Assessment of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording in Vocational and Technical Teacher Education: Phase IX--Micro-Supervision. Final Report.
Chase, Shirley A.; And Others
As part of the series of studies assessing micro-teaching and video recording in vocational and technical education, this study tested the feasibility of applying these techniques in the preparation of vocational teacher educators. Conducted as a simulated workshop for prospective teacher educators, the study involved 12 prospective teacher educators who were assigned to either individual or group supervisory conference techniques, 12 preservice teachers, and high school students who participated in the micro-teaching sessions. Each teacher in the study taught a micro-lesson to four high school students. The teacher educator then viewed the videotape of the micro-lesson and conducted a supervisory conference with the teacher. Finally, the master teacher educator viewed the videotape of the teacher-teacher educator conference and conducted a supervisory conference with the teacher educators, either on an individual basis or with a group of three. Based on analysis of the data collected from the above sessions and from the teacher educators' satisfaction and evaluation forms, no significant difference was found to exist between the two groups in effectiveness on supervisory performance or expressed satisfaction. However, the reactions and opinions of the teacher educators reflected strong support for the use of micro-supervision in their preparation. (Author/JS)
