Videotape Recording As a Supplement to In-Person Supervision.
Jarvis, Donald K.
The object of this study was to assess costs, practical problems, and personal attitudes connected with using videotape recording (VTR) as an adjunct to in-person supervision of student teachers. Student teachers' performance in the classroom was recorded by videotape technicians once or twice during their student teaching experience, and the tapes were delivered to supervisors as a supplement to in-person visits. Student teachers allowed to view recording of their teaching displayed favorable attitudes towards this use of VTR, while those not allowed to see tapes of their performance exhibited more negative attitudes. Supervisors' failure to give any feedback at all on a teacher's recorded performances resulted in even more negative student teacher attitudes toward this use of VTR. The student teachers wanted to know ahead of time that their performance would be recorded. Supervisors were moderately favorable towards this use of VTR, but they felt it was inferior to and more time-consuming than live observation. The costs for 17 all-day recording sessions and 12 videotapes totaled $512.69. This use of VTR appears helpful and feasible. Several recommendations for its use are made. (JK)
