Infrastructure for building a video library

How can we build a flexible infrastructure and storage system for video data that supports interoperability, accessibility and joint analyses?

How can video data lay the empirical and technical foundation for differential and systematic research on teaching quality?

Video-based research provides excellent data for collaborative studies, joint analyses, and subsequent reanalysis, but such ambitions require a flexible infrastructure that ensures the data is both easily accessible and secure in terms of privacy and intellectual property.

Central questions

  • How can we build a flexible infrastructure and storage system for video data that supports interoperability, accessibility, and joint analyses, for instance, policies of open access?
  • How can video data lay the empirical and technical foundation for differential and systematic research on teaching quality?
  • How does video technology enable new forms of collaborative research between researchers, teachers, and those who educate teachers?

Specifically, we explore:

  • Technical solutions for building video repositories that support joint analyses, including equipment and storage solutions, a virtual video lab, and software tools for shared analyses;
  • Validation and testing of shared analytical frameworks and instruments (e.g., observation protocols) for analyzing video recordings of classroom teaching and learning across national and cultural contexts; and
  • Videos as sources for professional learning by developing a Nordic video library with an interface that supports new methods for pre- and in-service teachers’ continuous learning
