“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

“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

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.

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)
  • EduWash – 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)
