A NOTE FROM THE IDEAS COORDINATOR: Wendy Loewenstein A NOTE FROM THE IDEAS COORDINATOR: Wendy Loewenstein Recording Your Teaching: A Reflective Practice Worth Embracing Many of us get nervous when we have to present to a group of our peers and then it happens. Someone starts recording your presentation. This seems to add an additional level of nerves for presenters. Whether or not you are presenting to a group of your peers or teaching a group of K-12 students, I challenge you to see this as an opportunity to reflect and improve your practices. Once you get beyond criticizing the sound of your voice and your choice of clothing for the day, take a minute to examine your delivery: body language, eye contact, rate of speaking, gestures, and speaking habits (repeated use of “um” or “like”). Then go beyond your delivery to assess your content: how do you formulate your questions? Do you provide adequate wait time? Are you checking for understanding throughout your lesson delivery? Ultimately, the idea is to use these recordings as an opportunity to learn and grow as a reflective practitioner. So next time the camera is rolling, keep calm and reflect on!

Recording Equipment available in the IDEAS Room: iPads

Flip Cameras

Mac laptops
