Since video has gone digital, new opportunities for raising the quality of teaching and learning have come within reach. This book provides the first integrated account of how digital video can be used to develop teaching. Framed within a research-based vision on what is quality in teaching and learning, the book gives an overview of the development from analog to digital video and describes a variety of applications in teacher competence development. A systematic review of the latest research shows how using video helps teachers improve instruction. The author’s own research and development work clarifies how viewing guides support teachers in setting and achieving targets for improvement. An in-depth case study of peer coaching with video spanning seven years uncovers how the participating teachers succeeded in making sustainable changes in their instruction. This book shows not only how using video can help teachers move towards more dialogic forms of teaching and learning, but also how such change benefits pupils’ learning and behaviour. Using video to develop teaching takes the everyday needs of teachers as its point of departure. It explains the activities, processes and organisational conditions needed for raising the quality of instruction through video use. The evidence base involved serves as a basis for practical application. The book concludes with concise recommendations and resources for producing video and using it for professional learning and instruction. This book offers readers a wealth of knowledge, practices and resources concerning a powerful medium, which will benefit them in their work.
