Special Issue of The New Educator: Video as
a Tool in Novice Teacher Development
This special issue of The New Educator is dedicated to exploring, analyzing,
theorizing, and problematizing video as a tool in teacher development.
Contributions will draw from researchers and practitioners working with preservice
teacher candidates and novice teachers (Years 1–3) in a variety of
settings, countries, and contexts. We are particularly interested in exploring
video as a tool in the mediation that takes place in the mentoring, coaching,
and supervision of novice teachers, both pre- and inservice.
Specifically, we seek articles that focus on one or more of the following
1. Research conducted by teachers, teacher educators, supervisors, and
school-based mentors on their practices and dilemmas concerning the
use of video in professional growth;
2. The link between video as a development and mentoring tool and
teacher learning and practice;
3. The use of targeted viewing protocols to support teacher learning via
video, especially to bring focus to populations such as English language
learners and students with special learning needs;
4. Observation skills, evaluation tools, and professional training for educators
5. Balancing the “assist” and “assess” duality in supervision and mentoring,
using video as a tool.
