As students and faculty increasingly embrace video as a teaching and learning resource, libraries are often left to grapple with what kind best meet the interest and learning expectations of their constituents. Though there is mutual acceptance of video as a tool and resource, faculty and students have unique behavior and preferences regarding the medium. As various types of platforms, formats, designs, and elements play into what comprises effective video, how should librarians select video content for their libraries? Based on recent empirical research, this presentation will help librarians better understand what faculty and students need from academic video resources.

Dr. Michelle Miller, Professor of Psychological Sciences at Northern Arizona University and Michael Carmichael, Senior Publisher at SAGE Publishing, will utilize their own original research to:
  • Lay the foundation for video’s impact on student engagement in today’s evolving technological learning environment
  • Share original research on the unique behavior and preferences regarding academic video among faculty and students (e.g. desired function, type, features, collection acquisition, and use) to help guide libraries in adopting video content that best supports engaged learning
  • Highlight the benefits of video use for teachers and learners in stimulating stronger course performance, affecting student motivation, and confidence, and attitudes
  • Share findings and insights on strategies for using instructional technology for effective teaching
  • Share findings and insights on the effect of video on learning outcomes, dissecting different ways that design, including length, presenters, and visuals affect student engagement and learning.
The presentation will be moderated by Austina Jordan, Associate Professor of Library Science, Collection Management Librarian, and Coordinator of Information Services at the University of North Georgia at Gainesville. Ample time for Q&A will follow.
