Remote In-Service Vocational-Technical Teacher Education for Beginning Teachers.
Cameron, Walter Audry
To determine the effectiveness of three remote techniques of in-service teacher education for three selected teaching skills, a sample of 39 beginning vocational teachers was randomly selected and assigned to one of three equal size treatment groups. All participants video-taped a 5-minute lesson, and were instructed to view an instructional model, and to practice the skills in the model by teaching 5-minute lessons to four students. Each teacher mailed his video tape to the teacher educator. The treatments consisted of utilization of the instructional model with video-phone feedback, video-mail feedback, and video-self-evaluation. At the end of the 8-week experiment, post-tests were made of the 36 participants who completed the program. Two experienced educators rated the teaching skill performance on all pre- and post-tests. An analysis of covariance test revealed no statistically significant differences among the three treatment groups. No significant differences were obtained on the expressed level of satisfaction with the three techniques used. All groups improved their post-test teaching performance over their pretest teaching performances. It was recommended that remote supervision techniques be continued in Colorado. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to The Ohio State University. (DM)
