Video Tape Your Lessons
When I was asked to teach
a lesson in a television studio it was a scary situation. I had several
cameras pointed in my direction and many technicians moving around in the
background. The best part for me was seeing the final product on television
and observing my teaching techniques and body language. I learned so much.
Excerpt from a letter I
received from a former student:
"Hi, I just had to write!
The most fascinating thing just happened. I was sitting on the couch
watching Cable television when I saw a familiar face come on the screen.
It was yours! My you haven't changed in the least bit."
You can learn a lot from
watching yourself teach. I would suggest watching the replay with a
colleague or your instructional coach. They might spot some things
that you missed.
Have your students
evaluate your teaching. We should listen to our students as they
observe you every day that you facilitate their learning. Have a
student video tape your lessons using your device.
