When the Observed Becomes the Observer.
The use of videotape feedback in professional development is unique in that it allows the observed teacher to also become the observing teacher. Such self-observation can be an empowering experience for the teacher when the self-viewing is effectively facilitated within the perspective of the observation and feedback process. There are at least three dimensions to this process: (1) general ground rules which establish the context in which the videotape feedback process will occur; (2) identification of specific and general teaching skills which serve as a basis for observation and feedback (a content framework); and (3) a feedback structure which can serve as a guide for the facilitator (a process framework). Each of these dimensions is examined in this paper and a conceptual, yet highly practical model for facilitating videotape feedback is presented. (Author)
