By using knowledge clips in education, students arrive at their lecture, tutorial or practical well-prepared to participate. This frees up classroom time for in-depth exploration of the subject matter. Using knowledge clips in education increases the motivation of students, they are given (even more) responsibility for their own study process. That’s why Educate-it organises the Month of the Knowledge clip.
40% of UU teachers use knowledge clips in their education. They use these in 50% of their courses. This was shown in a survey conducted by Educate-it in 2019 among nearly 500 teachers. Instructors who do not yet use knowledge clips indicate that they are too busy or do not have sufficient knowledge about the possibilities.
Reuse of knowledge clips increases
About a thousand new knowledge clips are recorded each academic year. The reuse of previously recorded clips is growing. Of the 3,114 knowledge clips used in education in 2018/2019, 66% were reused knowledge clips, which were recorded in previous years. Once recorded, knowledge clips can be used several times in subsequent courses, so the investment of time pays back for itself and it can even save time. The knowledge clip recordings can be shared by teachers and reused within courses, curriculum, UU wide and beyond. Knowledge clips partly replace lectures. The time that has become available as a result of reuse is used for student guidance.
Offer for teachers
Teachers interested in learning about knowledge clips and the best ways to use them in education will be invited to take part in various workshops and IT tools. A comprehensive list of our offerings can be found on the Month of the Knowledge clip.
