Video & Effective Pedagogy

With an immense change in higher education, from the flipped classroom to the rise and fall of MOOCs, Sage looks to a myriad of research (along with our own), to understand this change and how multimedia, in particular video, is fitting in and driving learning outcomes for students. As a publisher of academic video, most of which is unique content to Sage, we are vested in creating content to meet the needs of all patrons in this higher education environment and want to ensure our videos will be used and ultimately drive strong learning outcomes for the end user.

Take a look at this video from our Senior Publisher of Sage Video, Michael Carmichael, on “Video and Effective Pedagogy: Learning and Application,” highlighting this research and how Sage has responded as it applies the findings in developing our own video collections to provide the highest quality educational video for faculty, students, and researchers.
