Susanne Nuttall, Instructor
New this year to the student teaching program was a series of seminars for student teachers used in the Seminar in Education course. The group met three times during the semester. Ms. Susanne Nuttall, Instructor in the Curriculum and Instruction Department, organized these seminars to help student teachers collaborate with each other and work on some of the final projects for their programs.
The first seminar focused on the student's Teacher Work Sample and how this project should be developed and organized for review. Other education topics such as reporting child abuse were discussed during this seminar as well. The second seminar gave students the opportunity to concentrate on interviewing skills that would assist them in obtaining a teaching position. Multiple Intelligences in lesson planning was also discussed with an emphasis on infusing music to the content area. During this seminar, students had time to peer edit their Teacher Work Samples. Teacher Work Samples were scored while students heard from their department chairs during the last seminar.
Several of the student teachers are not located on campus or even close enough to campus in order to attend these seminars. For that reason, these seminars were videotaped using CITE's Canon XH G1 video camera. The videos were uploaded to the CITE Flash streaming media server. Each video was loaded into the eCompanion course site used for the course Seminar in Education where students who were unable to attend could view the videos. Attendees could also review these videos. The course site houses other information, resources, and threaded discussions for student teachers and is used as a collaboration site for the students.
These videos can be used in the classroom for lecture and/or in an eCompanion site. You can view a sample of the videos at http://cite.nwmissouri.edu/ic/62-591/10-24/ . If you are interested in learning more about Susanne Nutttall's project and how you can incorporate video into your courses, please contact the CITE Office or Ms. Nuttall.
