Every student of education knows that reading about education theory in the abstract is a dramatically different experience than applying that knowledge in the classroom. Effective teaching delivery requires an in-depth understanding of expression, tone, body language, and other skills that can be difficult to glean from textbooks and theory alone.
Education in Video tackles this challenge by providing the first-ever online video series developed specifically for training and developing teachers. This multi-volume collection is growing to contain more than 1,650 hours of video that gives education students a reliable way to observe the intricacies of behavior that define effective teaching styles.
Video content includes demonstrations, lectures, documentaries, and primary-source footage of students and teachers in actual classrooms. The collection also contains a wealth of ready-to-use teaching tools, including course, study, and discussion guides, assessment checklists, and themed playlists.
The series features hundreds of experienced professionals in a wide variety of settings and circumstances. In-depth and special-topic videos enable both new and experienced teachers to expand their knowledge and link abstract theories to real-world situations. The collection is also global in scope, providing a comprehensive survey of the teaching profession worldwide and granting access a diverse array of learning environments straight to any computer.
Education in Video: Volume I contains 1,300 hours of content, and features many of the teaching videos most frequently used in university-level education programs. Select titles include:
