VITAL Video Interactions in teaching and Learning

Presentation: VITAL at the American Educational Research Association

Herb Ginsburg, Debbie Marcus, Ryan Kelsey, and Michael Preston presented a session called "Virtual Fieldwork for Pre-Professional Training" at the 2006 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in San Francisco on April 10, 2006. The conference theme was Education Research in the Public Interest. Our session introduced CCNMTL's work and methodology, discussed the VITAL learning environment and pedagogy, and explained how VITAL is being used at Teachers College and at the Columbia University School of Social Work, with special focus on our current research framework, data collection, and analysis in both contexts.
