Lessons Learned Designing Online Video-based Instructional Modules For Secondary Mathematics Teacher Candidates
Tuesday, March 19 11:30 AM-12:30 PM Location: Celebrity Ballroom 3
Abstract: Teacher education programs are being called to create opportunities for teacher candidates to better understand the ways that students think about mathematics. Building upon research on video cases, we iteratively developed an online video-based instructional intervention that consists of a series of online modules centered around videos of students solving secondary level mathematical tasks. In this session, we will describe how we recorded the videos (with a specific focus on the technology used) and how we iteratively developed the online platform for the project. A hands-on demonstrated will be given to illustrate the most recent recording set-up for capturing students’ mathematical work, along with examples of how we have used the technology for capturing student work to enhance previously collected videos. We will conclude with lessons learned and tips and strategies other researchers and teacher educators can follow to develop similar video-based instructional interventions.
