VITAL Video Interactions in teaching and Learning

Publication: Chapter in the Handbook of Reflection and Reflective Inquiry

Profs. Herbert Ginsburg and Ann Cami of Teachers College and Michael Preston of CCNMTL co-authored a chapter entitled, "Inquiry practices: How can they be taught well?" in the newly published Handbook of Reflection and Reflective Inquiry: Mapping a Way of Knowing for Professional Reflective Inquiry, edited by Nona Lyons (Springer 2009). The chapter appears in a section entitled "Approaches to Assessing Reflective Practice and to the Ethical Dimensions of Reflection and Reflective Inquiry" and discusses pedagogical methods for using videotaped examples of teaching as a manipulative, both in the university classroom and online (in VITAL), to encourage prospective teachers to think more analytically about children and teaching.
