Video in Second Language Teacher Training.
Several uses for videotape recordings in teacher training have evolved. They can be used for classroom demonstration of a methodology, approach, or technique, or for preserving and re-using a particularly good lecture by an effective speaker. Microteaching sessions or simulations can be recorded and critiqued or evaluated by the student himself. Teachers can tailor instructional materials to their classes and purposes, which can be especially effective in English for special purposes. Authentic prerecorded instructional materials are also becoming more readily available. Videotaping can also be useful for classroom research and observation. Teachers and teacher trainees can find creative uses for this technology, and should not bypass or undervalue the potential of basic video use in favor of more advanced technology. (MSE)
