Abstract

SIMIODE EXPO 2021 - B2-R3 - Trefor Bazett - Online Classes vs YouTube: Opportunities and Challenges Engaging a Global Audience

Trefor Bazett, University of Victoria, Victoria BC CANADA

This was a presentation made at the SIMIODE EXPO 2021  - see program.

Abstract: When I first used YouTube to host the class videos for a small online class, I never imagined they would end up being watched millions of times globally. This created tremendous opportunities for mathematical outreach and engagement at a large scale. In this talk I am going to share my journey in the video medium, what I have learned about producing engaging videos for a larger audience, and what I have learned that I have taken back and included in my own teaching for my own classes. I will share my philosophies on creating videos, how to effectively include them in the pedagogical design of a course, and some practical tips to getting started in the video medium.
