Book: Using Video to Support Teacher Reflection and Development
Chapter: Looking at Instruction
This chapter engages educators at all stages (Preservice, Inservice, Trainers) in using video as a material to explore instruction in classroom settings. These activities can be used to continue the development of descriptive observation skills, and can draw attention to how teacher moves connect to learner behaviours. The video materials will be of “unknown” teachers rather than teachers looking at their own videos at this point, thus building on the video analysis work of Chapters 4 and 5 and preparing teachers for the most challenging aspect of video, its use for self-reflection. Where to access such video materials from open sources on the web and how to curate it at the local level are addressed.
