Considering how much time I spend on YouTube I can’t believe I never thought to type “microteach” in to the search box. When I finally did I was rewarded with some absolute gold.
This microteach features a catwalk activity and is a good reflection I think of the mildly anarchic nature of a microteach and how everyone gets really involved. This microteach on videogame art seems to be delivered to an actual group of students rather than others in the Ptlls group.
A lot of the microteaches aren’t for Ptlls or from the UK but that’s okay if you just want a general idea of what goes on. I quite like this Art History one.
There are lots of resources about how to use YT in your own teaching:
- The English Subject Centre of the Higher Education Academy article Teaching with youTube
- There’s an excellent presentation on Slideshare about using YouTube in teaching
- Edutopia has a Teacher’s Tour of YouTube and an article on how to use online video in the classroom
- TeacherTube is entirely dedicated to the subject
- Open Culture’s Teaching on YouTube is a fascinating article about putting a course together as well as issues around YouTube itself
