Abstract

This paper is a report on the findings to evaluate university facilitators’ (UFs) perceptions of the use of video recordings as a means of teacher observation. The UFs who participated in this qualitative study used an asynchronous video observation tool, in addition to face-to-face observations, to observe teacher candidates during their internship. Results show that UFs perceive both benefits and challenges regarding the use of video as a tool for teacher observation, but see the most benefit in a combination of the two practices. UFs also remarked on the need to be purposeful about the format they use to implement video as an observational tool based on their own time-management needs. Implications for the field of teacher education and a call for additional research are discussed.
