Video is just a tool and like any learning technology requires careful task design to ensure it has the right elements to drive consumption and “enhance” learning. This presentation will demonstrate some of the key elements of video- and task design with a particular focus on an innovative pedagogy - the observation of videoed expert-student dialogue.

Educators have been somewhat slow in rising to the needs and challenges of how to support students by designing meaningful video learning experiences. There are various perceived barriers and challenges to their use and an uncertainty of how best to start and what is effective? This presentation will take an evidence based and personalized perspective on the use of videos in supporting students for the complex skills required for healthcare knowledge application. It will cover low-entry points for those considering to use video for learning, as well as design principles to create videos for needful learning. In particular, it will cover an innovative pedagogy based on the observation of videoed expert-student dialogue (OVED). This video genre started as a one-on-one consultation between content expert and a student addressing a particular learning need that was student generated and student relevant. It demonstrates Socratic dialogue and the exploration of students’ understanding and higher order thinking skills during the clinical problem solving. This question-to-answer dialogue is then shared on the learning management system for on-demand consumption by the community of learners. OVED videos have been used for other learning scenarios such as the flipped class and competence assessments.
