VITAL Video Interactions in teaching and Learning

Presentation: VITAL at the Northeastern Educational Research Association

Prof. Herbert Ginsburg was the invited speaker at the 36th Annual Conference of the Northeastern Educational Research Association (NERA), held October 19-21 in Kerhonkson, NY. The talk was entitled Using Video to Nourish the Teacher's Intermediary Inventive Mind, a reference to Williams James' statement that teachers must use their creativity to bridge the science of psychology and the art of teaching (James 1899). Dr. Ginsburg and CCNMTL's Michael Preston presented the VITAL Web-based learning environment from the perspective of its development history, its theoretical foundations, methods and goals, research agenda, and new insights about the teaching and learning of practitioners.
