This article explores video use and the student learning experience in Politics and International Relations (IR). The study brings together and builds on two extant literatures – on deep learning and visual literacy – in order to explore how students make use of three types of video: lecture summaries, current affairs clips and fictional television. Questionnaire and focus group data generate a nuanced picture, with distinct implications for the learning experience. The article shows how different types of video can be linked to the development of different skills for different students.
