Frankfort Digital Video Project: Analysis of Teaching

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 - a full lesson - and upload it to our video server. 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. These lesson videos can only be accessed by the student, the faculty supervisor, and the seminar teacher.

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.

To capture video, students must:

  • borrow specially-configured cameras from the School of Education, which they may use for a week before returning, or
  • use the free Hunter VAT app on their own iPad. Instructions on downloading the iPad app can be found here: http://server.thunklabs.com/HunterVAT Roxanne Turner or Dermot Foley can provide further instructions on downloading the app.

Students should NOT record video on their own devices, since these will be much too large to upload to our server, and will not be in a web-friendly format.

Borrowing and Returning VAT Equipment

Students participating in student teaching or practicum courses may visit W924, Mondays-Thursdays 3:30pm - 6:30pm, or by appointment, to borrow or return a VAT Camera Kit. Students may schedule appointments by emailing Roxanne Turner or Dermot Foley. Students may keep their VAT Kit for one week. 

 

Lesson Videos (full lesson)

Lesson videos are videos of a full 45 minute lesson. This video is submitted here, by the student, to be reviewed by the student's seminar professor and field supervisor in place of one on-site observation. These lesson videos can be seen only by the student and the supervisor, and are removed once the student has graduated.

Students: Upload or view lesson videos

Faculty supervisors: View lesson videos

 

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 Roxanne Turner or Dermot Foley, or from your seminar faculty.)
