Assessment of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording in Vocational and Technical Teacher Education: Phase II--An Analysis of Face-To-Face, Remote and Delay-In-Feedback Techniques. Final Report.
Cotrell, Calvin J.; Doty, Charles R.
This is the second in a series of three tests of selected micro-teaching and video recording techniques designed to facilitate the identification of alternate ways to increase the effectiveness of vocational teacher education. The tests were conducted to develop feedback techniques in a laboratory under simulated teacher education conditions. This developmental effort further served as a screening device for the most promising techniques prior to seven demonstration and field testing activities which were part of the project, "Assessment of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording in Vocational and Technical Teacher Education." With full cognizance of the limitations of the feasibility study, i.e., the size of the sample and the number of simulated teaching sessions, several conclusions were reached. These include: (1) Teachers may improve their performance on pedagogical skills as well under remote and delay-in-feedback techniques as they do under conventional face-to-face conference techniques, (2) The micro-teaching technique may be more beneficial than the particular feedback technique and used with it, and (3) The micro-teaching process was appropriate for testing the feasibility of the feedback techniques in a simulated vocational education program.
