If you have visited this site before, you’ll know that there are quite a few posts about classroom observation. However, there hasn’t been much on the way teachers observe their own classes with the use of photographs, video and audio recording. To me, this kind of observation seems like a useful solution when you can’t be observed by someone else or you want carry out your own private classroom research. But how much is it really happening and how useful do teachers find it? To find out, I’ve written this short five-question survey on the subject. Maybe you record your lessons all the time or maybe you never do it. Either way, I’d like to hear your views. It’ll take you about two minutes to complete.
Thanks for sparing the time and I’ll present an overview of the responses both in my talk at IATEFL this April and here on the blog at a later date.
