Using Videos in the Classroom
Harness the power of video for your classroom; here are some HSBCP suggestions about why and how you may use videos in your classroom. Send us your ideas, too.
Video Lending Library
The High School Bioethics Curriculum Project has a number of videos available for short-term loan to high school teachers. Films are available for a lending period of up to two weeks. Complete the loan form below to request titles.
Loan Request Form
To request a video for short-term loan, please fax the completed request form to 202-687-8089 to the attention of Laura Bishop, Ph.D., Program Director. Dr. Bishop will be in contact with you to arrange the loan. We welcome any feedback you can provide about student reactions or your evaluation of the effectiveness of the video in your classroom.
Video Titles in the Bioethics Library
You may find other video resources for classroom use by searching the reference collection of the National Reference Center for Bioethics Literature. While these videos are not available for loan, the information you find may help you to borrow the title through your local library or make to contact with the distributor for obtaining a copy for classroom use. Only the video titles retrieved under "Video Lending Library" (see above) may be requested for short-term loan from the HSBCP.
How to Find Bioethics Audiovisuals
Resources to Identify, Purchase, and/or View
Videos on Bioethics Issues — Follow these links to library catalogues, documentary and educational filmmakers, and online video resources. You'll be able to buy, rent, and read about titles that you may wish to use in your classroom.
As long as public viewing or performance rights are purchased, commercial and educational films may be used to create wonderful programs. Feature a program of clips to introduce educators, practitioners and students to the range of available titles OR incorporate clips from one or two titles in a classroom session to enliven discussion. Some uses may only require educational or classroom use rights.
These past programs are offered as samples. The first is the most recent movie program from the Kennedy Institute's annual Intensive Bioethics Course. The second program was developed for a fun evening during a workshop for science teachers who were learning to incorporate ethical issues and topics into their classrooms.
