Caught on Camera: Creating Video Models to Improve Our Teaching

Description: It is widely known that high rates of consistent procedural integrity are important for behavioral interventions to be effective. In order to provide the best and most consistent treatment for our students, it is crucial that we offer effective training procedures to those implementing behavior analytic procedures. One method of enhancing staff and parent training and increasing procedural integrity is the use of video modeling. This workshop is designed to provide educators with the tools they need to quickly create brief and effective videos for staff training and procedural integrity across a range of areas including social skills, play skills, self-help skills, vocational skills, and behavior management. First, we will provide a brief review of the research findings regarding video modeling as a training tool. Then we will review tips and protocols for creating training videos. As part of the workshop, participants will break up into groups, choose programs to address, and create videos models. Video editing techniques such as adding textual cues and voice-over will also be reviewed. In addition we will present data from our research on the efficacy of these procedures. Participants should bring a tablet or computer with recording capabilities for use during the exercises.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) identify the critical elements of a training video; (2) create and edit a video model; (3) teach a skill or prompting procedure using video modeling.
Activities: Workshop objectives will be met through a balanced presentation of lecture, guided practice, video observation, and group discussion. Core content will be taught through lecture and video demonstrations of strategies will be provided.
Audience: The target audience for this workshop is supervisors in the behavior analysis field who are looking to improve staff procedural integrity or implement parent training. The material will be presented at an intermediate level.
