How can authentic classroom videos be effective scaffolds for teachers’ continuous learning?

QUINT explores how video recordings from authentic classrooms can be effective learning resources for professional development of teachers:

  • How can authentic classroom videos be effective scaffolds for teachers’ continuous learning?
  • How can video technologies facilitate joint analyses and stimulate discussion about pedagogical choices and their impact?  
  • Does the use of video technology and other digital systems generate new forms of collaborative research between researchers and practitioners?

Using video clips

QUINT will use video clips to address the following key research issues:

  • Discuss pedagogical possibilities and options, targeting work on selective pedagogical and instructional strategies representing areas in which teachers themselves want to improve (e.g., classroom discussions and student engagement, teachers’ uptake and feedback practices, student motivation, representation of content, use of ICT);
  • Develop a shared language enabling teachers and researchers to use observation protocols and other conceptual frameworks collaboratively to enable discussion of quality indicators for classroom teaching; and
  • Develop new and innovative ways for teachers and researchers to communicate and share dialogue by enabling participants to ground their interpretations and analyses of authentic classroom video representatons.
