As online, hybrid, and HyFlex modalities have become essential in today’s world, education efforts must continue to grow and adapt. In particular, video is becoming essential to the student experience, with instructors noting an increase in student satisfaction and student performance. Not only do faculty and administration in these areas need to adapt to these changes, but they also need to accommodate the needs of a diverse set of learners with a variety of interests to ensure STEM fields meet those demands. How are you using visual resources to support learning outcomes and increase engagement in STEM education at your institution?
