Digital observation of teaching practice

Dyke, Martin, Harding, Alan and Lajeunesse, Sue (2006) Digital observation of teaching practice At AERA 2006 Annual Meeting: Conference of the American Educational Research Association. 07 - 11 Apr 2006. 15 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The research reported here was commissioned in 2005 by the UK Department for Education and Skills Standards Unit to consider the use of synchronous digital video for observation, feedback and assessment of teaching practice in tertiary education. A protocol for the remote observation of teaching was developed after consultation with teachers and observers and the analysis of questionnaire responses that explored attitudes and preferences toward the process. To date twenty one lessons have been observed using the protocol and the observations and judgments of observers compared. The paper reports this work in progress and offers preliminary findings from the consultation with teachers and observations of teaching practice. The research to date suggests that the model of synchronous digital video observation is viable in the conditions currently tested. The remote observer’s description and grades were compared to those in the classroom and correlated.
