6 Keys to Improving Teacher Growth and Retention with Video Coaching

The Institute of Education Sciences recently released the results of a study into the efficacy of video coaching at approximately 100 elementary schools in 14 different districts. It found that five cycles of video coaching improved both teacher practice and student achievement. Those effects were most pronounced, on average, among teachers with five years of experience or fewer.

How Video Coaching Inspires Teacher Self-Reflection

The Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township has been successfully using video in our teacher professional learning for more than seven years. According to our recently retired former superintendent, Dr. Matt Prusiecki, the return on investment has been “tremendous” because “the entire district team is more reflective on practice, we’ve increased teacher retention, and most importantly, raised student achievement by improving the quality of instruction.”
