In this project, 9 student teachers used specially adapted desktop video conference technology to deliver 8 lessons from a Faculty of Education to grade 8 social science students in a public school. They worked in groups of 2 (there was 1 group of 3). Each group delivered 2 lessons over 5 consecutive weeks. The video conference sessions were archived to disk and sent to a server. Student teachers downloaded and reviewed the movies and provided commentary on the quality of the lessons in WebCT. The goal of the study was to determine whether student teachers could direct themselves toward improvements in their teaching performance over the course of multiple teaching episodes.
