Trief, Ellen; Lengel, Jim; Baecher, Laura
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v107 n1 p55-59 Jan-Feb 2013
This article presents the findings of the first phase of a multiyear funded project whose ultimate purpose is to clearly define and then create a video clip library of 8- to 10-minute video clips that demonstrate exemplary teaching practices for working with students who are visually impaired (that is, those who are blind or have low vision). These videos would represent elementary to high school settings in the areas of literacy, braille reading and writing, mathematics, the Nemeth Code and abacus, technology, science, and social studies, as well as for working with students with severe and multiple disabilities. The research questions that guided this phase of the project included: (1) What teaching practices are of greatest importance to personnel preparation programs for teachers of students with visual impairments to be included in this video clip library?; and (2) How do faculty plan to use these video clips in the preparation of teachers?
