Using Student Produced Video Presentations in Administrator Preparation Programs.
Diamantes, Thomas; Lennix, Lesia
This paper looks at students' video recordings of school-facility assessment that were produced in graduate courses for administrator development. Graduate administrator-preparation programs usually include one or more courses focusing on school housing or school-plant operations. Educators preparing school leaders need to explore ways to train future educators to think efficiently in typically complex environments. By using student-produced VCR recordings and by following assessment checklists, students can use these video checklists to ensure building safety. Such recordings can be used to supplement existing teaching methodology. The incorporation of video recording to assess educational facilities enables school leaders to better understand the various compliance and safety issues in today's schools. To help in this effort, the Council of Educational Facility Planners International has developed an inspection program consisting of 106 criteria to be used when assessing educational facilities. It is hoped that by experiencing a performance task of video recording to assess educational facilities, school leaders will grasp the various compliance and safety issues in today's schools. (RJM)
