A Behavior Modification View of Video Playback: Microteaching.
McDonald, Frederick J.
Social learning theory is the theory that is applied through microteaching. The two critical sets of social learning variables mediated through microteaching are those associated with modeling and feedback. Microteaching is also a way of bringing specific teaching responses under experimental and behavioral control. Thus in each microteaching session, the learner emits teaching responses which are reinforced through videotape feedback or are elicited by viewing teaching behavior which is modeled in videotape presentation. The purpose of research using microteaching which mediate these variables is to determine the optimum combination of modeling and feedback which strengthens specific categories of teaching responses. The research investigates the parameters of these variables which are most effective for eliciting desired teaching responses. Some interactions between type of response to be learned and type of treatment, modeling or feedback, have been found. Modeling has been found more effective than feedback when the modeling cues are highly discriminative. Feedback appears most effective with easily observed and reinforceable teaching behaviors.
