Instructional Ideas

  • Bring into a collaboration session or department meeting when discussing learning styles and study skills
  • Have individuals watch the video at home and turn in their notes for credit
Classroom Considerations

  • Contains a joke about Gandhi having a nuclear bomb in Civ 5, which is the computer game Civilizations 5 and may go over some learners' heads
  • Narration is both fast-moving and dense with information; consider pausing periodically to elaborate or explain
  • The final minute of the video is an advertisement for the episode's sponsor
Pros

  • Thorough and engaging
  • Versatile for any class subject, but ideal for psychology
Cons

  • None
