Using Compressed Video To Coach/Mentor Distant Teacher Interns.
Hakes, Barbara; And Others
Wyoming, a rural state with a small population scattered over vast geographic areas, brought a compressed digital video network online to connect the University of Wyoming and the State's seven community colleges. The College of Education at the University received a grant to develop a coaching/mentoring model for teacher interns over distance. The model is being taught to 16 practicing professionals (student teacher supervisors and cooperating teachers) across the state and incorporates the concept of immediate feedback for teacher interns as opposed to using post-hoc strategies for providing feedback. A study was designed to collect data from each of six volunteer teacher interns and their coaching teams using interactive technology; simultaneously, post hoc feedback was provided to six teacher interns. At the end of the pilot each of the 12 teacher interns was evaluated by a panel of professionals; the evaluation instruments consisted of a set of 10 questions and a 10-minute videotape submitted by the interns of their last week of teaching. The question of whether the communications technologies for feedback were as effective as face-to-face, post hoc feedback was addressed and results were applied to a revision of the coaching and mentoring course. A complete description and syllabus of the Field Studies in Coaching/Mentoring via Compressed Video course is appended. (Contains 6 references.) (LL)
