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 excerpts a short clip -- five to seven minutes or so -- 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 borrow cameras from the School of Education, which they may use for a week before returning.

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 Emily Schultz or Roxie Turner. 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 instead of one physical observation.
