Together with a colleague, you can make a conversation video where you discuss or elaborate on a topic. You can interview each other about a relevant topic in relation to the syllabus or make a “good cop, bad cop” on a theory or model.
You can introduce curriculum texts that the students should read. You can explain and motivate why they are important and talk about which points are particularly important to keep an eye on.
