Frankfort Center Video

Every candidate for a degree or certificate at the Hunter College School of Education is required to go through a process of video analysis of their teaching. As part of the student teaching or practicum course, students record video of their teaching. From there, the teaching is reviewed by the candidate, and by the field supervisor faculty. The candidate and the supervisor then analyze the video together, with an eye to improving practice. 

Later in the semester, the candidate may excerpt a short clip - about five to seven minutes - that illustrates a specific teaching skill or classroom situation, and contributes it to the clip library. These clips are available to all faculty at the School of Education to use in content or methods courses.

For teacher candidates working with video:


Please consult with your seminar leader and field supervisor on the platform of choice for your program.


Video Clip Library (3-5 minute clips)

After the student has reviewed a lesson video with the faculty supervisor, he or she may select a short and interesting 5 to 7 minute clip to contribute to Hunter's permanent clip library, which is available to all faculty.

Enter the Video Clip Library (Password required, which may be obtained from Dermot Foley, or from your seminar faculty.)

PDF Tutorials

PLEASE NOTE: These PDF Tutorials cover technical details on both the Hunter SOE VAT program, a required process of video analysis of student teaching conducted by faculty, and the edTPA, a performance-based assessment process for certification in the State of New York. There are technical and pedagogical differences between the two processes, so teacher candidates should pay particular attention to the specifications in the document(s) to ensure appropriate use.
