Using video-based reflection to improve equity learning in teacher education: Editorial

Opinion Study

Using video-based reflection can help teacher candidates to be more equitable in the classroom, write Dr Bryan Carter (City University of Seattle) and Dr Adrian Cortes (CityU). To teach equity and cultural responsiveness, Carter and Cortes explain that CityU’s teacher certification program uses a video coaching platform to record teacher candidates’ interactions with students and review this footage. Teacher candidates then reflect on questions and consider how they can improve. “[B]eing a culturally responsive teacher takes work, and there’s always room for growth,” conclude the authors. “However, by engaging in reflective and collaborative practices, teachers and teacher candidates alike can improve their craft and create classrooms that support diversity, inclusion, and equity for all.”
