Abstract

This article reviews the literature on using films and videos (whether fictional or fact), particularly in their online versions, to support teaching and curriculum development in higher education, with a special focus on management education. It identifies the value of these inputs in securing student engagement and learning and in exploring difficult concepts in areas such as business ethics. It poses the question as to why the use of film and video is not more prevalent, particularly given the ease of identification and access of appropriate material in an age of online video, and the possibility of using students to search for and identify this material and use it themselves. It concludes by suggesting that one of the problems lies in the decentralisation of responsibility for quality and content to individual lecturers, who are content to use conventional approaches to education.
