Video Grand Rounds (VGR) provide teacher candidates with an introductory framework for classroom observations and subsequent discussions guided by faculty. This provides a conceptual foundation for their future study in teacher education.
Teacher candidates view video segments of typical classrooms, complete structured classroom observation protocols, and then debrief with faculty regarding the observations.
As a variety of programs pilot VGR, multiple delivery formats will be explored. Additionally, as the need for digital archives of full length lesson videos increases, collaboration with school partners locally strengthens as videos are captured of current best practices.
