Microteaching is a method in which students and an instructor view the students' video tapes to discuss their performance. This method allows students to gauge their strengths and weaknesses, helping improve their teaching performances. The study used digital video of microteaching for self-reflection and peer-feedback of 25 students in a teaching methodology class in a College of Education in the East Coast. After each session, students received a CD with their own microteaching and ones by two other peers. They then posted feedback to their peers anonymously on Blackboard and wrote a self-reflection for an instructor-student conference. This ongoing study aims to find out the effectiveness of immediate peer and instructor feedback made possible by creating multiple movie files and the anonymous peer feedback by the use of Blackboard's discussion forum. Presenters will discuss benefits and cautions as well as the methods of this teaching strategy.
