A Study of the Production and Use of Videotaped Materials in the Training of In-Service and Pre-Service Teachers of English. Final Report.
This study at Northwestern University (Illinois) was concerned with the production and use of video taped materials in teacher training programs. Using a portable, one-half inch video tape unit, the investigators prepared 26 tapes (30 to 40 minutes each) covering many aspects of English teaching (K-12). Thirteen of the tapes were classroom demonstrations and 13 were lectures or lecture-discussions. In video taping the material, several problems--e.g., picture detail, microphone mixing--were encountered, and techniques that seemed useful for increasing the interest level and pedagogical level of "home made" video taped materials were developed. These tapes were shown in a variety of undergraduate and graduate English education courses, in several in-service University courses, in training courses given by local school personnel, and in parent-teacher meetings. No attempt was made to evaluate the effectiveness of video taped materials as an in-service change agent. (Appended to this report is an annotated bibliography of the 26 video tapes, which will be available through the Northwestern University English Curriculum Study and Dissemination Center.)
