Bringing Expert Teachers into the Educational Psychology Classroom: Using Video-Captured Insights in Case Study Analysis
Nirula, Latika; Peskin, Joan
Teaching Educational Psychology, v3 n1 p1-23 Jan 2008
This study evaluates the effects of teacher candidates' having access to expert teachers' modeling analytic thinking as the experts read case studies used in teaching educational psychology. Videos which consisted of selected segments of multiple expert teachers thinking aloud were developed. In the first experiment, one of these videos was viewed by elementary-level teacher candidates participating in online database discussions using Knowledge Forum[R] 4.5. In Experiment 2, secondary-level teacher candidates who viewed one of the videos provided longer and more conceptually-rich case study analyses than a control group which engaged only in small group discussion. Results from both experiments suggest that the composite video of experts' insights served as an engaging pedagogical tool for instructors to use in case study analysis. Implications for instruction are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
