Fostering Professional Vision of Classroom Management by Co-Creating Podcasts in Teacher Education

Sun, April 19, 8:15 to 9:45am, Virtual Room


This paper presents a didactical learning setting for the development of professional vision of classroom management in a pre-service teacher education program. Student teachers create two podcasts about classroom management in tandems. In the first podcast, they talk about classroom management on the basis of their prior beliefs; in the second podcast, their statements are theory-based. The aim is to foster the professional vision of classroom management in teacher education by collaboratively recording podcasts, measured with a video-based online test in a pre-post control group design. It is examined, whether student teachers who create podcasts (experimental group, N = 216) achieve higher values in professional vision than student teachers who do not create podcasts (control group, N = 180).
