Obstacles For Instructional Coaching in Higher Education
Effectively preparing teacher candidates to meet the demands of diverse 21st century classrooms.
Video Solutions for Higher Education
Incorporating the platform has provided pre-service teachers with opportunities for purposeful and practical discussions about theory in practice, personalized and timely support, and intentional and critical reflection.
The Teaching Channel Platform has become a critical component of almost every aspect of our initial certification programs. Common videos are shared in courses to facilitate purposeful and practical discussions about theory in practice. Teacher candidates share short videos of their own teaching with professors, supervisors, and/or other teacher candidates to receive feedback on a pedagogical practice recently discussed in class. Through video reflections, teacher candidates develop critical and reflective thinking skills as they analyze teaching practices, student engagement, and student learning in their own classrooms. Personalized, timely and frequent support is provided throughout the program as teacher candidates leave timestamped comments and share videos with their peers, cooperating teachers, supervisors, and college professors.
Continued Impact of Video Solutions for Teacher Candidates
Using video with the platform as a component of teaching, coaching, collaborating, observing, and reflecting in our education programs has transformed the way we support and prepare our teacher candidates at LaGrange College. We have seen growth in our teacher candidates’ ability to effectively implement relevant and appropriate instruction to meet the needs of diverse learners. Our teacher candidates have truly become astute reflective practitioners who are capable of making adjustments both during and after instruction. We are confident that our teacher candidates are ready to meet the diverse needs of students on the first day of the first year of their teaching career, and we rest assured knowing that our candidates have the necessary reflective skills to continue to hone their craft in the future.
