Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Delivery of 'content' knowledge instruction in secondary school and university education contexts is increasingly moving from teaching or lecturing to students in classrooms or lecture theatres to delivering the same content through online video. Clearly, this is a different pedagogical mode, and simply video recording a lecture is not best practice for enhancing students' content knowledge and understanding. This Special Issue of 'Education Sciences' is devoted to research studies that have, in various ways, addressed the question "What are the best pedagogical approaches for creating video lecture material to enhance learning?" Are there identifiable features of video content delivery lecturing/teaching that demonstrably lead to enhanced student understanding? Are these different at different levels of education (e.g. for adolescent and adult students) or for different subject areas (e.g. arts, humanities, sciences)? Are different video media (e.g. voice-over-slideshow, lecturer, voice-over-screen capture) or particular combinations of media more effective for learning? This Special Issue seeks to gather research evidence to address these and other questions about the use of online video for content knowledge delivery in education.

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted private basic education in the Philippines to hold a professional developmental program for faculty members using web video conferencing (WVC). Given the uncertainties of WVC educational quality and the challenge of shifting to a fully online environment, this study aimed to evaluate the use of web video conferencing and the development of a faculty development program on sustaining teacher leadership and academic vitality through research. The training was held for nine weeks, and 33 faculty members of the institution participated. Quantitative data include survey questionnaires on perceptions on action research, perceptions on technology integration, training proficiency, and pedagogical practices. Qualitative data include analysis of video recordings, reflection journals, observation notes, and actual research outputs. It utilized descriptive developmental action research using a convergent mixed-method approach, and thematic analysis. Findings show that the use of WVC as a mode of delivery proved successful in creating an effective educational experience for all the participants as evidenced by their enhanced teacher leadership skills and academic vitality. These skills were demonstrated through their willingness to promote professional inquiry as shown by their actual research outputs and demonstration of high proficiency in the adoption of technology integration.
