Creating Video Lessons Through Lecture Redesign

TEE invests enthusiastic effort into our partnerships with faculty in planning and producing video lessons in the studio. These differ from screencast 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.

Instructor Touch Points in the Video Lesson Process

 

 

Part 1: Kick-off Meeting for the Course

Lesson planning begins with a kickoff meeting for all videos in the course, where we work with course directors in the School of Medicine to identify which lectures 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 directors and instructional designers from the Technology Innovations Group. Once lectures are identified, we will review the overall time commitment (see table, below). We also work with course directors to ensure that lecturing instructors can commit adequate time to developing their lessons for video.

 

Part 2: Lesson Redesign Meeting(s)

The Instructional Designer, and the instructor who is developing the content for a lesson, meet to discuss how the lecture will be transformed for video. The meeting focuses on evidence-based pedagogical strategies for video and asynchronous learning as well as establishing the project timeline. The instructor leaves the meeting with the knowledge necessary to develop and modify lecture materials for the filming.

After the meeting, the instructor makes revisions, including changes to the structure, format and visual materials. The instructional designer and the Technology Innovations team are always available for additional feedback or meetings  throughout this process. 

 

Part 3: Filming

Roughly a week prior to the filming date, the instructional designer checks in with the instructor about the lesson and provides reminders and tips for a successful filming session. The instructional designer is also present at the filming session to coach and support the instructor. 

 

Part 4: Post-Production

The editing process usually takes 2-3 weeks. After some technical reviews, the final versions of the videos are shared with the instructor to review and approve. Edits are 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. 

 

Part 5: Online Integration

Captions and transcripts for the videos are generated, and the videos are posted as a playlist within the CLE
