The Effectiveness of Feedback in Minicourse/Microteaching in Improving Teaching Skills; A Review and Proposal for Further Studies.
The use of videotape is a critical element in minicourse and microteaching for teacher preparation, yet its role and function have not been systematically researched. Recent studies examining audience and videotape feedback to explain the effectiveness of minicourse and microteaching obtained inconsistent findings. It is suggested that the mostly unrecognized modelling aspect of videotape feedback could be a useful variable for further investigation of the problem. This paper postulates that feedback modelling via the videotape medium in a perceptual or a symbolic approach could enhance student trainees' teaching skills and performance. (SC)
