There are many ways to critique teaching, but few are more effective than video. Personal reflection through the use of video allows one to see what really happens in the classrooms--good and bad--and provides a visual path forward for improvement, whether it be in one's teaching, work with a particular student, or learning environment. This is true regardless of the focus of the video. This article explains that, whether a teacher wants to observe students, their own performance, or the classroom environment, video is a great way to develop effective learning and teaching. It advises on how to find a focus for the recording, knowing when to record, and reflecting on the video.
