The shift to streaming video as a medium for teaching and learning has transformed course delivery and the means by which videos are selected and integrated into course systems. This change has presented new challenges around copyright, technical and accessibility issues, and effective lines of communication between faculty and librarians, including new challenges and benefits to students who are increasingly scrutinizing the value of their own course experiences. How much do librarians know about effective instructor practice with streaming video? What do they understand about students’ engagement and interaction with these resources? This session will bring these major stakeholders together: the librarian, the faculty member, and the student to talk over results from recent qualitative research conducted at the UNC Greensboro (UNCG). It will give librarians a full picture of constituent expectations in streaming video resources as they face the growing demands for video as a teaching and learning resource. Christine Fischer, Head of Technical Services at UNCG and Michael Carmichael, Head of Visual Media at SAGE Publishing, will be present in the room to lead a lively discussion with the audience including important and valuable contributions via video conference from Dr. Dina Samora, Program Chair at Colorado State University Global Campus, and Elizabeth Ellis, a Master's student in Library and Information Studies from UNCG to:  • Share findings of instructor and student focus groups on specific user interactions and experiences with video. • Provide librarians with a full view of streaming video within the library: o Faculty: How they meet the needs of digital-native students with streaming video in their courses, the importance of incorporating this resource, and observed impacts as a result o Students: Why they like streaming video resources, feedback on how instructors have accommodated this preference, and its impact on their academic success. • Incorporate audience feedback, experiences, and a candid assessment of streaming video as an educational resource by cultivating a rich exchange of practices and insights.
