Assessment of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording in Vocational and Technical Teacher Education: Phase VIII--Feasibility of Remote Supervision of Home Economics Student Teachers. Final Report.
Kelly, Patricia Smith; And Others
Designed to determine the feasibility of remote supervision of college students during their preservice teaching experience, this study focused on the use of three techniques of college supervision--face-to-face, audio-phone, video-phone--to ascertain their effects on student teacher improvement in specific teaching skills and in teaching confidence. Subjects for the study were 36 home economics student teachers who were engaged in their final preservice experience during winter quarter 1969 at Ohio State University. Each student teacher and college supervisor was assigned to a supervisory technique, resulting in 12 student teachers involved in each technique. A pretest/posttest control-group designed provided the means for testing the hypothesesposed in the study. Results of the experiment indicated that alternative methods of college supervision are feasible in terms of student teacher improvement in specific teaching skills and teaching confidence. However, there was no significant difference in satisfaction with the three supervisory methods as expressed by the three college supervisors. (Authors)
