Update from the Science Instructional Videos Online Review Group

Science and health literacy colleagues,

You may be aware that in March Susan Cowles and I formed a volunteer group of science and health adult educators to develop a list of free, online science and health instructional videos, to review some of them, and to discuss how they might be used in science or health literacy classes. Using a LINCS private CoP, we have organized ourselves to work on these tasks. This is a progress report.

Draft Science and Health Literacy Video List. A draft of the video list is available to teachers and others who would be interested in seing it and, I hope, in making suggestions of other science or health literacy videos that would be suitable for adult learners' instruction. If you would like a copy, send me an email ( djrosen123@gmail.com ) entitled "Draft Science Video List Request" that includes your name, your role in adult science or health literacy education, and the email address where you would like me to send it.

Video Review Form. We have included the Achieve rubrics used by OER Commons and added other questions to our review form, which we are now using. If you would like a copy, send a separate email entitled "Science Video Review Form Request" that includes your name, your role in adult science or health literacy education, and your email address.

Science and Health Video Reviews. Using the form we developed, we are now reviewing videos. I anticipate that sometime this summer or early fall we will have a document of these reviews that we also announce on this CoP.

If you have questions about the project you can post them here or email them to me.
