Proposal Abstract

Following the success of my 2019 TPC presentation (titled "Knowledge Retention and Memorable Learning"), where I highlighted the critical importance of using engagement tools in the classroom to help students remember the materials they are taught, I have spent almost a full year exploring the potential of teaching English vocabulary, grammar items, and common errors to avoid, etc., through short videos incorporating movie and TV scenes/dialogues (often funny). So far, this approach has proven to be very successful both in engaging students in the classroom and enhancing their ability to recall the language items discussed in the videos. I hope to share my experience using these videos as a teaching tool thus far, in terms of my creative process, when and how I use them, and pros/cons. I would also like to share with my audience/fellow educators some of the videos I've created. Finally, I also hope to hear about others' experience with this teaching method (or similar ones) and inspire those who are new to this to try their hand at it!

Statement

This presentation showcases teaching methods using multimedia/video tools to establish learner engagement and promote knowledge retention, which is one of the most current trends in the field of education. These presentation themes align with the 2020 Teaching Practice Colloquium sub-themes of "Connection, Engagement, and Exploration" as well as "Current Trends."
