Successful teacher training doesn’t take place in the lecture hall. According to John Henning, Dean of the School of Education at Monmouth University, “Clinical experience is critical to the success of teacher candidates.”
And when you add video reflection and coaching to that experience, teacher candidates can truly build their instructional skills.
Teacher candidates at Monmouth University implemented Edthena Video Coaching to record classroom teaching and receive feedback on their instruction.
“This has yielded numerous benefits for both our candidates and teachers alike,” said John Henning.
It’s always striking to me how much one can pick up when they watch themselves on tape and this opportunity to reflect enables student candidates to really see how they come across in the classroom.
Benefits include accelerating instructional improvement, encouraging self-reflection, and promoting professional collaboration.
