Self-observation of online teaching

Every cloud and all that. Online learning may not be ideal but it provides some great opportunities for CPD.

The last time I filmed myself teaching was, wow, during my DipTESOL (2014). I remember filming my lessons to analyse my instructions for the self-development record (post here). Six years on, and recording online lessons with my YLs is now standard practice for safeguarding purposes. This means I have tonnes of footage of my own teaching to analyse. Well, if I dare to view it that is… *cringe*.

It’s hardly the most riveting viewing, but it’s really useful. Google Meets upload a lesson recording to Google Drive really quickly, so you don’t have to dwell on bad teaching moments for too long. Wait 10 minutes for the upload, skip to a certain moment in the recording, critique yourself, plan some steps to improve next time… then get ready for your next call.
