Video: News and research highlights from 2020

UW News

This video is also available with an audio description.

As the year draws to a close, we present highlights from video stories produced by UW News during 2020 — a year that will be largely defined by the COVID-19 pandemic and the many ways it impacted our lives and work.

From transitioning most classes to online learning to conducting research that supports the fight against COVID-19, the University of Washington was involved in providing essential education, research and services to students and the community this year. In the midst of unprecedented challenges, researchers still found opportunities for innovation and discovery.

Our mission at UW News is to share new research and innovative ideas coming out of the University of Washington. In addition to publishing news releases and connecting reporters with faculty experts, we offer video stories, soundbites and b-roll to external news outlets to use in broadcasts, online stories and social media.

As an example of the scope of our work, videos produced in 2020 by UW News garnered more than half a million views on social media.

Thank you to all of the people who collaborated in making these videos. We could not tell these stories without you.
