time commitment (see table, below). We also try to assess if lecturing instructor(s) involved will have adequate time available to commit to the venture.

Part 2: Lecture Redesign Meeting(s)

The Instructional Designer (ID), and instructor who will appear on-camera, meet to discuss the lecture that will be transformed. Emphasis is on pedagogy and lesson design for asynchronous learning. Instructor leaves the meeting with the knowledge necessary to modify any existing lecture materials in preparation for the filming.

Instructor revises the lesson, including changes to the structure, format and visual materials, and can solicit feedback/review from the ID throughout this process.

Part 3: Filming

Roughly a week prior to the filming date, the ID checks in with the instructor to provide guidance and remind the instructor about expectations at the filming session. The ID is also present at the filming session to coach and support the instructor. A producer is present to control the technical aspects.

Part 4: Post-Production

Video footage is edited; this process usually takes 2-3 weeks. When editing is completed, final versions of the videos are shared with the instructor and ID to review and approve.

If any edits are required, they should be limited to situations where the information presented is factually inaccurate. Corrections are made to omit or modify these segments with an emphasis on fixing (without reshooting) video.

The course director identifies a page within the class where videos will be posted, and must approve the videos in order to proceed to next step.

Part 5: Online Integration

Videos are captioned, transcripts are generated, and videos posted as a playlist within the CLE. Instructor makes any additional revisions to the CLE page prior to the start of the course.
