Professional Development of Teachers: Using Multimodality and Reflective Peer Review Approaches to Analyse Digitally Recorded Teaching Practices
Loo, Sai Y.
Teacher Development, v17 n4 p499-517 2013
Recording technologies have been used in teaching practices. The emphasis on the quality of teachers and teaching in a recent White Paper in England and the need to optimise teaching resources due to the current global recession have prompted a re-assessment of recording technologies in pedagogic practices. In this article, the application of digital technology to analyse teaching practices may be classified into four approaches using: pedagogic theories of learning, a reflective approach, "technical" aspects of the digital technology, and a multimodality framework. This article offers a socio-cultural framework of multimodality and reflective peer review to analyse teaching practices of and by qualified teachers. The findings of this article include: a structured approach to analysing the multi-modes of pedagogic practices, and a collaborative and supportive peer review of post-teaching sessions. These findings have implications for teachers' continuous professional development, teacher education, teaching institutions and policy-makers.
