Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
In the absence of systematic benchmarks prior to the pandemic, previously underutilized technologies, such as video, are now replacing in-person instruction and raise concerns about quality, accessibility, and intended student engagement. Instructor enthusiasm concerning the use of video lectures has led to widespread adoption without validation of intended instructional goals. The need to reconceptualize, categorize, and promote effective video-based instructional practices has become clear.
