Teaching through YouTube was a professional service project that I undertook between 2011 and 2014. It explored the creation of a system in which instructional faculty would be trained and encouraged to create their own original videos for use in what eventually came to be known Hybrid teaching formats.
The project grew out of the Hybrid Teaching Workshop run by Queens College’s Center for Teaching and Learning in January 2011. My workshop assignment was the first instructional video that I produced. Over several semesters, I developed instructional videos for our department and learned about the larger process of producing videos for YouTube.
