Lesson Observations

Watch others teach!

Mediamerge filmed classroom observations include lesson plans, feedback, and supporting materials to help get the best insight into the learning and teaching, without actually being there. It is a high quality, re-usable CPD resource.

Using the same exemplar lessons allows staff watching to discuss the teaching and learning that they see, exchange ideas, and put what they learn from this into their own practice.

Mediamerge observation training materials:

  • show you real practice filmed in UK schools
  • include lesson plans and Ofsted based observation feedback reports
  • have question prompts to get your CPD sessions started
  • increase accuracy in evaluation of teaching and learning
  • allow you to prepare for inspection, interviews, and more


“The videos are excellent for training our observation team because…. They give real life perspective of sessions which can be used again and again. Sessions can be broken down to component parts and analysed in detail. The whole team can watch the session together and then have a professional discussion regarding the strengths and areas for development.They present a flexible and well produced training resource.” Mat Scott, teaching and learning development leader
  “As part of my job role I am required to support teaching staff in improving their teaching techniques. Many of these staff deliver practical courses. Being able to use a video which includes practical demonstrations is a great way of standardising lesson observation grading for vocational tutors. I particularly liked the way the sessions on plastering was filmed and also the carpentry videos. Feedback from the sessions has been very positive about the videos so I will be definitely being using this resource again.” Chris Souch, Technology lecturer
“The videos work really well when we deliver our Observation Standardisation Training Events. They are a great tool for highlighting strengths and areas for development in teaching practice and lift the theory into a realistic environment” Ruth Gilbody, teaching and learning  leader
“I really like what I see. They are about the reality of the classroom – as you say ‘real teachers’ and ‘real learners’. We use these to train staff in lesson observation techniques…such as making judgements about lessons, and considering feedback and evaluation of lessons.” Mark, Education Consultant
“Mediamerge training resources are amazing. They have supported me in up-skilling my teachers and dramatically increasing the number of outstanding lessons. I am keen to continue to use these resources as part of the CPD in my school.” R Gabriel, Principal

Evidence Based Teaching

The Evidence-Based Teacher’s Toolkit is a series of video-based resources where we take evidence about teaching and learning and make it more accessible to teachers. Like Evidence-Based Medicine, Evidence-Based Teaching uses methods which have been thoroughly tested and proven to be effective.

Teachers can make a huge difference to their students’ learning, and using evidence-based methods within their practice will empower them to support pupils even more effectively. The resources are useful to both experienced teachers, and those that are intending to join the profession, teacher trainers, managers, and others trying to improve learning and teaching.

Video-based CPD material included in this collection are:

  • The Top Ten Teaching Methods (video duration: 1 hour, 24 minutes)
  • Learning Difficulties: Different Brains (video duration: 45 minutes)
  • How Brains Learn (video duration: 1 hour, 22 minutes)
  • EduEash – Myths & Fads to avoid in education (video duration: 49 minutes)
  • Pupil Premium: Secrets to Success (video duration: 57 minutes)
  • Learning from good lessons (primary) (video duration: 40 minutes)
