Assessment of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording in Vocational and Technical Teacher Education: Phase IV--Classroom Application of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording. Final Report.
Cotrell, Calvin J.; Doty, Charles R.
This is part of a series of studies conducted to assess the use of micro-teaching and video recording as a feedback device in teacher education. Fourth in the series and the first field test, the study was designed to test two variations in the techniques, feedback and type of student taught in a distributive education methods class at the Ohio State University. Twenty-four preservice and inservice teachers participated in the study, each teaching two 7-minute micro-lessons to peers or to high school students, with and without video feedback. Data collected included ratings on the critique forms completed by the teacher educator and questionnaires completed by the teachers. Statistical tests were computed and revealed no significant differences between the two groups. However, responses on the questionnaire indicated that the teachers who had received video feedback and had taught high school students were more positive in attitude. As a result of this investigation, it was recommended that video feedback and teaching to high school students be included in the teaching practice sessions of the methods class and that teachers participating in such programs be given intensive training in the micro-teaching format.
