Task Two: Instruction and Video

Instruction consists of learning environment, engagement in learning, deepening thinking and subject-specific pedagogy.  There are two parts to task two:

Part A: Video Clips

You MUST refer to the Task 2, "What Do I Need to Do?" section of your program handbook to determine:

  • Number of clips required or allowed
  • Length of clip(s)
  • Which students can or must be included in the clip (i.e. whole class? small group? focus learners?).

Video Resources

You MUST have consent forms for ALL students in video.
