Flipped video pedagogy workshop: Survey results #edsg

Posted on: December 23, 2014


Here are some results of the survey I posted online. They have helped me shape the proposal to YouTube/Google.

Almost three quarters of the surveyees opted for the workshop to be held on Fridays, 4-7pm. I have incorporated the time into the proposal.

The same proportion preferred a buffet approach to a fixed menu of pedagogical-technical content. The buffet approach is going to be challenging and I will have to manage expectations of all stakeholders.

The top two pedagogy-related topics were meaningful content delivery and the pedagogy of questions. I expected the former because teachers rarely venture beyond what they already know. But I was very pleased to see that some were willing to break out of the norm.

The top three video skill-related topics were screencasting, and a tie between simple animation and vlogging. All were expected since screencasting and animation are what most teachers have seen other teachers do on video. I wonder how many will be comfortable in vlogging/demonstrating mode.

About two-thirds said they would attend a Singapore-based conference with a focus on flipping in May 2015. Even more (just over 80%) said they would attend an unconference before the conference. You cannot imagine how happy that makes me because this is an indication of what teachers value at conferences: Not sitting and listening, but connecting and talking.
