About SAGE Video

SAGE Video is a series of online collections developed in partnership with leading academics, societies and practitioners, including many of SAGE’s own authors and academic partners, to deliver cutting-edge pedagogical collections mapped to disciplinary curricular needs within the social sciences.

Each discipline collection is now presented alongside our book and reference collections on SAGE Knowledge. SAGE Video supports use across higher education, from pedagogical needs for undergraduate teaching and learning, through to higher level academic research.

SAGE Video combines originally commissioned and produced material with licensed videos and co-productions, to provide a complete disciplinary resource for students, faculty, and researchers.

With each collection overseen by an esteemed and international Editorial Advisory Board, the SAGE Video is a must-have for any academic library with holdings in these fields.

Looking for a clear tutorial on product pricing strategies, or a step-by-step to team leadership essentials? Outstanding lecturers from a multitude of different universities give short, clear tutorial videos, all carefully tagged to a disciplinary taxonomy. Case study videos focus in on real world examples, such as the Rana Plaza factory collapse or the strategic alliance between Disney and Pixar, to encourage students to apply theory to practice and reflect on the issues raised.

V.               Politics & International Relations

With content types designed to fit a variety of learning needs, this collection contains 132 hours of video and reinforces course fundamentals, introduces new perspectives, and brings theory to life with in-practice examples. See politics in action as MP Steve Reed meets with members of his constituency, as John McTernan shares insights on his role as political adviser to Tony Blair and Julia Gillard, or hear an ex-IRA member turned community peace activist discuss his personal experiences during the Troubles.

Kennedy, provide an additional stream of content for classroom use.

VI.               Psychology

This collection includes 134 hours of video and reinforces course fundamentals, introduces new perspectives, and brings theory to life with in-practice examples. Students can truly get an image of what theory into practice really looks like with original films focusing on the work of professional psychologists: from forensic and clinical psychologists working with offenders inside a prison; clinicians – often involving real patients – examining a full spectrum of mental health disorders; sport psychologists; educational psychologists; and many more besides.

Many videos also feature leading experts in the field discussing their scholarly work: there are authors of SAGE’s most downloaded journal papers discussing the impact of their research and giving advice to students on how to interpret their findings; plus, there is exclusive SAGE footage of leading speaker sessions from the most recent Psychonomic Society conference in Chicago, featuring work that will be published in the world’s top-ranked journals over the next two years.

Five Pillars of SAGE Video Content 

We pride ourselves on the following elements core to SAGE Video:

Expertise

  • A multitude of experts have participated: academics, tutors and practitioners including many of our authors, editors and our partnering academic societies
  • A team of Editorial Board members have overseen collection development from helping us refine the overall content strategy and developing the taxonomy, to auditing selections and recommending videos to include
  • Our in-house subject editorial experts at SAGE have contributed to the content strategy

Pedagogical Focus

Each collection contains a multitude of different content types designed to meet the needs of different end users, such as the undergraduate student, the graduate student, faculty needing video support in their teaching, or researchers looking for content to aid their academic work. The content types that can be found in the SAGE Video collections are: 

  • Archival Content:  Typically historical footage from the archives, almost certainly licensed or purchased content, representing key historical figures or events in their space and time (e.g. interviews with classic theorists or scientists discussing famous experiments).
  • Definition:  Comprises two types of video: 1) a SAGE Short, a 1-2 minute description of a key concept by a leading academic, with some elevation of that concept (e.g. how it's seen in research, the real world, in practice); 2) Or a 7-10 minute video by a Reference author examining a concept's meaning in depth, looking at its relationship with other concepts, current research trends, and historical contexts surrounding the foundation of that concept.
  • Documentary:  Almost always a licensed film handling a subject matter in long-form, this might be a BBC film examining the rise of obesity in children, or another documentary addressing the issue of race in society etc.
  • Interview:  Can be either 1) a SAGE Expert interview of about 40-45 minutes (segmented into 13-15 questions/topics) with a leading academic in the field and going into depth about their experience in given field and/observations on trajectories, or 2) another video interview with an academic or practitioner (equally segmented into chapters).
  • Lecture:  Could be either an originally filmed SAGE Lecture or a licensed lecture from another source, these longer form videos will be engaging videos covering major syllabi topics in the social sciences.
  • Panel Discussion:  This might be SAGE Forum content filmed directly at a leading academic conference, or alternative video (licensed or otherwise) illustrating conversation or debates between people with differing opinions and perspectives.
  • Tutorial:  Can be either a 1) SAGE Tutorial providing overview of key course topic in 10-15 minutes, or 2) another Tutorial film explaining the principles of a key course topic; how to understand it, how to do it (e.g. a research method), what the key points about a key topic are etc.
  • Raw/Observational Footage:  Often, non-narrated and non-contextualised footage of an event or experience, for example classroom behaviour in an elementary school or a real counseling session.
  • Video Case:  Could be a SAGE Case Study which is a 10-15 film examining a certain context or problem under the microscope pertinent to syllabi needs (controversial research, business case, interesting real life event explaining behavior) to help shed further light on a key course topic; or 2) a 5-10 minute video from a SAGE Journal author explaining why their (top downloaded) paper was so impactful, how a student might decipher it further, what the paper leaves 'unanswered' in terms of further questions.
  • In Practice: Either SAGE In Practice videos or other videos focusing on practitioner contexts, these are anywhere from 5-30 minute videos that help make connections between theory and practice for students by showing them real world application. These films will provide footage on location of authentic situations of people ‘in practice’ to provide students with real life context, whether that is with a teacher in a classroom, a counseling session for psychology, a newsroom for journalism, or an office for leadership.
  • Conference:  Again, could be a SAGE Forum original video filmed at an academic conference, or perhaps licensed content directly from a leading academic meeting. This might be a keynote presentation, a workshop, plenary session etc.

N.B. not all collections contain every content type, but they will be found across all of our collections.

Stability

  • More than 60% of video in each collection is exclusively provided by SAGE, providing assurance that the collections will not be subject to flux and disruption
  • SAGE's licensing approach means that any library purchasing a collection will own that content for the life of the file format provided
  • SAGE is a company that is and always will be independent, which means we have full control of our business models and content development

Curricula and Discipline Matching

Each video is tagged against taxonomy terms for that subject collection; taxonomies are carefully created having examined the curricula and key areas of academic interest in these disciplines. As our commissioning approach is evidence-based, we are confident that the videos closely align with the curricula and disciplines for which they are intended.

Global View

Our authors, editors and other contributors are from around the world. Where we have identified regional differences in teaching and learning, different perspectives are provided in videos with different international voices.
