Accentuate the Positive: Video Can Motivate Teachers to Improve Their Skills
Flowers, Jody A.
Learning Professional, v40 n6 p36-40 Dec 2019
Professional athletes spend hours honing their skills through video analysis; attorneys video themselves practicing opening arguments or coaching clients; plumbers, mechanics, and electricians video their craft to demonstrate their work. It could be argued that teachers' interactions have more long-term impact than any other professional skill, yet video observation and reflection is not yet the norm in schools. Done right, using video as a coaching tool can motivate teachers to improve their skills. This article describes a research-based coaching model called MyTeachingPartner-Secondary 1:1 Video Coaching (MTP-S).
