Video-Stimulated Recall as a Facilitator of a Pre-Service Teacher's Reflection on Teaching and Post-Teaching Supervision Discussion--"A Case Study from Finland"

The use of video in learning to teach is not new. The vast body of research shows that both pre-service and in-service teachers benefit from analyzing video lessons conducted by experienced teachers, their peers, or themselves. In this narrative case study, we analyze one post-teaching supervision discussion about a mathematics lesson. The study provides an insight into a unique setting where teaching practice took place, i.e. one teacher training school in Finland. We aim to demonstrate one pre-service teacher's learning process in the post-teaching discussion supported by the recursive use of video-stimulated recall (VSR). VSR was used first, as a tool for encouraging reflection on the lesson during the supervision discussion, after which the pre-service teacher was interviewed while watching a video of the supervision discussion. We argue that the recursive reflection on different kinds of videos may help pre-service teachers better learn from their own teaching experiences and from the advice of the experienced supervising teacher. In addition, arguably, the recursive use of VSR may be a fruitful method for educational researchers studying teacher education.
