In my experience, students love watching videos in class, and using them can draw students into material in a way that regular lecturing does not. So, I thought it would be useful to compile a list of videos that people have found helpful for teaching about concepts typically covered in ecology courses (or the ecology section of courses like Intro Bio). These could be videos that explain the story behind a classic study, demonstrate a key concept (who doesn’t love a good interference competition or predation video?!), give an explanation of a difficult concept, or are just plain captivating.
I will post a full list, organized by topic, combining the ones I use (or have used in the past) with those suggested in the comments of this post (with credit given to the person who suggested it, of course!) That post will appear in two weeks, so please try to suggest your favorite videos by Wednesday, September 11.
