ISJ April 2016: Developing a culture of feedback through microteaching


Eoin Lenihan


Microteaching has been a tried and trusted part of teacher preparation programmes for decades but it is a valuable feedback tool that is mostly absent in day-to-day teaching. This is a shame as the original microteaching model, developed by Stanford University throughout the 1960s, aimed not only to provide student teachers with an opportunity to gain practical experience of and feedback on their teaching, but was also designed with the intent of observing what methods work best in the classroom and, importantly, to provide experienced teachers with a form of in-house professional development.
