Graduate School: Next Level Asynchronous Engagement Using 15-minute Snippets


Through reviewing this presentation, faculty can learn how to take video utilization in the online classroom to the next level. Dr Dulce Ruelas and Professor Danielle Henderson created "Public Health Snippets", a YouTube Channel with short videos (in 15 min snippets or less) that are used as an instructional strategy to increase public health student engagement and further critical thinking and student learning not otherwise found through the academic institution. The channel's goal is to highlight different public health issues, graduate student life, and learning on an online platform. As co-hosts, the faculty created a safe space to challenge the status quo, reflect and have lively discussions. The co-hosts have created 45 videos; the channel has over 2,000 views and 142 subscribers in a year. The most watched video, "Our experiences searching for jobs in public health". Written comments from students in the classroom platform and mention of the videos in End of Course surveys provide evidence the strategy is effective.
