This paper*i opens with a story of what was once cutting-edge, state-of-
the-art technology and its integration into preservice teacher preparation. It is a
story of the technology, in this case video recording, the theories applied to its
educational use and a specific teacher training method – microteaching. The
historical context of microteaching with video recording feedback is presented.
The further evolution of this technology in self-reflective methods is explored by
considering the combination of inner development of the individual teacher with
the outer, critical examination of social contexts of teaching. The final part of the
paper attempts to construct a critical framework for utilizing both inner, self-reflective
models of video feedback with models of critical video ethnography,
used by the author in overseas educational development work in Africa, that
examine situational practice. This paper will explore the theory foundation of these
models in search of common principles to inform the practical use of video in new
models of critical inquiry and reflection in professional development.
