STEM-LINC Webinar: Accelerate STEM Learning with Video Solutions

Accelerate STEM Learning with Video Solutions

Thursday, February 15th at 12:00 p.m. (EST)
Summary: A 2014 study by the Department of Education showed that nearly 50% of undergraduate students who declared for STEM majors failed to finish their degrees, either switching fields or dropping out of school altogether. Given the rapidly expanding need for workers in STEM fields, how can we slow down this rate of attrition? At JoVE we’ve always felt that visualizing science makes it easier to consume and understand. In 2017, we conducted two independent, IRB-approved studies at Clemson University and DeSales University to test that theory. The answer? Overwhelmingly, yes video makes a difference. Students who watched just 10 minutes of video before class scored up to 24 percent higher on exams compared to those who didn’t, and as topics got more complex the difference was more pronounced.
Get a behind the scenes look from JoVE's Director of Production about what goes into the making of each video, and see all the new data illustrating the benefit on learning outcomes when video resources are used. We also know the strong link between a student’s preparation in high school and their success in college, so JoVE created the  STEM-College Readiness Community Partnership in 2017 to forge that link between universities and secondary schools. Hear more about the exciting outreach that is taking place with this program between colleges and high schools nationwide.

Dipesh Navani - Director of Video Production
Dipesh completed his Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Saint John’s University, New York under the guidance of Byron C. Yoburn. As a doctoral candidate he worked in an interdisciplinary lab studying opioid pharmacology using behavioral, biochemical, and analytical approaches. In July 2014, Dipesh joined the JoVE Science Education team as a Science Writer, and since then he has been promoted twice to his current position as the Director of Production. He believes that STEM education for college students can benefit tremendously from JoVE’s video format, and this in turn will inspire future generation of researchers and innovators.
