Video Assessment for Skill-Based Learning in Teacher Education
Many higher education programs are jumping on the skills-based education bandwagon, but teacher education programs are way ahead of the curve! Clinical experience, or student teaching experience, has been a standard in the profession since the 1930’s, meaning your program probably already has a well-established student placement component. Easy!
But, how can your university supervisors remain connected to students and support their skill development while they are out in their placements? How can you enable cooperating teachers to provide high quality feedback to students? And how can you be sure dozens or hundreds of students in your program are meeting competency benchmarks?
Enter Video Assessment
Your university supervisors can’t be everywhere at once, but with smartphones and increasingly accessible recording devices, it’s never been easier for students to record their classroom experiences! With the right tools in place, this raw footage can become rocket fuel for your students’ professional development.
Tevera’s video assessment tool allows students to upload video recordings to an interactive platform that brings students, university supervisors, and cooperating teachers together.
Once uploaded, students, university supervisors and cooperating teachers alike can review video footage and share actionable, time-stamped feedback, directly linked to the video.
Finally, university supervisors and cooperating teachers can evaluate student competency development all in one place, so you can keep an eye on student progress across your entire program in real time!
