Instead of the classic - theory, example, analysis, approach, try using video to first grab attention, then unpack theory during analysis – this embeds relevancy of theory in teaching method. Formative assessments or discussion can follow, where learners apply the same theory but to a fresh video case. 

For assessment, video brings variety and enriches skill sets. Start with a simple recorded presentation, later try production of a scripted video with story-boarded narrative and moving pictures; enabling creative expression of argument with opportunity for experiential and reflective learning. Student films can then become a learning or impact resource. 

A few tips in summary:

Understand how video contributes to achieving learning outcomes.
Wrap around context and background to the clip and include analysis.
Be contemporary – develop a ‘live’ video case study on an unfolding issue.
Vary use – to ignite discussion, as scaffolding for theoretical frameworks, and innovation in assessment.
