Virtual synchronous engagement of professional experience

Winn, Stephen and Lewis, Robert (2010) Virtual synchronous engagement of professional experience. In: Australian Council for Educational Leaders Annual National Conference (ACEL 2010): Hosting and Harvesting: Creating the Change we wish to see in the World, 29 Sep-1 Oct 2010, Sydney, Australia.


A partnership between the New South Wales Department of Education and Training and the University of New England (UNE) is using the connected-classroom and synchronous videoconferencing to rethink the delivery of teacher training and pre-service teacher supervision as well as engage experienced practitioners in the field. Geographic barriers faced by many pre-service teachers in rural and remote areas can be broken down, connecting them with academic staff at their university or with experienced teachers at other schools. Using this approach, pre-service teachers can undertake their placements in their local environment, knowing that the university can deliver supervision and engagement with pre-service teachers and teacher mentors. Based on a reflective practice model this approach is sustainable, creates real time engagement between academic staff, teacher mentors and pre-service teachers as well as providing the opportunity to capture
and store lessons taught by pre-service teachers and experienced practitioners.
