“ETI inspectors have delivered an innovative and extremely well-received Empowering Improvement – Stepping Forward Together project to just under 1300 middle and senior leaders across early years settings, primary, post-primary and special schools and EOTAS settings… So far it all has gone very well and the teachers have especially liked the debate and discussion generated through our use of Mediamerge video clips across the phases.” Barry O’Rourke, Assistant Chief Inspector, Department of Education Training Inspectorate (ETI) in Northern Ireland.

“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.” 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.” Chris Souch, Technology lecturer

Our programme director found some other classroom videos but the quality varied. He then looked at the free lesson previews on your site and said it looked like a great platform with high quality videos. The pricing also worked well for us. We are now using the resource with 230 of our scholars and plan to continue using it into the future. Richard Warenisca, Project Manager, Future Teaching Scholars

“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

Carly talks benefits

In this two minute interview, Carly from Aquinas College talks about the benefits of watching the pre-recorded lessons of other teachers. She says:

  • with video, you can step back and see elements of lesson very clearly
  • you can learn from watching teachers from any subject teach
  • you can be more objective in your observation when not watching a colleague
  • you can reflect on what others do and improve your own practice.

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.

  • The Top Ten Teaching Methods (video duration: 1 hour, 24 minutes)
