Video Self-Assessment

Evaluation of Classroom Instruction

Professional Development is a Career-Long Endeavor

Provides the instructor an unaltered, unbiased, detailed view of their classroom instruction Allows the instructor to see their presentation skills and materials through the eyes of their students Enables the instructor to examine areas of weakness but also areas of strength Facilitates the tracking of specific aspects of progress over time

Consumes a great deal of time: planning, gathering of equipment, playback time, analysis of results Anxiety may result in overly-critical analysis of performance Students may voice concern over privacy Not a valuable tool if it is not evaluated effectively or changes implemented
