Video Coaching

Practice-focused teacher education

Being practice-focused requires examining the actual teaching

Becoming a self-reflective practitioner requires skills honed during teacher education experiences.

Your candidates will learn to examine their own teaching starting in methods courses and continuing into the practicum experience. Faculty and supervisors can collaborate and align on feedback, too.

Increase candidate access to diverse classrooms

Virtual visits via video provide teachers an opportunity to experience diverse classrooms

Teacher candidates gain access to more diverse settings during field experiences by virtually observing their peers.

Help your teacher candidates build readiness for their full-time classrooms by helping them develop a broader understanding of students and settings during their training. Video observation enables access to new types of classrooms and contexts without driving a single extra mile.
