Hi everyone,

I'm curious to know from those who use them how video is used in tutor training.  I suspect that different programs use video quite differently, and that training outcomes vary as a result.  

For example - in your program, are videos watched by groups and analyzed critically (or, more broadly, how do you incorporate active learning principles into the fairly passive process of watching television)?  Does anyone produce in-house videos for training or use video as part of a tutor observation process?  How many use video to conduct training remotely? What percentage of your training program is video-based?  How do tutors respond to the videos as training tools (in my program, for example, a group of experienced tutors were enlisted to evaluate a video training series which we were considering. They reported back that among other concerns they found the early 80's style of hair and clothing to be highly distracting and argued that some students would have difficulty taking the video seriously). 

Thanks, 

David
